Sevilla set for Emirates Cup

Sevilla will be one of four teams taking part in this year’s annual Emirates Cup friendly competition at Arsenal’s Emirates stadium.

Los Rojiblancos will take on German side RB Leipzig on Saturday 29 July before taking on the North London side the following day, with Portuguese champions Benfica the other side in the trophy.

"We’re all delighted to once again be hosting the Emirates Cup this summer,” said Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis.

“Every year we have staged the competition, the Emirates Cup has been hugely successful and a thoroughly enjoyable weekend of football.

"Benfica, Sevilla and Leipzig are three strong clubs, with good players, who will not only hopefully produce some exciting football, but also provide us with high quality preparation ahead of the new season."

This will be the ninth staging of the Emirates Cup, which has been a regular in Arsenal’s pre-season schedule since moving to Emirates Stadium.
