Since 2007 The Emirates Cup has become an annual mainstay in the football pre-season calendar. Hosted by English Premier League giants Arsenal, the tournament takes place at the club's home ground, the Emirates Stadium. Consisting of the hosts and three other teams by special invitation, each club plays two matche each, with three points awarded for a win, one for a draw and a point for every goal scored. Since 2009, if teams are tied on points, goal difference and goals scored, they are ranked by the total number of shots on target. The current holders are the hosts themselves, having been victorious three out of the four years since the competition's inception, losing out in 2008 to Hamburg.
The 2011 Emirates Cup is set to feature Argentinian side Boca Juniors, France's Paris Saint-Germain and the USA's New York Red Bulls, on 30-31 July. The participation of the Red Bulls means former Gunners legend and record goal scorer, Thierry Henry could play against his former club. The eventual winners will get their hands on the coveted sterling silver cup, produced exclusively by Thomas Fattorini, whose family has produced trophies for English football since 1827. The base, lip and handles of the trophy mirror the iconic asymmetrical flowing lines of the stadium's rooftop.
