Emirates Cup 2013 : Arsenal v Napoli, Arsenal v Galatasaray
On Saturday August 3 and Sunday August 4, 2013, FC Arsenal will host Galatasaray, Porto and Napoli in some mouth-watering clashes in the sixth annual two-day Emirates Cup competition taking place at Emirates Stadium in London, England, UK.
The Club’s annual pre-season curtain-raiser was postponed last season due to London’s hosting of the Olympic Games, but returns for a sixth time this summer.
“We are welcoming three high-quality sides to this year’s competition again and I’m sure we’ll see some great football played over the two days,” said Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis on Arsenal.com. “We are delighted to be welcoming the Emirates Cup back to north London this summer after last year’s break.
“Emirates has been the proud sponsor of the tournament since the inaugural competition in 2007 and we are very pleased to be working closely with them again on the Emirates Cup 2013.”
The Emirates Cup is an exciting pre-season football tournament hosted by English Premier League club FC Arsenal held at the Emirates Stadium, the club’s home ground. It is similar in style to the Amsterdam Tournament hosted by Ajax.
Each team plays two matches, with three points awarded for a win, one point for a draw.
If teams are tied on points, goal difference and goals scored, they are ranked by the total shots on target during the tournament.
New York Red Bulls are the current holders of the cup. Arsenal won the tournament in 2007, 2009 and 2010. Hamburger SV won the trophy in 2008.
