Ronaldinho & co set to star at Emirates Cup

A whole array of European talent will be on show during July’s Emirates Cup competition after Celtic, AC Milan and Lyon were announced as the participating teams in the tournament.

The event takes place over the weekend of Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1, and looks likely to attract a massive support for the prestigious pre-season competiton.

The tournament kicks-off at 2pm on Saturday, July 31 with Celtic taking on Lyon, followed by hosts and current Emirates Cup holders Arsenal playing AC Milan.

Sunday’s fixtures also start at 2pm, when a Ronaldinho-inspired AC Milan take on Champions League semi-finalists Lyon, with Arsenal and Celtic bringing the competition to an exciting climax with a Battle of Britain match which is the later game.

    Will be good to see any new blood that Wenger buys in the summer. That said it might be a little early for the likes of Ronaldinho and Cesc as they will probably be granted an extended holiday after the World Cup. Hope I’m wrong.
