Arsenal Manager Arsène Wenger’s office is being opened up to visitors for the first time on the Emirates Stadium tour.
Fans will be able to get a glimpse of the boss’s inner sanctum where he discusses matches and meets the great names of football past and present.
Emirates Stadium visitors will be able to watch a video with the manager talking about his matchday routine and see what he keeps in his office, including his infamous PUMA benchcoat.
The opening of the manager’s stadium office coincides with the close season*, and is a timely addition to the tour route as essential pitch reconstruction work begins to get it ready for next season.
The tour already gives supporters access to areas normally reserved for players and officials, including the home and away changing rooms, players’ tunnel and more.
Arsenal’s Head of Marketing, Charles Allen, said: “Arsène Wenger’s office has never before been opened to our fans and this, combined with everything else supporters can see, will provide an amazing behind-the-scenes experience for all lovers of football.”
*The manager’s office is open during the summer months, through to Friday 12th August 2016.
The self-guided stadium tour is available in nine languages: English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin and Japanese.
Tours run from 9.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday (last entry 5pm) and 10am to 4pm Sunday (last entry 3pm). Self-guided tour passes are priced £10 for under-16s and £20 for adults including access to the Arsenal Museum. Family entry for two adults and two under-16s is £50.
