Previous: Emirates meeting with Arsenal legend Bob Wilson

Monday 12th November 2018 - 18:30

Last year we arranged for a screening of the 89 film which was extremely successful and a chance for members to engage with fellow supporters while watching one of the greatest moments in Arsenal's history.

This year we've arranged for our members to come to the Emirates for an evening of raising money for the Arsenal Foundation and Willow Foundation while again being able to spend the evening over a few drinks and food with fellow Arsenal supporters.

They'll be a raffle for some signed Arsenal merchandise, and we'll have a Q&A with Arsenal legend Bob Wilson. We also expect to be joined by some senior Arsenal executives from the new management team.

The event will take place at the Emirates stadium on Monday 12 November from 7pm with doors opening at 6.30pm.

As this event is hosted at the club we require the names of of those attending so if you are able to attend please rsvp to [email protected] by Monday 5th November. 

All members are welcome to bring a guest as long as they are registered in advance by the deadline.

The meeting will focus on reviewing the Kroenke takeover including:

  • The legal advice the AST took on the possibility of legal challenge to the takeover - and why in the end action couldn't be progressed
  • What happens next to Arsenal's corporate structure and Boardroom membership
  • The implications for financial reporting and accountability at Arsenal

Other issues to be considered will be how the AST will operate following the forced purchase of our shares in Arsenal and our role going forward. We will table a draft paper on this at the meeting.

We will also be joined by Daily Telegraph journalist Jeremy Wilson who writes regularly about both football and governance issues at Arsenal.
