Good evening Singapore Gooners,
Sorry folks, my bad. Last Sunday’s match apparently was the FINAL pre-season friendly for The Arsenal. Our season starts this weekend *cough cough cough*.
Over 120 Gooners packed Molly last Sunday and we all left with heads shaking in disappointment. Probably disbelief too. SIGH!
Online coments, criticisms, suggestions all point to one simple conclusion: WE NEED TO BUY. SOMEBODY.
On a much more positive note, Arsenal Singapore will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary in 2017. Yes, the club was officially launched on 31 March 2007. We will slowly reveal the Exco’s plans to commemorate this upcoming season with some fun-filled, exciting and rewarding year of activities especially for you Gooners! These exclusive privileges and benefits are for MEMBERS ONLY! For now, here we go.
1. Arsenal Singapore Football Team
Arsenal SG will be taking part in the local BPL competition for season 2016/2017. We will be conducting a trial session on Saturday 20th August 2016 from 3-7 pm at Bishan Park Secondary School.
All Arsenal fans, aged 17 and above, are welcome for the trial. Players selected will have to sign up as Arsenal SG members of the club subsequently. So you can ask all your football kakis, who secretly love the Gunners, to sign up for the trials too.
Please wear proper football gears and bring any red top and any blue top (neutral kit and not representing any team) during the trial. If you have any queries, please email your football kaki Shai at Shai@arsenalsingapore.com
2. Lucky Draw Contest
To reward our members for your loyalty and passion for our club, we will start a lucky draw contest in August 2016. 2 winners will be picked and they stand to win Molly Roffey’s dining vouchers. 1st winner will win $100 and the 2nd winner will win $50 in vouchers. So how do you win? Read on.
– This contest is open to all active Arsenal Singapore members of the current season 2016/17 only so just make sure you have already renewed your membership. Exco team is not eligible for this contest.
– Members just need to submit their Molly dining receipts from Arsenal match nights to participate. Each receipt allows you 1 chance in the lucky draw. (For example, there are 3 Arsenal matches in August so you can submit 3 receipts and have 3 chances in the lucky draw).
– There is no minimum spending needed but receipts can only be from Arsenal match nights. Receipts must be timed from 2 hours before kickoff to 1 hour after final whistle.
– On the back of each receipt, write down your personal details in this format: Name, Membership number, Mobile number, Arsenal’s opponent.
(For example: John Tan, 702-07-xxx-x, 91234567, Arsenal v Liverpool).
– All August dining receipts must be personally submitted to any Exco member on any Arsenal match night in August. Last date for submission is 10th Sep 2016 (Southampton game). The draw will take place at half-time during the Southampton game on 10th Sep.
– All winners will be notified by us to collect your prize.
– All decisions made by the Exco team is final.
Excited much? If you have any questions, email Tony at Tony.Po@arsenalsingapore.com
3. Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2016
