American billionaire Stan Kroenke has big summer plans for two of his major sporting franchises the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and of course Arsenal football club.
In an attempt to raise global awareness of his two biggest clubs, the Gunners majority shareholder will make both teams train and play abroad during the summer.
For Arsenal it means that the summer training camp will be based in sunny Southern California, leading us to believe that any pre-season games will also take place in North America.
‘I mean the Rams are, they’re noteworthy over there because of Arsenal and all that plays,’ he said.
‘Arsenal will come back and they’re playing and training in Southern California this summer for the first time.
‘So that’s all good. That will raise the profile of the Rams and Arsenal in North America.’
