Arsenal confirmed for Amsterdam Tournament

Arsenal will defend the trophy they won at last year's Amsterdam Tournament when they return to the Dutch capital this summer.

Arsène Wenger's side beat Lazio and Ajax on their last visit to Amsterdam and will face the Dutch giants again on Friday, August 8 before playing Sevilla on Saturday, August 9. Inter Milan, with new manager Jose Mourinho, complete this year's quartet of teams.

David Broomhall, chief executive of tournament organisers The International Event Partnership, confirmed the line-up on Friday. He said: "This year will be one of the strongest ever, with the current holders Arsenal, three times Serie A Champions Inter, and 2006 and 2007 UEFA Cup champions Sevilla, going up against an Ajax side under the new guidance of Dutch legend, Marco van Basten."

The points system in place will be identical to the one used at Arsenal's Emirates Cup. A point will be awarded for each goal scored, making it possible for a team which loses its first game to still win the tournament.
