Arsenal will stage the event as part of their pre-season plans.

Arsenal Women will play Bayern Munich Women in the pre-season Emirates Cup before Unai Emery's side take on Lyon, the Premier League club have announced.

A revamped tournament, traditionally part of the Gunners' preparations for the new campaign, will see the FA Women's Super League champions host the Germans on July 28 at 12:30pm, with the men's team playing afterwards.

Arsenal's match against Ligue 1 side Lyon, which is set to start at 3:15pm, will be the only pre-season match played at the Emirates Stadium.

Emery's squad are currently preparing for the Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku on May 29, but plans are already in place looking ahead towards the next campaign.

Arsenal will meet Major League Soccer side the Colorado Rapids in Denver before then taking part in the International Champions Cup, with fixtures against Bayern, Roma and Real Madrid across three cities in the United States of America.

"We are delighted to be hosting the return of the Emirates Cup in a new format in July," Arsenal managing director Vinai Venkatesham said on the club website.

"Supporters will have the first chance to see both our women's and men's teams play at Emirates Stadium on the same day before the start of the new season.

"We are particularly thrilled that the schedule has allowed us to feature our highly successful women's team as part of this event.

"The match will follow this summer's World Cup where many of our players will have featured and will be another indicator of the rapid growth of the women's game."
