Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is ‘delighted to have organised’ a friendly with Hibs as the English Premier League giants prepare to travel to Edinburgh.

Arteta’s side will travel to Scotland for a pre-season training camp ahead of the 2020/21 season. Arsenal will face Rangers and Hibs on their travels, vital preparation for Hibs too, who will compete in European football next season under head coach Jack Ross.

The game will take place on July 13th, with a 18:00 currently scheduled. Arteta said: “We’re pleased to confirm our second game in Scotland as part of a week-long training camp that will help us prepare for the 2021/22 season.

“The matches against Hibs and Rangers will be good tests for us and we’re looking forward to playing against two strong opponents. Pre-season is an important time for the squad and we’re delighted to have this organised early so we can get the most out of the two matches and the training camp.”
