Arsenal‘s 2018/19 season ended in a huge disappointment after missing out on the top four and a humiliating defeat to Chelsea in the Europa League final.

With hopes of getting Champions League football back to the Emirates stadium by the end of next season, the Gunners will play eight pre-season games including stellar ties against high-profile teams like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Unai Emery will begin the pre-season tour against Boreham Wood at Meadow Park on Saturday, July 6 before traveling to America to take on MLS outfit Colorado Rapids a week later. Then play three International Champions Cup matches around the USA.

They will also face Lyon in the Emirates Cup and face Barcelona in the Gamper Trophy at the Nou Camp on Sunday, August 4 in the final game of the pre-season schedule.
