Arsenal FC is a very special football club. Steeped in tradition and producing a quality of football that few clubs can even aspire to, the club has gone from strength to strength in recent generations, more recently having settled into one of the truly great sporting arenas in the world – The Emirates Stadium.
The stadium was built with class and comfort at the forefront of the design, offering stunning pitch views and state of the art facilities fans of other clubs can only dream of.
It is, for this reason, there has been a significant growth in the amount of interest in Arsenal hospitality and first-class match day experiences whereby Gunners can make their match day a day to truly remember; enjoying a complete before and after experience as well as the in-match-play.
Whilst the stadium might be one of the newer arenas in the Premier League, true football fans know that there is no substitute for history and tradition, something that was not lost by Arsenal when moving to the Emirates.
The stadium pays homage to the club’s dense history at every turn and provides fans with a real sense of heritage, be it through statues of Denis Bergkamp, Herbert Chapman and Thierry Henry outside the ground, or through the spine-tingling images of other club legends emblazoned throughout the stadium. The Emirates is much more than your run-of-the-mill millennial sports arena.
Arsenal are a club renowned throughout the world for their exhilarating brand of attractive football. Putting pace, slick passing, creativity and flair at the forefront of everything they do, watching an Arsenal attack is a joy to behold for any sports fan, let alone an ardent Gooner.
Seeing the Arsenal machine in action live really gives the fan a different perspective on what goes into making the side tick – and the experience of watching the North Bank rising to its feet as Theo Walcott approaches the penalty area is one that has hairs standing on your neck forever.
Whilst other clubs go about their business in a more brazen fashion, Arsene Wenger has quietly assembled a squad capable of improving on their second-place finish last season.
In Swiss maestro Granit Xhaka, he has signed a player that has provided the grit and determination his side have so badly needed to complement a wealth of attacking options that make Arsenal one of the great sides to watch in the history of football. Whilst those around them concern themselves with settling players into the rigors of English football, Wenger’s men had a good year.
Indeed, the Premier League in general has never had such a wealth of talent throughout its ranks, and with Arsene Wenger having been joined by the likes of Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho in recent months, not to mention the arrival of big name players such as Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, this season promises to be the most exciting in years.
What are your hopes for Arenal this year?
