Arsenal will look to take advantage of the World Cup break by revamping the outlook of the Emirates stadium with the club firmly challenging for the Premier League table and looking to return Champions League football back to north London.
The club confirmed they had launched a new artwork at the front of the Emirates stadium as they look to give fans a new experience by the time they return to the stadium after the World Cup. The club confirmed they had made consultation with the supporters about the changes and were looking to get the work done as soon as possible.
The artwork at the front of the stadium is the first of the new things being done as that has not been touched since the stadium was opened back in 2006. The new artwork will have club legends like Thierry Henry, Tony Adams, Cliff Bastin and the club’s crest at the heart of the design.
Arsenal have had a storming start to the season, more than many would have envisaged and Mikel Arteta has been able to generate an atmosphere where every player is fighting for each other and it will be interesting to see if they can continue their strong start when the World Cup is over and club football returns.
A club statement read: “Since April, we’ve enjoyed extensive consultations with a broad and diverse range of supporters on the new artwork that will adorn the Emirates Stadium exterior.
“We started with a blank piece of paper and the sole intention of working with our community to create art that would express what Arsenal means in 2023.
“With the commitment, support and input of the Arsenal family, we’re now very close to finalising eight pieces of art that are true to who we are, what we are, and who we represent as a club.
“We’re excited to launch the new artwork in January and many supporters may have noticed that, as the World Cup brings a break in our men’s fixtures, we’ve already started to remove the existing art.
“While this means the stadium will be ‘bare’ for a few weeks, we hope you’ll agree it will be worth the wait! We look forward to sharing more details soon.”
