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.

The meeting will receive an update on the latest report and accounts published by Arsenal Holdings PLC (covering the financial year June 1 2010 to 31 May 2011) from Nigel Phillips. 

There will also be a discussion from special guest Andy Green. Andy is a Manchester United fan who scrutines the ownership and finances of the Old Trafford Club with an impartial and rigorous eye.

Among the subjects Andy will give his own observations on, and swap ideas with AST members, are the pros and cons of American ownership; why the Manchester United commercial operation is so strong and whether Financial Fair Play (FFP) is both likely to happen and a good thing if it does.
