Emirates welcomes the Arsenal men’s team to its Expo 2020 pavilion.
Emirates, the Premier Partner and official airline of Expo 2020 Dubai, welcomed the Arsenal men’s team to its pavilion. More than 20 members of one of the world’s most popular clubs got a glimpse into the future of commercial aviation through an exciting experience at the Emirates Expo 2020 pavilion.
Arsenal players created their own aircraft and explored the interiors of the future’s showrooms, while others experimented with aircraft materials at the Future Labs exhibition in the pavilion. Emirates presents 10 multi-sensory installations and thought-provoking experiences for all visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai. The visit was part of the Expo 2020 Dubai Club tour, which included a stop at the mega event’s gravity waterfall, where players dipped their feet and tried to climb the four-storey walls.
Arsenal player Alexandre Lacazette said: “It was an incredible experience visiting Expo 2020 during our visit to Dubai. We enjoyed the hard work of training in the warm weather in a first class environment and it was great to take a break to explore the Emirates Pavilion. The boys had a very exciting glimpse into the future and the gravity-defying waterfall was a special experience for them. On behalf of the club, I would like to thank the Emirates for making us so welcome.”
The Arsenal team arrived in Dubai for warm weather training as they prepare for the final weeks of the 2021/2022 football season. Dubai has become the club’s preferred base for winter training due to its world-class training grounds and year-round accessibility to sports facilities such as the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex, as well as a wide range of attractions to visit during the players’ holiday. The visit is also an opportunity for the club to meet with its key partner, Emirates, to further develop the partnership and exchange ideas on upcoming initiatives.
The partnership between Emirates and Arsenal is one of the longest and most recognisable in the Premier League, and one of the longest in the world of sport, with Emirates branding on the club’s shirts for over 15 years. Arsenal’s stadium will also be called the Emirates Stadium until 2028. The airline has also placed images of several first-team players on its A380 aircraft, and special liners have been flying around the world in honour of the partnership for the past few years.
The club’s frequent visits for training as well as friendly matches confirm Dubai’s status as a world-class sports hub and a hub for professional sporting events.
