After progressing through the group stage of the EFL Trophy, the Arsenal u21s drew Stevenage last week in the round of 32 of the competition. But the details weren’t confirmed until now, six days before the actual game.

Arsenal have finally announced that the match will take place on Tuesday, November 22nd at 19:00 GMT. It will be played at Broadhall Way, or the Lamex Stadium as it’s currently known.

Tickets are on sale on the Stevenage website, with Arsenal fans set to be seated in the South Stand.

Arsenal are one of just five u21 teams remaining in the competition, along with Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The other 27 teams are English Football League senior sides.
