Emirates Stadium updates – Arsenal have announced plans to expand the Emirates Stadium, increasing its capacity to 60,000. The club is set to spend £400m on the project, which will include the addition of a new tier and improvements to the existing facilities. The expansion will help to improve the matchday experience for fans and increase revenue for the club.
The announcement follows a successful 2021/22 season for Arsenal, in which they finished in the top four of the Premier League and reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League. The club’s fans will be hoping that the stadium expansion will provide a boost to the team’s performances on the pitch as well.
Arsenal’s Chief Executive, Vinai Venkatesham, said: “This is an important moment for our club. The Emirates Stadium is one of the finest stadiums in the world, but we know that to stay at the top of the game, we need to continue to invest in our infrastructure. This expansion will help us to do that, while also creating new jobs and opportunities for local people.”
The project is expected to take around two years to complete, with work set to begin in the summer of 2023. Arsenal’s home games will continue to be played at the Emirates Stadium during the construction period, with temporary measures put in place to ensure the safety and comfort of fans.
Arsenal fans will no doubt be excited about the prospect of a bigger and better Emirates Stadium, which has been the club’s home since 2006. The stadium has already played host to some of the biggest names in football, including Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. With the expansion, it is set to become an even more iconic venue in the world of sport.
