Arsenal Football Club will dedicate its Premier League fixture against Newcastle on Saturday, December 13, to the Arsenal Foundation which supports projects that transform the lives of young people in the UK and overseas.
The traditional annual fundraiser will once again see Arsène Wenger and the first-team squad donate a day’s wages to the cause and encourages supporters to get involved and join in a range of fundraising activities on the day.
Speaking about the forthcoming matchday, Wenger said: “We are always very proud to support the work of the Arsenal Foundation, helping young people to fulfil their potential and achieve great things in their lives. It’s a big tradition for us and we hope the supporters join in and give what they can, too.”
Since the Arsenal Foundation was launched in 2012, more than £1 million has been committed to fund projects reaching nearly 100,000 young people in the UK and overseas.
More details on how everybody can get involved in the matchday will be announced during the countdown to this special event.
