Footballer and Arsenal Legend, Dennis Bergkamp was immortalised in bronze last week at the Clock End of Emirates Stadium to join tributes to fellow footballing heroes, Herbert Chapman, Tony Adams and Thierry Henry. Following a friendly tip-off from Henry that the unveiling would be an emotional moment, Bergkamp spoke fondly of his years at Arsenal, commenting that although his statue stands alone, it was the whole team that made him shine during his 11 years at the Club.
Emirates & Arsenal Football Club opened their first shared brand sports bar this summer. The space was the first collaboration between Club and Sponsor, and celebrates Arsenal and Emirates’ global reach.
20.20’s concept was to engage with Arsenal fans around the world and capture their journeys on match day. A global photoshoot was commissioned to help showcase fan stories in Emirates destinations - from a train journey in Mumbai to a cafe in South Africa - allowing fans in the Emirates bar on match day to understand what their fellow supporters get up to.
Long term friends of 20.20, Arsenal FC played their final home game of the season at the weekend and manager Arsène Wenger spoke to the official matchday programme about the ongoing improvements of the Emirates stadium known as Arsenalisation.
“As a home for Arsenal Football Club, this stadium is getting better and better” said the long-serving manager.
Arsenal Football Club has today honoured a trio of Club legends by unveiling three statues outside Emirates Stadium, 20.20 worked with the Club to set the creative brief and art direct the production of the statues.
Innovative 1930s manager Herbert Chapman; defensive stalwart Tony Adams and goal scoring hero Thierry Henry have all been commemorated by the bronze statues, which were today unveiled at Emirates Stadium by Arsenal Chairman, Peter Hill-Wood.
