On Sunday, September 8, the Gunners on the Road trailer will be finishing off this summer’s tour in Islington. The event is free for all to attend and runs from midday - 5.-00pm. The roadshow’s position is on Caledonian Road, opposite Story Street.
Throughout the summer, loads of fans have joined us to get a sneak preview of life behind the scenes at Arsenal. The virtual tour on the trailer starts at the Arsenal Training Centre, beginning with an introduction to Arsenal's coaching staff via video message. There will be the chance to sample some of the players' training methods and visitors can test their reaction speeds against one another on the two-player batak wall, a hi-tech gym machine used by the team to improve reflexes.
There will also be an opportunity for participants to check their footballing stats against those of the Arsenal first-team at the replica ‘Colney' training ground. The Emirates Stadium experience will give youngsters access to a virtual players' dressing room and an insight into the players' matchday preparations.
Fans will then be given the chance to sample the adrenaline rush of heading down the players' tunnel to the sound of an Emirates crowd, before being led out onto an astro-turf football pitch where great prizes can be won by taking part in a penalty shootout. There will also be a speed test machine, a throwing challenge and a test to show of your dribbling skills!
We hope to see you there!Copyright 2013 The Arsenal Football Club plc. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.arsenal.com as the source 6 Sep 2013
