The Gunners were scheduled to play a match in Ajuba, Nigeria on August 5th but the match has been cancelled due to complexities surrounding the organisation of the game.
Angus Kinnear, Arsenal marketing director: "Bringing a top-level club to an international market is always complicated and logistically challenging. With the proposed match in Nigeria planned for early August, we could not get comfortable on everything needed to satisfy our requirements, so we have reluctantly taken the decision to postpone the team's visit."
Arsenal’s tour of Asia at the end of the month which includes a game against Manchester City at the Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium on July 27th will go ahead as planned.
