ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB announced today that all fans inside The Emirates Stadium must exit a lot earlier during games after complaints of filled seats being visible in the 85th minute, it has emerged.
Arsenal fans, famed for leaving well before the final whistle, no matter the result, hit back with supporters clubs venting their fury on various fans’ groups.
One leading supporters’ club told Dafty News Sport: “This is a scandal. The club are trying to force us out of the stadium at home matches early but that’s impossible because most of us leave around the 70th minute mark.”
Club spokesperson said: “We’re sorry for all our season ticket holders but there has been far too many filled seats as the match heads towards the 80th minute.
“This is completely not on and we urge all fans to stick with the traditional Arsenal rules of vacating their seats as early as possible - even just after half-time, if possible.”
It’s not the first time Arsenal fans have clashed with the bosses at the club. Only last season around 30,000 fans were fined for singing only one song throughout an important English Premiership match.
