A crucial summer beckons for Arsenal as they attempt to go one step further in 2024/25. The Gunners closed the gap further on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but once again couldn't get over the line.

The club's summer preparations have played crucial roles in their two recent successful domestic campaigns, although the presence of two major international tournaments could complicate things this time around.

Arsenal will have several players competing at Euro 2024 and the Copa America.

The Gunners squad are currently enjoying their holidays after a gruelling 2023/24 season, but Mikel Arteta and company will quickly get into their summer work. Here's what the club has planned for pre-season ahead of a project-defining 2024/25 campaign.


Arsenal 2024 pre-season tour plans

With the Euros and Copa America both concluding in mid-July, Arteta should have a full squad available for the start of the pre-season tour. For the third successive summer, Arsenal are visiting the USA.

At this point, the Gunners are currently booked in to face two Premier League rivals in Manchester United and Liverpool. They'll face United, whom they lost to in the States last summer, on 27 July in Los Angeles before facing Arne Slot's Reds four days later on the other side of the country in Philadelphia.

“Our plans for pre-season are taking great shape," sporting director Edu said earlier this year. "Playing against two strong teams in great stadiums in front of so many of our supporters will provide Mikel and the squad with a strong test and great experience ahead of the new season."

While they were beaten by United on the East Coast, Arsenal enjoyed convincing victories over the MLS All-Stars and Barcelona across the Atlantic last summer. New arrivals Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, and Declan Rice all got crucial time to settle into the squad on the tour, and the club will doubtlessly aim to complete as much business as possible before they jet off to the States this summer.

Upon their return, Man Utd's FA Cup final success means Arsenal won't be competing in the Community Shield ahead of the start of the new Premier League season. However, the Gunners will likely host the Emirates Cup against an unknown opponent.
