Good evening Gooners,

The only big news this week is that the 10th Anniverary Party was a grand success! Lauren and 200 other guests had a fabulous time last Saturday. We had a sumptuous 8-course dinner, free flow of beer and wine, 50 lucky draw prizes and 1 much-loved Legend present that night. It was simply quite.. Legendary!

Lauren shared with the Exco team that he was surprised and amazed by the support and love shown throughout his quick 3D/2N “vacay” here. Did you know he likes spicy food? His favourite local dishes included laksa, satay, chilli crab, tiger prawns, dim sum and seafood fried rice! Yes, he whacked all those dishes. And he likes Tiger Beer! LOL

Lauren even held a signing session where members took selfies, wefies and other unmentionables that night. All in all, EVERYONE HAD A JOLLY GOOD TIME! It was fabulous to see Arsenal Singapore growing up and celebrating our 10th birthday with our die-hard members. Simply tremendous…. ahem!

Before flying back to Spain, Lauren mentioned to me that he would like to come back to Singapore again. So watch out for this space if that happens…..

We couldn’t have pulled off this amazing event without the support of all our members and our sponsors: Emirates, Weston Corp, PUMA, Modesto’s, FIVE Square and Frasers Hospitality.

For those members who couldn’t attend, check out the media coverage on our FB page and at these links below too.

Yes folks, it’s time again to continue renewing your membership. Even after 10 years, we have kept it at an affordable $30 for adults and $15 for under-18s. Two surprises this season upon renewal:

  • you will notice an all-new design of the membership card

April will be a yuuuuge month for us – 6 EPL matches and 1 FA Cup semi-final. Is that intense or what? We kick-off April with The Arsenal playing Citeh at home. There’s all to play for and Champions League qualification to aim for, eh?

I’ll see you there, Gooners!

Good morning Gooners,

With that emphatic 5-0 victory, The Arsenal marches on to our umpteenth FA Cup semi-final under Prof Wenger. The man has a good record in the FA Cup and Wembley, there’s no denying that. Do we fancy our chances against Citeh? You bet we definitely do!! Let’s get behind the team for the semis. #SheWoreAYellowRibbon

Now for some exciting news… We are 10 days away from our 10th Anniversary Party and it is completely SOLD OUT!!!

Yes folks, we have sold out all 200 seats. The Exco team wish to thank our members for your support and putting your trust in us. It’s gonna be an awesome night!

We will not be accepting any walk-ins at the party itself. This is a private event and we will definitely not allow members of public to attend either. This is THE MOST EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE PARTY IN 2017! #ArsenalSG10

We have so many prizes to give away that we have lost count… and not forgetting the Top prize of a return air ticket to London sponsored by Emirates! Who is feeling lucky?

Oh, there’s the appearance of Arsenal Legend and Invincible, LAUREN! Have you sent us your questions for Lauren yet? We will have a Q&A session with Lauren at the party. Send your questions to Umarani at

Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com

PARTY DRESS CODE

Just a reminder to come dressed in smart casual attire.

Wear any Arsenal jersey/top so long as it has any one colour – red, white, yellow or blue.

Please remind your partners/guests not to wear other football club jerseys/attire, naturally.

If you have not received your e-invite which was sent out last week, please email to Umarani at Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com

We’re back to Premier League action this Saturday and we play The Baggies away. We need to mount a good challenge for the remaining games and get us back as close to Chelski as possible.  It’s pretty tight up there and our rivals are bound to lose points in the next 2 months, trust me.

Come down to FIVE Square for the early kick-off. All food stalls will be open and we have new bar bites available from 6pm onwards as well.

Members can also collect your membership cards and polo shirts if you have not already done so.

I’ll see you there. Sing loud and proud, Gooners!

West Brom v The Arsenal, 8.30PM kick-off, Saturday 18th March.

We are The Arsenal.

Good evening Gooners,

It was an utterly disappointing result this morning and if not for the @!&%!$#! tragic Greek performance by the ref and his team of incompetent officials, who knows what might have truly happened?

What I can say is that the first half against zee Germans was one of our best performances this season. One can only hope that we can build on that from now till end of the season.

While the team is getting some bad press recently, unwarranted or not, what we do not like to see is fans turning on each other and the club. We are a Gooner family and victory only comes through harmony.

Here are your Arsenal Singapore updates this week.

1. Arsenal SG 10th Anniversary Celebration

As we edge closer to our Big Bash on Saturday 25th March, we have more members signing up in the past few days.  There are only 18 seats available!

We have exclusive lucky draw prizes to win at the party, including the Top prize of a return air ticket to London sponsored by Emirates!

Lauren is all set to fly to Singapore as our VIP. Yes, that Arsenal Legend and Invincible, LAUREN! This will be our BIGGEST bash ever!! It will be a Goonerific night of sumptuous food, glorious games, entertainment and fantastic prizes!

With 2 more weeks to go, members can still register for the party. You can now make payment online as well if you can’t make it down to FIVE Square on match nights.

Send an email to both Umarani (Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com) and Tony (Tony.Po@arsenalsingapore.com). You also need to submit this registration form which you can download here, http://tinyurl.com/asc10anni

$70 for Arsenal SG members
$90 for non-members

The actual value is over $100 per person!

You can also make payment at FIVE Square this Saturday before Lincoln City game. Look for Tony from Midnight-1am and pay exact cash.

2. Arsenal Match Tickets

Our final home match for this season is coming up. Send your ticket application to Umarani at tickets@arsenalsingapore.com

Everton
Match Date: May 21st, 2017
Ticket Deadline: Mar 12th, 2017

So our best bet for silverware is the FA Cup and onto this Saturday, we play at home to giant-killers Lincoln City. Maybe it’s time to shake things up in our play and we may see Lucas, Ramsey, Welbeck getting some action alongside The Jeff or Maitland-Niles. If we do this right, a Wembley semi-final awaits and this might just please the fans temporarily. Yes, we are 90 mins away from Wembley.

Meanwhile, remember to sign up for the 10th Anniversary Party. It’s not everyday that we have a chance to have an Arsenal Invincible and Legend come to Singapore and be part of our club’s legacy.

Have you sent us your questions for Lauren yet? We will have a Q&A session with Lauren at the party. Send your questions to Umarani at Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com

FA Cup Quarter-Final: The Arsenal v Lincoln City, 1.30AM kick-off, Sunday 12th March.

We are The Arsenal.
