Arsenal's new stadium set for Bergkamp opener
Arsenal's new Emirates Stadium has reached 'practical completion' and will be ready to host Dennis Bergkamp's testimonial on Saturday.
Final preparations are being made ahead of the Dutch star's testimonial, which will be the first match staged at the £390million, 60,000-seater ground.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said: 'Everyone at the club has worked really hard on the stadium project and have done so well in getting it ready on time.
'We are delighted that the stadium has reached practical completion and are really looking forward to what we hope will be a very successful first season and future at our new home.
'It is a fitting tribute that the first match at Emirates Stadium and a new chapter in the club's history gets under way with a match in honour of a true Arsenal legend, Dennis Bergkamp.'
A members' day is being held on Thursday, allowing 20,000 supporters to have look at the stadium before the curtain-raiser.
