Arsenal to spend pre-season in California

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke confirms that the Gunners will spend pre-season training with his NFL side the LA Rams in California.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has confirmed that the Gunners' pre-season training camp will be in California this summer.

The tycoon announced on Friday that the Londoners would spend time with his NFL side the Los Angeles Rams, who are relocating from St Louis, in a bid to boost the profile of both clubs.

"Arsenal will come back [this summer] and they're playing and training in Southern California this summer for the first time," Kroenke told reporters.

"So that's all good. That will raise the profile of the Rams and Arsenal in North America."

Arsenal's pre-season fixture slate includes a game against an MLS All-Star team that could feature the likes of Didier Drogba, Kaka and Bradley Wright-Phillips.
