Arsenal to play Chelsea in China (not today)


Arsenal have confirmed that they will visit China as part of their pre-season preparations this summer.

The Gunners will play Chelsea at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing on 22 July.

It’s the second time we’ve played in the arena; in 2012, we lost 2-0 to Manchester City at the former Olympic Stadium in a game that ended in near-Monsoon conditions.

The match in Beijing will follow Arsenal’s pre-season games in Australia against Sydney FC (13 July) and Western Sydney Wanderers (15 July).
