Arsenal confirm new Emirates wraparound artwork 0

Posted on November 15, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have confirmed their plans to have new wraparound artwork set up on the front side of the Emirates Stadium, following what they describe as “extensive consultations” with fans, as a part of the plans for the changes they intend to make in the coming period.

The removal of the existing artwork there has already begun, and there should be eight new pieces that are supposed to represent where the club is at this moment in time.

“Since April, we’ve enjoyed extensive consultations with a broad and diverse range of supporters on the new artwork that will adorn the Emirates Stadium exterior,” the statement reads.

Arsenal hit 300 at the Emirates 1

For the better part of the last 16 years, Arsenal have spent their home games at Emirates Stadium – the brand new, shiny ground that was built in order to replace the beloved Highbury.

While it was initially a slow transition, the Gunners soon built the stadium into a fortress, which many still believe rings true in the present day.

It’s no secret that Arsenal are going well so far this season and this past weekend, they proved that once again by absolutely tearing through Nottingham Forest with an emphatic 5-0 success.

‘Emirates Fortress’ Mikel Arteta’s main goal 0

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Mikel Arteta said one of the main goals he’s set himself as the Arsenal manager is to turn the Emirates into a proper fortress, into a place where no team will look forward to coming.

We obviously aren’t quite there yet, but it has to be said that the progress achieved since the Spaniard’s return to the club has been notable. Manchester City and Liverpool, the two teams currently battling it out for the Premier League title, are the only two teams to have won more points at their respective homes this season than Arsenal at the Emirates.

Arsenal have announced that they will be raising the prices of tickets, both season and single matchday ones, by 4% from 2022-23.

“After holding General Admission ticket prices flat for seven consecutive seasons, all season tickets and matchday tickets will be going up by 4% for season 2022-23,” the official statement reads.

Ticket prices haven’t been raised in this manner, for the whole Emirates Stadium, since 2014. The club say the prices of tickets for the Carabao Cup will remain £5 and £10 for concessions and £10 and £20 for adults, and they will continue to subsidise away Premier League tickets to £26.

Arsenal unveiled their new dressing room and tunnel area at the Emirates ahead of their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace back in October last year, and according to Miguel Delaney of the Independent, the stadium could be set for an external makeover in the near future.

The club are apparently considering the options in that respect, fearing that the current design, holding images of several icons of the past, could be considered out of date. Nothing has been set down as agreed as of yet, and a number of long, in-detail discussions are set to be held before any decision on the matter is made. The supporters are, naturally, included in this and expected to provide valuable input.

Several Arsenal fan groups are demanding that the banners spread across the stands of the Emirates Stadium, which cover the empty seats in the absence of supporters, are removed, following the club’s decision to be a part of the ‘European Super League’ project, according to The Telegraph. The call follows the same from Liverpool fans, who also want their banners removed from Anfield.

On This Day In 2006: Arsenal’s Emirates adventure begins 0

It’s hard to believe that Highbury is now just a distant memory for many Arsenal fans, with some not even having any real memory of the historic stadium. Nowadays the Emirates is the natural home for the Gunners, and that journey first began back in 2006.

On that day, Arsenal went toe to toe with Aston Villa in their first competitive game on the hallowed turf. Things didn’t go particularly well to start off with as Olof Mellberg gave Villa the lead, but late in the game, teenage sensation Theo Walcott set up Gilberto Silva with the latter firing home an important equaliser.

On This Day: Arsenal begin PL journey at Emirates 0

It’s always nice to take a trip down memory lane, especially as we live in such a cynical era for the beautiful game. Instead of drifting away from the past we should be embracing it and celebrating it, especially when it comes to Arsenal Football Club, as there’s a lot to be happy about from years gone by.

Today, we’re going to take a quick look at a pretty important game that went down 13 years ago today: Arsenal vs Aston Villa. These two historic English football clubs squared off back in 2006 at Emirates Stadium. The reason why that’s so important is because it was the first Premier League game that had been played at the brand new stadium, following the move over from Highbury.

A miserable night for Arsenal against Rennes 0

Posted on March 08, 2019 by David Nugent

Thursday night was a poor one for Arsenal, as the Gunners went own 3-1 to Rennes in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie. Unai Emery’s side were actually ahead in the first half until the 41st-minute dismissal of Greek centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

The incident changed the course of the game, as the French side equalised straight from Benjamin Bourigeaud resulting free-kick. From then on Arsenal seemed to capitulate.

Poor away form continues

Arsenal’s poor away form continued in France. The defeat means the Gunners have lost their last two away games in the Europa League. Unai Emery’s team have now also won just two of their last 11 matches on their travels in all competitions.

Rennes could be tricky opponents for Arsenal 0

When Arsenal drew French Ligue One outfit Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa League, I doubt many associated with the Gunners were quaking in their boots. However, they could prove to be tricky opponents for Arsenal.

Not to be complacent, but the French club are the sort of team that the Gunners should really be comfortably beating if they are to go far in the Europa League this season. Unai Emery’s side travels to France on Thursday night for the first leg of their last 16 tie, with the team from north London hoping to pick up a positive result to take into the second leg.
