Arsenal tipped for Helsinki friendly


The Finnish press are reporting that Arsenal will play a friendly game in Helsinki in August. (link in Finnish) say that the Gunners will take on Man City in the Olympic Stadium on August 10th as their pre-season preparations draw to a close.

The newspaper says that ‘several dependable sources’ have confirmed the game to them and there have been strong rumours of trip to Scandinavia this summer.

If the game does go ahead it means quite the jet-setting pre-season with a well publicised trip to the far-east for games in Vietnam, Japan and Indonesia before the return of the Emirates Cup.

Further details are quite vague so we’ll wait to see what emerges. More on this when we have it.

Hat tips to @kailintinen and Timo.
