Our matchday programme on Sunday has a strong focus on No More Red, the joint initiative between Arsenal and adidas to keep young people safe from knife crime.
The programme cover has been created by Verona, a fantastic young artist whose talents were spotted during her time as an Arsenal in the Community participant. Verona reveals the inspiration behind the artwork in the programme and her artistic mentors.

Our Official Voice is the one and only Ian Wright, who is one of the leading campaigners for No More Red. Wrighty tells us why projects such as this must be a success.
Throughout the programme we also highlight the incredible work done by Arsenal in the Community to create safe spaces for those for whom being involved in knife crime is real and we also hear from Tanisha, whose cousin was killed in a knife attack and subsequently founded the Love and Loss charity, which is supported by the Arsenal Foundation.
Elsewhere in the programme, hear exclusively from Alexandre Lacazette, who talks about his love of playing in local derbies and the energy he draws from the fans and our Young Gun is Ryan Alebiosu who’s making great strides in the Academy – so much so that he was part of the matchday squad against Liverpool on Thursday night.
