The International Champions Cup (ICC) returns to Charlotte as Arsenal takes on ACF Fiorentina at Bank of America Stadium. ACF Fiorentina are a late addition to the tournament, replacing AS Roma, who had to withdraw from the competition because of their UEFA Europa League qualification obligations.
ACF Fiorentina have some competitive history against this year’s Europa League finalist Arsenal. The two clubs met in the group stage of the 1999/00 Champions League. Drawn in Group B together with Barcelona and Swedish side AIK Solna, Fiorentina were held 0-0 by Arsenal on Matchday 1.
