Dubai - The friendly match will be held at the Al Maktoum Stadium in Dubai on March 26.



Arsenal Football Club on Thursday boarded a newly branded Emirates A380 with a livery featuring a montage of Arsenal first team players, a press release said. 
The team are making their way to Dubai for a friendly match with Al Nasr Sports Club.
The friendly match will be held at the Al Maktoum Stadium in Dubai on March 26. 
During their stay in Dubai, the Arsenal players will also take part in warm weather training sessions to prepare for the final weeks of their football season. 
This is the first time in Emirates' history that the whole Arsenal squad visits their Dubai home, and the airline will be supporting the visit by connecting fans in the UAE with one of the greatest football clubs in the world.
Emirates Airline, whose partnership with Arsenal is one of the most recognisable and longstanding in the world of sport, last year announced a new sponsorship deal, granting the airline a five year extension to their shirt partnership with the club until the end of the 2023-2024 season. 
The sponsorship was the largest ever signed by a club and one of the biggest ever agreed in football. The Emirates and Arsenal partnership is also the longest running relationship in the Premier League, with the total duration of Emirates' shirt branding spanning 18 years. Arsenal's home also continues to be known as Emirates Stadium.
