Arsenal in Dubai to play friendly match and you can get tickets

The famed Premier League football side will be facing up against Dubai’s Al-Nasr Dubai SC in a must-watch friendly match during their international break.

Kicking off at 6pm on Tuesday March 26, the game will mark the formal opening of the newly built Al Maktoum Stadium. And what a kick off it will be.

Looking to nab those tickets on the double? They go on sale Saturday March 16 according to Arsenal's official website, and will be available on platinumlist.net. So make sure you have that clicking finger at the ready.

Ticket prices start at Dhs100, so you might as well get in on this bargain.

Arsenal’s next Premier League match isn’t until Monday April 1, and have decided to come to Dubai for some warm weather training.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said: “It will be great to get some warm weather training and break up the usual routine as we enter the final stage of the season.

“The facilities in Dubai are fantastic and it will be an honour to be part of the formal opening ceremony for the new stadium,.

This isn’t the first time the Gunners have faced Al-Nasr Dubai SC, as Arsenal won a match between the squad with a 3-1 victory back in November, 1976. After 43 years, who knows what team will come out victorious.

During the five-day trip, the team will also be visiting the palace of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and the Minister of Finance and Industry of the UAE, and the Rashid Paediatric Centre.

Dubai has had a host of big name teams come over, including Manchester United staying at One & Only Royal Mirage, along with Liverpool FC Legend Steven Gerrard in Barasti last year.
