    Well if you get any less of a crowd, the players will end up getting their own ball back from the terraces.

    PS - I spell it that way to make it easier for you English to understand. I'm sort of a care worker in that respect........

Arsenal and Rangers to face Southampton in Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup

Arsenal and Rangers set for Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup

First published in Saints News

SAINTS have confirmed they will face Arsenal and Glasgow Rangers in this season's Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup.

The annual pre-season tournament will take place at St Mary's on July 14 - the same date as the Olympic torch relay is due to pass through the stadium.

Arsenal's attendance, as previously exclusively revealed by the Daily Echo, is part of the deal that saw Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain move to the Emirates last summer.

The tournament sees the three teams compete against each other in a series of round-robin 45-minute matches, with ties decided by spot kicks.

Three points are awarded for a win, two for a victory on penalties and one for defeat in a shoot-out.

The first match, between Saints and Rangers, will kick-off at 5.15pm, with the Olympic torch due in the stadium at 6.20pm.

Arsenal v Rangers will follow at 6.45pm, with Saints and Arsenal clashing in the final fixture, at 8pm.
