The official Arsenal bot is here!
Giving you personalised and unique access to the club, our chatbot is available on Facebook Messenger, Slack, Skype and Telegram. And it’s all delivered through our bot personality - Robot Pires.
Whether you want the latest news, fixtures, results, videos, player stats or ticket information, Robot Pires can show you around, keep you up to date and answer your questions. He’ll even treat you to some of the best goals and memories from his career.
Casual supporters can stay informed with match updates and trending news deliveries, while superfans can dig deeper with play-by-play match commentary, reports and analysis, all messaged directly to you in real-time.
HOW TO GET THE ARSENAL BOT:
We’ve been working with industry-leading AI chat application platform GameOn to bring the Arsenal bot to life, so it responds to fans' natural language requests for news, scores, stats, videos and more.
Fans can personalise their experience by following their favourite topics and players, customising their match alerts, getting targeted news and updates, and allowing for real-time reactions and engagement, direct from the club.
"We’re delighted to be working with Arsenal," said Alex Beckman, founder and CEO of GameOn.
"As the way fans engage with teams evolves, there are more exciting and dynamic ways we can craft chatbots. Chatbots are a great way for clubs to evolve their platforms for speaking to fans, and we're excited to work with Arsenal to help bring shape to the category."
Tom Hines, senior content manager for Arsenal, said: “We're constantly looking at ways to bring fans content that makes their matchday experience even more entertaining.
"Working with GameOn to craft the bot is the next step in us developing a hub for fans that houses the answers to all of their questions – that feels intuitively part of the Arsenal voice and experience. Fans feel a personal connection to Arsenal, and AI is more important than ever for us to give fans a personalised experience."
