Joshua Webley has been elected to the Fans' Forum as the Silver Members Representative.
The 26-year-old from Bedford has been a member for over 15 years, and regularly attends home and away matches.
As part of his manifesto, he hopes to improve rewards and ticket availability for Silver Members, improve access for away tickets, access better seats for games at Emirates Stadium as well as look at the food and beverage options on a matchday.
He said: “The club has done a great job through Arsenal Rewards this year with the addition of attendance challenges for trophies for season ticket holders, but this would be a useful engagement tool for Silver Members.
“As a Silver Member, you can go to countless home games but feel disheartened knowing the opportunity for final tickets or away games isn’t there. A point scheme that rewards Silver Members’ continued support that offers away game ballots, cup ballots or home priority in a chosen block or seat would work well.
“With the extension of the Junior Gunners enclosure and a number of season ticket holders, it has become quite difficult for a large number of Silvers to be in the lower tier this season. The atmosphere could significantly benefit from a ‘Silver only block’ to give our set of supporters a pitchside experience that is also very affordable in comparison to the cost of upper-tier tickets per game.”
