TIS the season to be jolly – and with just four weeks to go till Christmas, you can spread plenty of cheer on December 25 by giving your loved ones the hottest sporting ticket in 2017: Arsenal In Sydney at ANZ Stadium.

Top of the Christmas list for any sports buff, the Gunner’s first trip Down Under in 40 years has already been heavily supported with over 80,000 tickets sold for their two matches against Sydney FC on Thursday 13 July and Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday 15 July.

Now - just in time for the festive season – a second release of tickets are available from www.arsenalinsydney.com for the back-to-back blockbusters, including family passes from $99 and a limited number of adult tickets from as low as $39.

The English Premier League giants are committed to bringing their strongest possible squad for the two Sydney games, with their playing roster boasting some of football’s brightest stars, with Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi, Olivier Giroud and Granit Xhaka lighting it up on a weekly basis.

“Everyone at Arsenal is looking forward to coming to Australia next summer. It’s been a long time since we’ve been Down Under and will be a great opportunity to give our passionate fans the chance to see the team in action,” an Arsenal FC spokesman said.

In an exciting initiative, the iconic English club will bring the Emirates Stadium experience to ANZ Stadium, with themed supporter areas and bars to give fans an authentic Gunners event-day experience.

The northern stands of ANZ Stadium will be transformed into the club’s celebrated North Bank for Gunners fans with supporters of Sydney FC (Thursday night) and Western Sydney Wanderers (Saturday night) taking over the southern stands, which will become The Clock End – just as it is at Emirates Stadium in North London.

For those rusted-on fans craving the ultimate Arsenal fan experience: you can join fellow Gunners tragics in The Foundry at ANZ Stadium, which will feature a cocktail function with a 4-hour beverage package, entertainment and Category A seating.

Tickets to The Foundry at ANZ Stadium are available here.

So ensure your loved ones have a very merry Christmas this December, with tickets to Arsenal In Sydney under the tree!
