After last Summers failed attempt to travel to the USA due to the global pandemic, Arsenal's mens first team will be participating in this Summers FC Series.
The FC Series is a national expansion of the Florida Cup, held in the state since 2015 featuring clubs from across the globe.
Arsenal will play Orlando City on Wednesday, July 20 at Exploria Stadium – the home of the MLS side. Their US trip will culminate in a fixture against Chelsea for the Florida Cup at Camping World Stadium on Saturday, July 23.
Mikel Arteta, said: “We’re very pleased to see our pre-season plans taking shape with the announcement of our trip to the United States to take part in the FC Series. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen our fans in the US and we’re looking forward to playing in front of them. We’ll be playing some good sides that will provide strong opposition and the training and matchday facilities in Orlando will provide a first-class environment for our preparations for next season.”
Technical Director Edu, added: “The FC Series, together with our Orlando training camp, will provide Mikel and the squad with an excellent level of preparation as we focus on next season. We look forward to confirming further plans for our pre-season very soon.”
