On Sunday, December 21, the largest Junior Gunners event to date took place at Emirates Stadium for the Liverpool v Arsenal match.
Three hundred and fifty JGs won the chance to attend the event with friends and family – giving them the perfect day out pre-Christmas so they could all get in the festive spirit!
In total, 1,500 fans spent the day with the Junior Gunners team and club partner Indesit in the Club Level suites with a range of activities.
JGs of all ages had something to do. There was a massive screening of the match against Liverpool, an arts & crafts area, soft play for the youngest, a funny Christmas pantomime, ride on reindeers and even a reindeer rodeo to ensure the JGs were kept busy until kick-off.
We also had a stadium first with the Indesit Ice Rink, where both JGs and adults could test out their ice skating skills. The Christmas grotto was also there, with Father Christmas and his helpers on hand to give out Indesit and Arsenal goodie bags to all the JGs present.
Young Gunners could also test their football skills in the Indesit Urban football room – and ask Arsenal Legend Nigel Winterburn some great questions in the pre-match Q&A.
On top of all of this, Gunnersaurus was also there to say hello to everyone and we had loads of competitions running on the day.
