The AST is pleased to be able to invite its members to an end of season Q&A with Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis. The club have amended the format this year and the event will include a reception and be attended by other members of the Arsenal senior executive team.

The event has also been expanded to include representatives of other Supporters' Groups.

The Q&A will take place on Wednesday, 6th June, 2012 at the Emirates commencing at 7.00 pm.

The AST has 100 places at the event and we will hold a ballot for places if we are over-subscribed. If you would like to attend please email info@arsenaltrust.org by Wednesday 9 May at the latest.

Please only apply for a place if you are certain you can attend so that we can ensure as many people who wish to go are able to do so.

Should we receive more applications than spaces are available, a random ballot will be held on Friday 11th May and successful members will be informed the following week.

We would also like you to submit questions you believe should be put to Ivan, both at the Q&A and subsequently should they not be covered in the hustings. Please submit any questions you have to info@arsenaltrust.org and we will collate them before publishing them on our website and sending them to Ivan Gazidis for review.
