Revealed: Arsenal’s 2017 Pre-Season Fixture List In Full
It has not been a great season for Arsenal fans as to add to their European humiliation, they also missed out on a place in the Champions League next season for the first time under the current manager Arsene Wenger.
Though it looked like the results would end his stay at the Emirates, Wenger has now extended his contract with the club for a couple of years and is expected to take them back to the top of the table.
They are already looking to make some serious signing and Wegner will not want to finish his deals quickly to try and get the team ready for the pre-season.
The Gunners, like most other clubs in England, are travelling all over the globe in their pre-season and have some exciting fixtures waiting for the fans before the start of the next campaign.

Jul 17 Western Sydney Wanderers (11.00, ANZ Stadium, Sydney)

Jul 22 Chelsea (12.40, Bird’s Nest, Beijing)
Jul 29 Benfica (4.20, Emirates Stadium, London)
Jul 30 Sevilla (16:20, Emirates Stadium, London)

They also welcome Portuguese champions Benfica in the final few days of the preseason and will look to get settled with a squad by that time.
They also face Spanish giants Sevilla in what will be a game to get them ready for the Europa League and Wenger will hope to get his team set and ready by the time they face Sevilla in the final game of their preseason.
They travel to Australia then to China and then are back to London, all in the space of three crucial weeks and Arsenal fans will hope that this stringent fixture list does not have an effect on the players.
