The nightmare called Bayern Munich that handed Arsenal a 10 – 2 defeat over two legs in the second round of the Champions League has been handed the London side again.
The match will hold in the summer. Though it is a friendly match, Arsenal fans will be hoping their team can get a revenge following their humiliation in the hands of the Germans.
Come July 19, Arsenal will take on Bayern in Shanghai as part of the International Champions Cup.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said of the Bayern match: “It will be very special for our Chinese fans to see a game of this stature.
“We have a fantastic following in China and the two games we are playing there this summer will be an exciting part of our build up for the new season.”
The Gunners will face Chelsea at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing three days later, though that match will not form part of the ICC.
The Chinese section of the ICC begins in Guangzhou with AC Milan taking on Borussia Dortmund on July 18.
Three days after taking on Arsenal, Bayern will face Milan in Shenzhen before the competition concludes with Vincenzo Montella’s side taking on arch-rivals Inter in Nanjing on July 24.
