If you have felt the same Arsenal withdrawals as we did this week, fret not.

Molly Roffeys @ Dorsett Residences is screening the Emirates Cup this weekend! So head on down to catch our boys in more pre-season action. Apparently we will be sending the robotic versions of our players onto the pitch while the actual players control them from the sidelines, sounds fun.

P.S We will NOT be doing membership applications or renewals this weekend.

A Brief Guide to Singapore

deal-singapore_2659071b

Dear Gooners,

The month of July is finally here, and that means Arsenal will be arriving in Singapore for the Barclays Asia Trophy very soon! For those of you who will be coming over to Singapore to watch The Arsenal, we have prepared a short but useful guide with information related to getting around our sunny (read: hot and humid) island, and some places you can explore when you are not stalk…erm…following the Arsenal team.

As this year is also Singapore’s 50th birthday, there are various events taking place around the island showcasing our history and celebrating the progress we have made since our independence. Hence, it is a good chance for visitors to learn more about us while having fun at the same time. Do check out some of the ongoing events if you are looking for things to do in between match days. And lastly, but no less important than watching Arsenal, do sample some of Singapore’s gastronomical delights so you have energy to cheer on the team!

The links below will provide a comprehensive guide on the aforementioned topics; accompanied by a short write-up on some of the more important (Arsenal-related) places:

  1. Sports Hub – the place where all the action will take place. Spanking new stadium opened in June 2014, with state of the art facilities that make it a fully integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub. Located right next to the Stadium MRT station (CC6), there is a shopping mall beside the stadium that offers a fine variety of food and shopping, perfect for having a meal before proceeding to watch the matches. More information on getting there can be found in these links:

  1. Molly Roffey’s (Bras Basah branch) – the home of the Official Arsenal Singapore Supporters Club, where passionate Gooners congregate on every weekend match night to cheer on the Gunners! Do drop by for a visit if time permits, and look at how we have done up the place SG Gooners call “Home”. The pub is located right outside the Bras Basah MRT station (CC2)

  1. Places of attraction – Singapore may be tiny, but there is no shortage of places of interests for visitors who wish to explore the island. Some of these places will be holding special events in celebration of SG50, so do look out for these when you are planning your itinerary. The links below provide information on some of the most popular attractions that are worth spending time at:

  1. Food! Glorious Food! – A visit to Singapore is never complete nor satisfying if you do not try out most, if not all, of our famous local food. As Singapore is a multi-racial and multicultural country, our food is reflective of that, with a smorgasbord of cuisine that caters to different tastes and preferences. Below are some of the places where you can feast to your heart’s content, be it local fare or more refined dining:

A message from our President

Welcome to the brand new website of Arsenal Singapore!

You’ve come to the right place if you are a Gooner living in the Lion City or visiting and looking to join fellow Gooners to catch a game or two.

It was just over a month ago when we lifted our 12th FA Cup and here we are looking forward to pre-season and the promise of some shiny new signings a la Petr Cech!

July’s a massive month for all of us especially in Singapore as we will be welcoming the mighty Arsenal to our shores for the Barclays Asia Trophy.  It’s been 24 long years since the Gunners last visited and to say we are very excited to see them here is an understatement.

On behalf of everyone in the committee, we would like to extend a warm welcome to every Arsenal fan travelling to Singapore this month. It’s a great pleasure to be hosting you and do get in touch should you require anything during your stay here.

The home of Arsenal Singapore – Molly Roffey’s at both Bras Basah and Dorsett – will be offering every Gooner, as long as you walk in with an Arsenal shirt on (any shirt as long as it has something Arsenal on it) 10% off all food and beverages outside of Happy Hours from 12th to 19th July!

If you need a place for your pre-match and post-match drinks, you know the place to go!

See you at the Barclays Asia Trophy!
