NEW YORK (AP) - Arsenal will play Major League Soccer’s All-Stars on July 28 at San Jose, California.

The Gunners also said Thursday they will play Mexico’s Chivas of Guadalajara three days later at Carson, California, as part of the two-game U.S. tour.

Previous clubs to play the MLS All-Stars include Chelsea (2006 and ‘12), Everton (2009), Manchester United (2010 and ‘11), Roma (2013), Bayern Munich (2014) and Tottenham (2015).

Arsenal visited the New York Red Bulls in the summer of 2014. Manager Arsene Wenger said in a statement his team enjoys “tremendous support across America” and looks forward to “giving our U.S. fans the chance to see the team play live.”

San Jose also hosted the MLS All-Star Game in 2001.
