Not really sure that we can call this a pre-season game in the strictest sense of the word but it is an Arsenal XI and will consist mainly of U-23 and U-18 players.
Kick off is at 15.00 UK time and according to the Arsenal official website, the current squad is as follows.
This is subject to change.
The match, from what I can gather, can only be viewed on Premier Sports TV and not via the official website.
That is a shame because it means taking out a subscription and is a bit of a pain, you can always cancel straight after I suppose but truth be told, I am not really sure at all.
To be honest, info is really scarce on this game even on the official website and that is why I am not really classing this as a pre-season game but even so, would have been nice to have been able to watch the game live and see the youngsters in action.
The one advantage with it being on a satellite channel is that there will be an opportunity to get a live stream online somewhere but that is illegal and I would never recommend anyone do such a thing.
For the record, here is a list of the “real” pre-season games, again, according to the official website
Tuesday, July 16: Colorado Rapids v Arsenal
Thursday, July 18: Bayern Munich v Arsenal
Saturday, July 20: Fiorentina v Arsenal
Wednesday, July 24: Real Madrid v Arsenal
Sunday, July 28: Arsenal v Lyon
Wednesday, July 31: Angers v Arsenal
Sunday, August 4: Barcelona v Arsenal
I agree about arsenal player not being available but there are promotional deals that can minimise outlay and you can cancel monthly subscriptions. You do have the opportunity to watch all the pre season on the channel
Are you a ringer cause I did not write this
Wow! Six Nigerians in the squad….?the future sure looks bright
That’s why we are 2-0 down
Are you serious?
Good news, according to “Untold” it’s definitely live on The Arsenal website.
I can’t make it back to my old hometown today so will watch it on Arsenal.com
Yes, I read that also Declan but can find no trace of that on Arsenal.com and in fact, they are the ones saying it is exclusive on Premier TV
Yeah just seen that myself Martin but I’ll give Arsenal Player a look anyway just in case, fingers crossed ?.
Same here mate otherwise will find a dodgy stream
Really?? I only saw that all of our games are on Premier sports
It will be either text or radio commentary
Quite a few under23 players that I like who won’t be playing:
But I guess they will play with the big boys this summer
Keep an eye on Sam Greenwood; one for the future.
I’m able to watch it on YouTube at present free
