Arsenal and Manchester City are set to take their preseason to Finland.

City and Arsenal will wrap up their pre-season programmes by playing each other in a friendly in Helsinki.

The sides will play at the Olympic Stadium in the Finnish capital on August 10, one week before the new Premier League season begins.

The two clubs faced each other in a friendly in Beijing last summer.

City chief executive Ferran Soriano said: "This is the perfect way to end our pre-season preparations before the 2013/14 campaign begins.

"We know Arsenal will provide our team with a very competitive match and we are looking forward to what should be a memorable occasion to close a pre-season tour that also sees us visit South Africa, Hong Kong and Germany."
