Arsenal’s US Tour 2023 squad: Odegaard & Saka lead, Rice & Havertz in for the first time
Arsenal’s US tour squad has just been officially posted, and they will travel to the US to face MLS teams and Man Utd.
Our men’s first team squad, together with colleagues from across the club, departed London Stansted Airport on Sunday afternoon, heading across the Atlantic on an Emirates 777 aircraft.
Following two friendlies against Watford and 1. FC Nurnberg, our first match in the United States will be at Audi Field, Washington D.C on Wednesday, July 19 against an MLS All-Stars team in front of a sell-out crowd. The MLS All-Stars will be led by D.C. United Head Coach, Wayne Rooney.
We then travel to New Jersey, where we face Manchester United in the MetLife Stadium on Saturday, July 22, marking the first time the two clubs have played each other on American soil. It promises to be a popular fixture after our 3-2 win against Manchester United in January was watched by an average audience of 1.92m viewers across NBC Sports, Peacock, and NBC Sports Digital platforms. A US record for a Premier League fixture.
The third and final leg of our US Tour 2023 forms part of the Soccer Champions Tour series and takes us to Los Angeles, where we play against Barcelona on Wednesday, July 26 at SoFi Stadium, home of the LA Rams.
