City, Arsenal announce summer friendly

Manchester City and Arsenal are set to face each other in a pre-season friendly in Helsinki on August 10.

The pair will meet for the final game of their pre-season schedules at the Olympic Stadium in the Finnish capital, just one week before the new Premier League season kicks off.

The friendly between the two follows on from their clash in Beijing last summer, when the Manchester club ran out 2-0 winners.

"This is the perfect way to end our pre-season preparations before the 2013-14 campaign begins," City chief executive Ferran Soriano said.

"We know Arsenal will provide our team with a very competitive match and we are looking forward to what should be a memorable occasion to close a pre-season tour that also sees us visit South Africa, Hong Kong and Germany."

The Gunners, meanwhile, travel to Indonesia, Vietnam and Japan before hosting the annual Emirates Cup tournament, which also features Napoli, Galatasaray and Porto.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: "We have many passionate supporters in Finland, and it will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with them all in what will be our first-ever match in the country."
