Arsenal confirmed Wednesday that the club will participate in the 2019 International Champions Cup, the third time the North London giants will partake in the preseason tournament.
Dates and locations of the club’s matches will be released on March 27.
The Gunners will be joined, thus far, in this summer’s edition of the tournament by the likes of FC Bayern, Juventus, Manchester United, Benfica and AC Milan.
Arsenal most recently participated in the tournament last summer during Unai Emery’s first preseason with the club. The Spaniard took his squad to Singapore, where they squared off against Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. The club also played an ICC match in Dublin against Premier League rivals in August.
