So you’ve heard the mighty Arsenal are coming stateside this summer for the International Champions Cup. Today another venue was confirmed, although just a friendly and not a part of the preseason tournament. Stan Kroenke’s business empire will square off in Commerce City, Colorado on July 15th before heading to Los Angeles to take on Bayern Munich.
Denver Gooners, congratulations. I will sit here still bitter that Arsenal’s rumored ‘West Coast’ tour only includes Los Angeles. As one of three bloggers for this site that resides specifically in Portland, I truly thought Seattle would would be on the list for one of ICC matches along with appearances in Portland due to the new adidas contract.
The last time Arsenal were in the United States Joel Campbell and Chuba Akpom lead us to a 2-1 victory over MLS All Stars. Highlights below.
