As part of a season full of exclusive ticket competitions we welcomed lucky winner Kieran to our match against Swansea on Saturday.
Kieran won two tickets to the game by revealing his favourite memory as an Arsenal fan and decided to bring his mum Gerry (who is also an avid Gunner) along to see a 1-0 win against a battling Swansea side.
Kieran's favourite memory was when he got to visit Emirates Stadium and see his favourite team play for the very first time against Sunderland as a seven-year-old. He was treated to the trip by his Godfather, ironically a Spurs season ticket holder, so you can understand why it was such an unforgettable moment for him. Looking back on that day, Kieran commented: "We both had a great day and Arsenal won. It was nice to see that Arsenal and Spurs fans can enjoy football together, even if they are watching their least favourite team!"
As part of his prize Kieran even got to choose his favourite song, Jennifer Lopez's ‘On The Floor', to be played before the game as the teams warmed up. And, he enjoyed himself so much that he even wrote a match report which you can read by entering our Fanzone.
On the day, Kieran just couldn't hide his excitement as he told us: "I had a fantastic day at Emirates Stadium. Having my photo taken with Gunnersaurus on the pitch was amazing, especially walking through the tunnel! It was great to be so near the pitch and I wanted to go and play on it! Our seats were really good and I even heard my name on the loudspeaker and saw it on the big screen - I was famous! It is so different to watch a match at the stadium instead of on television as the noise and cheering is exciting. I felt very special and have great memories of my day, especially as Arsenal won!"
If you missed out this time don't worry because our next brilliant ticket competition is now open and this time you can win two tickets to our next home Premier League match against Bolton Wanderers.
