A pretty good foursome of teams!

Arsenal have announced the lineup for the 2015 Emirates Cup: Arsenal (of course), Wolfsburg, Olympique Lyonnais, and VILLARREAL CF.  It will be played on the 25th and 26th of July.

Villarreal will be the fourth Spanish team to play in this competition, after Valencia (the first Emirates Cup in 2007, and 2014), Real Madrid in 2008 and Atletico Madrid in 2009.

More details as we have them.

The relationship between Arsenal and Villarreal has grown a bit with their purchase of Gabriel in January and their subsequent loan of Joel Campbell to us.  Hopefully they won't just be using this a way to scout more of our players for another winter swoop!
