Fans' Survey

2012 Survey

  • Arsenal Fans Rally behind Arsene Wenger
  • Backing for the current business model alongside calls for Arsenal to review options for a sustainable equity injection into the Club and engagement with Red and White Holdings (Alisher Usmanov)
  • Overwhelming support for Stan Kroenke making it a priority to support the contribution supporter ownership can make to Arsenal through the Arsenal Fanshare scheme and explain in more detail his Vision for Arsenal Football Club

The Annual AST Survey is an important tool in forming the AST's policy positions and communicating to Arsenal the views of our members. The AST will once again forward the results of the survey to Ivan Gazidis who in the past has circulated them to the Club's Board. The AST is also meeting Ivan Gazidis on Friday when it will discuss the feedback from these results and the views of our members from Monday night's meeting.

This year the AST largely collected responses through an on-line survey tool and this saw a significant increase in the number of responses. Questionnaires were sent to 1067 AST members with 636 responses received representing 60% of the membership. The responses represent a diverse spread of Arsenal supporters including shareholders, overseas supporters, season ticket holders, red members, and Arsenal Fanshare members.

The AST Board will use the results to construct the policies it adopts as it continues to represent its membership.

2011 Survey

The survey was completed by 382 members of the AST, including shareholders, Arsenal Fanshare members, season ticket holders, red members and overseas supporters. It gives all AST members a direct opportunity to have their say on key issues at Arsenal, including the new ownership arrangements under Stan Kroenke, governance, football performance, ticketing and future strategy.

The survey is the major independent review of Arsenal fans undertaken. Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has welcomed the survey and circulated it for review within Arsenal and to the club's Board members.

The AST uses the survey responses to assist us in developing our policies and to ensure that all opinions from our members are taken into consideration. The survey covers the statistical response to the questions posed and all additional written feedback. It represents an authoritative portrait of the views of Arsenal supporters in summer 2011.

The AST has met with Arsenal executives to discuss the survey's results.
