Win two tickets to watch Arsenal v Swansea with club legend Ray Parlour on Monday, May 11.
Cooper Tire Europe, official tyre of Arsenal Football Club, have delved into the fascinating realm of pre-match rituals, asking players and fans how they get ready.
In Cooper’s entertaining fan film, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Welbeck and Laurent Koscielny share their pre-match rituals.
Alex revealed that he always hops on to the pitch and puts his left shin pad and boot on before his right. “I don’t know why, but I’ve just always done that,” he said.
Danny doesn’t really have a superstition but, like many players, listens to music before a game to get in the zone. Laurent psyches himself up by slapping his own face with both hands!
To encourage more fans across Europe to share their pre-match rituals, Cooper is running a #MatchReady competition on Twitter.
To be in with a chance to win two tickets to enjoy a pre-match dinner and watch Arsenal v Swansea with Parlour on 11 May follow @CooperTireEU and share your ritual using #MatchReady.
The #MatchReady competition closes on Monday, April 27 at 5.00pm BST
