The Master

Dennis Bergkamp's testimonial match will be the first game played at Arsenal's new Emirates Stadium.

Bergkamp, 36, is looking forward to the star-studded fixture which is provisionally scheduled for 22 July.

The Dutchman has played more than 400 times for the Premiership side since arriving in 1995.

"It will be an emotional day for me as I have spent the last 11 years here, playing some of the best football of my career," he said.

"What will make the occasion extra special is not only will it be the first-ever match at Emirates Stadium, it will be an opportunity to see Arsenal players past and present on the pitch at the same time."
