Arsenal To Tour Nigeria Next July?

by on December 12, 2011

According to reports Arsenal will go to Nigeria for their pre-season tour next year in July. Nothing has been confirmed yet on the Arsenal website, so we cannot know if it’s true yet. The North London side went to Asia for their pre-season tour this year. They played two games, one in Malaysia and another in China. In previous years Arsenal would go to Austria for their pre-season tours.

Fifa-match agent David Omigie told

“Arsenal will tour Nigeria ahead of the 2012-13 season and will play against some selected Nigerian clubs,”

Due to the Olympics next summer there won’t be an Emirates Cup and it will be postponed until the following year. The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship is also next summer as well alongside the Olympics. This means if Arsenal do go on tour to Nigeria a number of international players will miss it because of the Euros and Olympics.

    It would be wonderful for the millions of Arsenal fans in Nigeria and Africa. I am not quite sure it will happen because economic factors always play a major role in determining such things and I do not think going to Nigeria would fulfil that.
