Arsenal plan to renovate Emirates Stadium with fans to consult

The Gunners moved from their former home, Highbury, to the Emirates in 2006 and the club are aware that the site needs some refurbishment.

Repairing the stadium’s roof, which has recently had a tendency to leak, is a key project objective and the work is expected to take up to 40 weeks. However, this should not impact the capacity of the site.

Arsenal are also looking to replace the huge crests attached to the outside of the pitch and the legends pattern around them will be revamped. The club plans to liaise with a fan working group on the latter to ensure supporters are on board with any new design.

Work to improve the turnstile readers is on the agenda and the large screens inside the pitch will also be modernised.

The works plan was passed on to Arsenal supporters at a fan forum meeting on Tuesday, which was attended by chief executive Vinai Venkatesham.

The club urged supporters to continue to report issues with the stadium that need to be addressed and said they would try to incorporate them into ongoing work.
