London:

Arsenal announced on Thursday they would play a second match in Japan on their pre-season tour of Asia this year.

Arsene Wenger's side will take on Urawa Reds at Saitama Stadium in Saitama on July 26, four days after facing Nagoya Grampus in Toyota.

Arsenal are also scheduled to play the Indonesian national team in Jakarta on July 14.

"I am delighted to be returning to Japan, where I spent two very happy years before joining Arsenal," said Arsenal manager Wenger, who previously managed Nagoya Grampus.

"We are very happy to be visiting Saitama this summer after our trip to Nagoya. We know that Urawa Reds frequently have large crowds at their J-League matches and the Saitama City Cup has seen top European teams compete against the Urawa Reds in previous summers."
