It’s official, Arsenal is headed to America this summer the club announced Thursday.
The tour will include two matches that will both take place in California. The first match will see The Gunners take on the MLS All-Stars at Avaya Stadium in San Jose on July 28th.
It will be no walk in the park for Arsène Wenger’s men. The All-Stars knocked off some top-level European competition in past years including Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Arsenal’s North London rivals, Tottenham.
The second match will be against Mexican giants Chivas Guadalajara at the Stubhub center in Los Angeles on July 31st.
The All-Star announcement video released by both MLS and Arsenal features a combination of MLS stars including Sebastian Giovinco, Kaka, and Giovani dos Santos as well as Arsenal stars Laurent Koscielny and Arsène Wenger himself.
But, the highlight of the video has to be the cameo from the man who spent time in both MLS and North London.
