Riverside Kids Play for Arsenal This Summer

How many youngsters dream of one day belonging to the Arsenal Football Club? Probably quite a few, and this summer they’ll have the chance to get a little taste of that life at Riverside Shopping Centre.

Arsenal’s youth membership scheme, the Junior Gunners, and Arsenal Soccer Schools are heading on a road trip to a number of centers this summer, including Riverside. When they arrive, they’ll give kids the chance to take in a behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day life of Arsenal players, both in training and in the stadium.

Participants can enjoy a virtual tour in the Arsenal Training Centre. They’ll be introduced to Arsenal’s coaching staff via a video message, and they’ll get to run up against top Arsenal players on the Batak Wall, an impressive piece of technology that’s used by the team to improve reflexes.

To keep memories of their day on the team, young shoppers can have their photos taken against virtual Arsenal backgrounds. They can also explore the players’ changing rooms at the virtual Emirates Stadium, where they can get prepared and warm up for the big game. They’ll also get to rush through the player’s tunnels and onto the pitch, where they’ll face down a penalty shot and maybe even save the game.

If that dream day as a team member isn’t real enough, they’ll have the chance to go to the real thing, with prizes to win that include two tickets to an Arsenal home match next season.
