Arsenal to take part in "International Champions Cup" this summer


#1

If you can’t qualify for the real CL take part in the similar sounding one in the summer.


#2

Another champions cup that doesn’t care for playing champions.


#3

How did we qualify?
Is it for clubs from different countries who finish sixth in their league?


#4

nope we qualified because of our immense qualitee and mental strength with the desire to do well. Not to mention our hunger index is extremely high :henry2:


#5

All I know is I saw this tournament relentlessly on my TV over the summer and I didn’t give a fuck about a single game in it. They even had an El Clasico game in the USA which wasn’t in the slightest bit interesting


#6

North American supporters deserved to be fleeced just like English ones


#7

Who are we playing??


#8

Bayern.

We’ve missed them. That’s the only reason we signed up.


#9

We beat Bayern in the preseason last year remember?? Anyways pretty happy this is going down, no doubt Arsenal will be in LA again :heart_eyes:


#10

Wenger’s plan B qualify to qualify to the Champions League? :wenger:


#11

but we’ll already be playing them in Talinn??

:henry2:


#12

Take part in what?


#13

I think this is Stan’s first attempt to move the franchise to LA by showing all the trophies we could win there.


#14

A cup for those not going to the World Cup.


#15

#16

The good thing about these pre season competitions is getting to see games that might not otherwise be possible. :gunnersaurus:


#17

At least before we play PSG in this competition we’ll be able to hear Wenger remind us how close he was to signing Mbappé again!


#18

Better get the open top bus out and dusted down .


#19

Do we even have time for this if we have to play those early Euro League qualifiers? lol


#20

Also the Emirates Cup is usually the last weekend of July/first weekend of August what about that aswell?!

Finishing 7th could mess up our whole pre season :joy::joy::joy:
