A little while ago we had an awesome time with our favorite football club, Arsenal! Arsenal is one of, if not the best football clubs in England, and maybe even the world(at least in our opinion). Founded in 1886, they have been around for a long time. Arsenal has won a lot of titles and leagues including: 12 FA Cups, 13 League wins, and an incredible 47 games undefeated in a row, the most in the history of the league. When Arsenal started, they originally trained in an armory, or an arsenal, and that is where they got their name. I'd say Arsenal is pretty amazing.
 A few weeks ago we had a blast doing the Emirates Stadium tour. It is called Emirates Stadium after Arsenal's biggest sponsor, Emirates Airline. Huge is an understatement for this incredible structure. Arsenal Stadium is an incredible 250 meters long, and 200 meters wide. The tour was outstanding! We saw many places in the stadium most people don't normally see including the Director's Box, the Changing Rooms, the Press Conference Rooms, and the Diamond Club. You can pay 25,000 pounds to become a member of the Diamond Club! The stadium tour was an amazing experience.
At the game, we were pretty high up, so we had a good view of the field. The game was so much more interesting in real life than on TV. The stadium was packed, with nearly 60,000 people. With that, Emirates Stadium is the third largest stadium in England. From our seats, all of the players looked like ants, but it was easy to follow the game. Arsenal ended up winning (of course), 2-0, which is awesome.
We've had an excellent time at Arsenal and can't wait for the next game!
