Arsenal today confirmed that the club will play against the Indonesian national team in a pre-season friendly on Sunday, July 14.

The match will be played at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, which has a capacity of 88,000.

Arsenal’s visit to Indonesia is the club’s first trip to Indonesia since 1983.

In addition to the Gunners playing in Indonesia, the club announced last week that Arsenal will play against Nagoya Grampus in Japan on July 22. It will be the first time an Arsenal first team has played a match in Japan since 1968.

    Arsenal refused to going on summer tours but when they finally cave they go to Asia in consecutive summers. If I was an Arsenal supporter in North America I would be pretty pissed.

    • Sammy says:

      Even if they don’t go to Asia again this summer, does it necessarily mean they have to go to North America instead? What about the other continents in the world such as Africa, South America, etc?
