Arsenal’s ground staff team hosted local school children for an educational day at Emirates Stadium in December.

Head groundsman Reece Watson gave a special presentation to the St Aloysuis College students on the importance of stadium design, pitch construction, matchday preparations and more.

The group then had the opportunity to walk out onto the pitch and to visit the underground heating system control room, before playing a game of football at the Arsenal Hub – Home of Arsenal in the Community.

The day was organised by Arsenal in the Community in collaboration with the Institute of Groundsmanship.
