Ivan Gazidis: Proud to finalise July's pioneering trip

Club officials first held talks over a visit to the country back in March, and details of the game have now been announced.

Arsene Wenger will send out a side to face the Vietnam national team at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi on July 17.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: "Arsenal has so many loyal supporters in Asia and we are delighted to be visiting Vietnam in July to play a match in Hanoi.

This summer's tour, Arsenal's third successive pre-season visit to Asia, also features games in Japan and Indonesia.
