Arsenal: Emirates Stadium Guide
The Emirates Stadium is one of the largest stadiums in England, behind Wembley and Old Trafford. It is viewed as the benchmark for modern football stadia with its bowl design, meaning ‘bad seats’ are difficult to come by when purchasing your Arsenal tickets.
The four stands have inherited the same names as those from their previous stadium, Highbury: North Bank, East Stand, Clock End and West Stand. Customers can choose the stand of their choice when buying Arsenal football tickets and a trip to The Emirates is certainly one not to miss!
Its four-tiered structure consists of a large and shallow lower tier which is set back from the playing surface. The small second-tier known as the ‘Club Tier’ has only eight rows and houses numerous hospitality lounges. The third tier is even smaller and consists entirely of 150 Executive Boxes around the stadium. The fourth tier is the upper tier and offers stunning views across The Emirates which are completely unrestricted.
The stadium is just as impressive on the outside. On matchday why not pay a visit to the statues dedicated to managers Herbert Chapman or Arsene Wenger. Or maybe take a look at the Tony Adams, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry sculptures. The famous Arsenal cannons can also be seen in the South West corner of the stadium outside the club shop.
If you are sitting at The Clock End, why not take a trip down memory lane and visit ‘The Spirit of Highbury’ shrine which lists every player to have played for Arsenal during its 93-year residence.
