AFC Bournemouth have now finalised their pre-season trip to California with a friendly fixture against Arsenal.

AFC Bournemouth will fly over to California on Monday 15th July and will be based at Dignity Health Sports Park, which is the training ground complex of Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy.

The Cherries will be returning to the United States of America for the first time since 2016 and will play two pre-season games on the West Coast.

On Saturday 20th July, AFC Bournemouth will play newly promoted League One outfit Wrexham at Harder Stadium at the UC Santa Barbara campus before playing Arsenal on Wednesday 24th July at the Dignity Health Sports Park complex.

Tickets are already available in an exclusive pre-sale window to Cherries season ticket holders, 19+ home points holders, and those who have previously registered their interest in attending the pre-season tour.

AFC Bournemouth Chief Executive Neill Blake told

“We’re delighted to announce this match and to confirm the final plans of our Bourne in the USA tour this month.

ÔÇťArsenal will no doubt provide Andoni and the squad with stern opposition, as our pre-season schedule continues to build towards the beginning of the Premier League campaign.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to play at Dignity Health Sports Park and to see both new and existing Cherries fans create a wonderful atmosphere at such a great stadium.”

When AFC Bournemouth return from their California tour they play host to two Spanish La Liga sides at Dean Court, with Rayo Vallecano playing on Sunday 4th August and Girona on Saturday 10th August.

What a shame they announced it now, I am going out the week before the Wrexham game, I would have gone the week after if they had announced this about a month ago. – To join the conversation, click here.
