[DATEBOOK] Almost a quarter century after its last appearance in the United States, Arsenal will face MLS's New York Red Bulls on July 26 at Red Bull Arena. The match will pit current New York captain Thierry Henry against the club for which he scored a record 226 goals in all competitions.

The game will be Arsenal's only match on its U.S. visit. The Gunners' last game in the United States was against Independiente of Argentina in Miami in August 1989.

The Red Bulls and Arsenal have met once before, playing to a 1-1 draw at the 2011 Emirates Cup.

“It goes without saying that hosting Arsenal at Red Bull Arena will be a special moment for me both on a professional and personal level," Henry said in a statement. "As I have said before, the club is in my heart and this will be another terrific chapter in my relationship with Arsenal Football Club. Along with my teammates, I am excited to host Arsenal in New York -- one of the greatest cities in the world -- and hope that Red Bulls and Arsenal fans will be able to enjoy the match."

This is Henry's last season under contract to the Red Bulls.

    Robert, currently the tickets are only available if you buy a season ticket. You have to wait few weeks before they offer what's left to the general public. The decision to play at the Red Bull Arena is completely wrong. Arsenal has a huge following in the USA. This big game should be played at a much bigger stadium. May be Arsenal will plan other games on a later date.

    It has constantly amazed me that Stan Kronke, majority owner of both Arsenal and the Colorado Rapids, has never been able to arrange a visit to Denver by the Gunners. I agree with Gus Keri, playing at the 25,000-seat Red Bull Arena makes no sense when the more than 80,000-seat MetLife Stadium could host a greater spectacle and more fans. It's no different than the Galaxy opting to host Real Madrid at StubHub! Center instead of the Rose Bowl or Coliseum, I guess it's more important to have that home-field advantage, it really came in handy for LA against Real!!!
