I'm sure many Arsenal fans are rejoicing at the news of the Gunners coming to Red Bull Arena this summer for a friendly match against former Arsenal's legend Thierry Henry's side, the New York Red Bulls. Henry will once again reunite with his former side where he scored a record 226 goals during his time there which started from 1999-2007, and on loan in the winter of 2012, leading the club's all time record of 228 goals.

The 2013 Supporters' Shield winners announced that they will face the English side on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at the Red Bull Arena, kick off time for the match is at 5.00 pm.

Arsenal also announced that they will not be playing any additional games while in the United States. The Gunners visited the U.S for the first time in 1989 for an exhibition match with Independiente of Argentina in Miami, Florida. 
The upcoming friendly will be the Gunners second encounter with the Red Bulls in 3 years, both sides played out a 1-1 draw at the 2011 Emirates Cup.
