Pre-season

Arsenal started the 2015–16 season retaining Puma as their kit supplier and Emirates as their shirt sponsor. In July, they went on a preseason tour to Asia. During this, they participated in the Premier League Asia Trophy in Singapore along with fellow Premier League sides Everton and Stoke City as well as a Singapore Selection XI. Following this tournament, Arsenal will then play in their traditional yearly Emirates Cup tournament at the Emirates Stadium with Olympique Lyonnais, Villarreal and VfL Wolfsburg also participating. The match against Wolfsburg marks the return of former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, who made his first return to the Emirates Stadium with Wolfsburg.

UEFA Champions League

Main article: 2015-16 UEFA Champions League

Arsenal have qualified for the Group Stage of the 2015-16 UEFA Champions League due to finishing third in the 2014-15 Premier League. This means that Arsenal have qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the 18th consecutive year. Following changes to UEFA qualification rules, pot 1 for group stage draws would now consist of the Champions League holders and the champions of the seven highest ranked associations. Arsenal having previously been seeded in pot 1 for the Champions League draw as one of the top 8 ranked teams in UEFA, dropped into pot 2 for the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League group stage draw with the remainder of the highest seeded non-champions according to UEFA coefficient. The group stage draw was made on 27 August 2015 in Monaco, France. Arsenal are to face Bayern Munich, Olympiacos and Dinamo Zagreb.
