Arsenal Fc: Emirates Stadium Tour
September 10, 2015
There are lots of opportunities to take pictures and the Emirates stadium tour is a perfect way to see behind the scenes at Arsenal FC.
There is a glass opening that leads out to the seats and the stadium itself. It was a wonderful experience to hear Charlie George talk about his Arsenal days and his thoughts on the current Arsenal players.
If you are going to see Arsenal play at home, why not combine the match with a tour of Emirates StadiumArsenal offers 2 tours. If you have never been to the Emirates it is one of the most beautiful stadiums I have ever seen. This is where both clubs directors meet for a meal prior to the game and the wall and cabinets are full of Arsenal trophies.
If you can manage it, take the legends tour. From the Arsenal dressing room we walked the Twenty five meters down the tunnel to the field. The legends tour is 35 pounds and 18 pounds for children less than 16.
Naturally we were not allowed to go on the pitch, but we did get to sit in the Arsenal bench where Arsene Wenger and the subs sit and take pictures.
From the directors box we walked down to the Arsenal dressing room where players jerseys were hanging up ready to be worn. The layout of the Arsenal dressing room is in a horseshoe, which is something that Arsenal boss designed as he believes that energy flows better in that design.
. I got goosebumps walking down this tunnel, and I cannot envision what it must feel like for the players, knowing that there are a 60,000 supporters waiting for you to emerge.
All in all a great experience and I strongly recommend the tour to any Arsenal fan. And the view from these seats, right around the half-way line is excellent.

And who can forget the Invincibles side of 2003-2004?
After buying my ticket the group met Charlie and headed up to the Directors Box. When I took the tour it wad lead by Charlie George, who scored that famous goal in the 1971 Cup Final at Wembley that helped Arsenal win the double. A general self-guided audio tour and one led by an Arsenal legend.
