Come on Arsenal!

19 Apr

Was taken by my friend Ric to watch my very first live football match at Emirates Stadium this week! Having never so much as watched an entire match the whole way through before, even on television it was quite a culture shock, but definitely a positive one! The match was Arsenal v Wigan at Arsenal’s home stadium near Holloway Road, and it was quite an amazing experience!

Even when you’re on the tube on the way there, the atmosphere in the air is electric. As this was quite an important Premier League match for Arsenal (I’ve been learning!) the stadium was nearly full, with a capacity of over 60,000 people that meant it was buzzing with excited football fans everywhere you looked!

When you walk into the stadium itself it’s a breathtaking sight. Seeing the huge pitch all lit up, with so many fans all roaring so passionately; it really made it an impressive experience. Emirates Stadium is the 3rd largest stadium in England and spreads over 17 acres of land!

Unfortunately at this particular match Arsenal lost (but we won’t dwell on that) and a couple of fans blamed my presence as a bad luck charm…… but I am officially an Arsenal fan now (apparently) and definitely look forward to going back there again!!

      Not yet, but I’m getting close to the top of the pile, been on the waiting list since 2008!! I’m a ‘red member’ which means I get access to tickets a month before a game, meaning I can get to most games but you also need to be a member to get a ticket for these games. But lots come on general sale anyway so when they do I shall take you next season 🙂 And we have to hang out soon!xx
