Good afternoon Singapore Gooners,

We are 17 days away from EPL kick-off. These are nervous times. Le Boss has signed 3 players but we are still missing that elusive “world-class” striker, aren’t we?

The whole world knows we need THAT ONE PLAYER and I suppose we are gonna be held ransom for it. Pay Up or Shut Up, I suppose?

Here are some latest developments from us.

1. All slots for PUMA Night Run on Saturday 27 August have been taken up. Thank you for your interest and good luck to all runners!

2. 40 tickets each for both matches to Arsenal Sydney 2017 tour were purchased last week for our local Gooners. We managed to secure Cat D tickets so we will refund the difference with a cheque issued in your name. Cheques can be collected from Connie/Tony on match nights at Molly Roffey’s, starting 14th August (Liverpool game).

Hello Singapore Gooners,

Last Saturday, we held our Arsenal 5K run at the National Stadium. We had 46 Gooners who ran the distance. In total 56 Gooners donated to a great cause, The Arsenal Foundation. We’ve raised $2,810 SGD so far.

We will continue to sell the Arsenal 5K Run blue caps on match nights in August and 100% of all proceeds will be donated to this cause. The Club will tally the final amount in August 2016.

All lucky draw prizes given away were kindly sponsored by PUMA Singapore. Prizes included towels, shoe bags, replica baby kits and even Arsenal jerseys. Everyone went home smiling for sure!

You can view the pictures and video montage on our Facebook page.

Arsenal Sydney Tour Update

Good evening Gooners,

arsesydney

This is a final reminder that we must receive your full payment of match tickets by tomorrow 2359hrs (Sunday 17th July).

1. Match Info
Arsenal v Sydney FC on Thursday 13th July 2017
Arsenal v Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday 15th July 2017

Tickets will officially go on sale on Tue 19th July 2016 in Australia. Arsenal Singapore is planning to make bulk ticket purchase for our members who are keen to go. Here’s the seating map for your easy reference:
http://www.arsenalinsydney.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Seating-Map.pdf
2. Ticket Pricing (take note all pricing is in Australian dollars)

For ease of booking, we will not allow requests for other categories such as Concession, Junior or Family tickets. We seek your understanding on this.

Our 1st option is for Category D – $59 AUD per match, per person (Adult ticket).
Our 2nd option is for Category C – $89.5 AUD per match, per person (Adult ticket).

If for some reason we are unable to book Cat D tix, we will proceed to our 2nd option.

We will only accept bookings for 2-day pass match tickets. So this means you have to purchase tickets for both matches. No single-match ticket booking is allowed. Arsenal Singapore will also include a $10 SGD admin charge to process all bookings, per member.

So for example, 2 tickets for Cat D total $140SGD per person
($59 AUD x 2 tickets x 1.1 exchange rate = $130 SGD + 10 SGD admin).

2 tickets for Cat C total $207SGD per person
($89.5 AUD x 2 tickets x 1.1 exchange rate = $197 SGD + 10 SGD admin).

In the interest of time and convenience for the Exco to book these tickets, we would request members to make full payment for Cat C tickets.
We will still attempt to book Cat D tickets as our 1st choice. So by making payment to us first, you will authorize us to choose Cat C or D tickets. Rest assured, all Singapore Gooners will sit together. That’s our priority as this will truly enhance the match experience.

Each member is only allowed to purchase tickets for 3 persons maximum (him/herself and 2 other member/non-member). The usual fee of $10 per person will be imposed.

We will refund all members the difference in amount should Arsenal Singapore purchase Cat D tickets eventually. Refunds will be issued via cheque.
3. Payment
Send an email to Umarani at umarani@arsenalsingapore.com by Sunday 17th July 2016. (Yes, that’s Tomorrow!).

Indicate the following:
a) Your name and membership number
b) No. of match tickets needed

Umarani will then email you with our i-banking account details. Due to the short time frame, we will only accept online transfers or ATM deposit (UOB Bank). If you wish to deposit cheque, you have to ensure that the cheque is cleared before Sunday.

If you have more questions, please email to Umarani as well. Please read the above information carefully before sending us emails. We seek your cooperation on this.

4. Additional info for Sydney tour
a) Members are to apply for Australia visa on their own next year (you can do it online easily).

b) Members are to book their own flight tickets to Sydney. You have plenty of choices for budget airlines or full-cost ones.

c) We are in talks with a 4-star hotel in Downtown Sydney. Members can book a room at AUD $125 NETT per night, twin sharing, standard room, inclusive of breakfast for 2 pax.

If you just want match tickets from Arsenal Singapore, that is fine with us. Hotel accom is really optional and you can choose to stay elsewhere if you like.

That’s it, folks! Plenty of info to digest. Lots to think about. The clock is ticking!

Once again, ticket payment must be received by this Sunday 17th July 2016 (tomorrow, 2359hrs).
Arsenal, over land and sea, in Sydney!
