Where will we be able to watch Arsenal this summer and pre-season?

The Euro2020 competition starts in just 9 days, albeit a year late, and we will be able to watch Bukayo Saka, Granit Xhaka, Kieran Tierney and we may see Bernd Leno sitting on the bench for Germany at some point.

But with the next Premier League campaign starting just four weeks after the Euros ends, there is going to be little time for Mikel Arteta to allow his players a break and then get a pre-season training schedule in place in preparation for the new season.

But Arsenal already have quite a few games lined up starting with a friendly against Scottish minnows Hibernian on July 13 and against the Champions Rangers on the 17th. Then the Gunners are set to fly to America (of course!) to take on the Italian Champions Inter Milan, Everton and the Colombian side Millionarios in the Florida Cup. These games are scheduled for between July 21 and July 28.

There have also been unconfirmed reports from Italy that we could be playing an added home friendly against Napoli sometime in July, but I fail to see where that could be fitted into the current schedule (unless they have been invited to the Emirates Cup (which is also speculation at the moment).

After that there are reports that the Gunners will be playing the first Emirates Cup since 2017, but that is yet to be confirmed on the official Arsenal website, but reports have said it would be played on the 6th and 8th of August, with the 7th left free as it is the same day as the Charity Shield.

So, although are lots of ifs and buts, it would appear that we are not going to be short of chances to see The Arsenal in action before the new campaign begins…

    What’s happened to the mini-tournament with the Chavs and Spuds??

    1. Admin Pat says:

      Yes I agree. There is no info at all on official channels

      Maybe instead of Emirates Cup?

      1. Sue says:

        Maybe they’ve scrapped it now, Pat, as the dust appears to have settled regarding the SL fiasco…

      What’s this mini tournament Sue?

      1. Sue says:

        It was mentioned last month, Kev. Not heard owt since…
        Seen as a way of repairing reputations by donating most of the income to charity!!

        1. Kev82 says:

          Totts win that and they will bring a DVD out πŸ˜‚ surprised we are flying stateside with a pandemic going on… They should just play a few local games Sue. Did you see the game last night? Glad Saka scored the winner, because if twinkle toes had of, people would have been crying how he was robbed a place in the squad! Joe Willock has been just as effective on loan πŸ’ͺ

          1. Sue says:

            I didn’t see all of it.. aside from Saka and Grealish, it was pretty dire!! Great goal though..he’s on fire!! Really pleased for him.
            Haha twinkle toes!! Willock has indeed, minus the Ruby slippers of course 🀣
            I’m off to watch A Quiet Place 2 πŸ₯³

          2. Kev82 says:

            Oh it was painful to watch i only tuned in for Saka don’t care about anyone else πŸ˜‚ we have a serious talent there Sue πŸ˜„ haha only Lingard has them πŸ˜› Lord Bendtner has hung up his boots, shocked at that lol. Oh have fun Sue, I can’t wait to see it πŸ˜„

          3. Sue says:

            Yes, he’s certainly going to the top, Kev!! Ain’t it great having such a talented young man in the team!
            It was good, Kev, forgotten how loud it was in there.. I jumped a lot 🀣🀣

          4. Kev82 says:

            Definitely Sue and when he adds more goals to his game he’ll be a wanted man by many clubs but he’s loves the club so I think he’ll be around for a long time πŸ™ haha haven’t been to the cinema in a long time I forget what it’s like πŸ˜‚ well I’ll be cheap and wait for a copy to come out πŸ˜‚ wanna see the conjuring soon.

    Sue, let me know what you think of part 2 as I’m off to see it next week and thought the first film was brilliant?

    1. Sue says:

      Hi Declan.. You’re right – the first one was brilliant. This one was good – not as good as the first though imo. Loved the first half an hour.. made me jump multiple times!! Looking forward to the next one!
      Hope you enjoy it πŸ‘
