Hibs will host English Premier League club Arsenal in a star-studded friendly for the Easter Road club.

Arsenal are already set to face Rangers this summer but will now take on Hibs at Easter Road as part of their Scottish tour, based at a training camp in Edinburgh. Jack Ross’ side signed Matt Macey from the Emirates club in the January transfer window while Hibs’ Josh Doig has been linked with a move to London.

Hibs will contest the Scottish Cup final this weekend against St Johnstone as their successful 2020/21 season comes to a close, having also finished third in the Scottish Premiership alongside securing European football for next season. This match will take place on July 13th, with a 18:00 kick-off time.

Interim Hibs Chief Executive Greg McEwan said: “We are delighted to play host to Arsenal Football Club in July in what should be a fantastic glamour friendly for the club and one that we hope will see the return of fans to Easter Road as well.

 

“We have secured our return to European football and matches like these should give us a great taste of what is to come throughout the 2021/22 season.”
