This will be the latest in a series of friendlies for Arsenal, interspersed with their UEFA Champions League fixtures, ahead of the inaugural FA Super League season next spring
The Gunners will bring their full first team squad to Colchester's Hawthorns home, just days ahead of a Champions League trip to Madrid's Rayo Vallecano.
