A Gooner’s Itinerary for Arsenal in Sydney – Arsenal Down Under Part 3

For all of you who are making the trip and the Aussie Gooners who are already here, I thought I would put together details of the ‘official’ itinerary and include a few other events that you might interest you.

 

Tuesday 11th July

6:40am(ish)  @ Sydney International Airport

The team touch down in Sydney for the first time in 40 years.

Australian Gooners are used to early starts, so this is a prime opportunity to be one of the first to catch up with the team when they arrive.

 

Wednesday 12th July

Time and location to be confirmed – The rumour mill goes that the 3rd kit will be launched in Sydney and will be worn for both games.

At this stage, there are no official details but on the grapevine, a number of first team players will be doing a meet, greet and sign at the PUMA STORE CHATSWOOD between 12-2pm. 

Kit launch? Maybe?

 

 

Thursday 13th July

4pm @ The Abattoir Blues Bar

      Steve does mention that the 3rd kit launch was rumoured in the piece. Perhaos it was confirmed after he has submitted the article. Apologies
