As we approach the end of the current campaign, Arsenal have announced their schedule for the coming pre-season.

Unai Emery with other staff and players will take a flight to Los Angeles where they will be based on July 11, 2019.

The Gunners will be involved in a friendly match with MLS side Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park the following Monday, meaning they will travel to Denver on July 15, 2019.

That will be followed by three International Champions Cup games with Bayern Munich, AS Roma and Real Madrid taking place in Los Angeles, Charlotte and Washington D.C. on July 17, 20 and 23 respectively.

Commenting on Arsenal's presence tour of the United States of America, club managing director, Vinai Venkatesham, said: “The match against Colorado Rapids in Denver is a great way to kick-off our summer tour to the United States.

"We of course have very close links to the Rapids through our mutual ownership and we are looking forward to playing each other in a match which will provide both teams with a competitive challenge, in front of many American Arsenal supporters.”

Arsenal will this time have more players involved unlike in their recent tour of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Several first-team players were on international duty for their countries and could not make it.

They resume club action with a home game with Newcastle United on Monday, April 1, as they look to secure a top-four spot by the end of the season.
