Arsenal’s Barclays Premier League fixture with Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, February 4 at Emirates Stadium will now kick-off at 1pm.

The match, originally scheduled for 3pm, has been brought forward by two hours due to an upgrade of the Victoria Line, which mean there will be NO SERVICE ON THE ENTIRE VICTORIA LINE over the weekend of Saturday, February 4 and 5.

A 1pm kick-off will provide supporters with the opportunity to remain behind at Emirates Stadium after the final whistle for specially arranged Club activities, with the objective of relieving pressure on local transport services immediately after the game.
