English football giant, Arsenal FC, fresh from their victory over Chelsea FC last Saturday in the Emirates FA Cup, headed to Dubai for celebrations.
It was the 13th victory of the historic trophy for the Gunners, who stormed the Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai at 7he Sevens for its lucky students to partake in the frenzy.
During the visit, the team took special individual and group photos with the trophy, and over 120 kids had their photo taken with the iconic trophy.
Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai is a joint venture between Emirates and Arsenal, open to boys and girls of all abilities, aging from five to 20.
Each year, more than 400 children are taught to “Play the Arsenal Way’, based on the same principles taught to the first team. The training programme is also designed to help aspiring young footballers develop their skills on the pitch, ensuring they have a platform to reach their potential.
Emirates has been a proud sponsor of Arsenal Football Club since 2004, and the partnership includes the club’s jersey sponsorship and naming rights to Arsenal’s home ground, Emirates Stadium.
In 2015 Emirates became Title Sponsor of the FA Cup, the world’s oldest and largest domestic football tournament, which is now globally known as The Emirates FA Cup.
The Emirates FA Cup also made a special visit to Emirates Group Headquarters, and employees were given the chance to take pictures with the trophy.
