Win a pair of VIP tickets to see Arsenal Legends play Real Madrid Legends at the Emirates next month.

We’ve teamed up with Gunners to offer a lucky reader a pair of VIP tickets to the game at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, September 8, kick-off 2pm.

The match, which sees net proceeds from ticket sales donated to The Arsenal Foundation for a ground breaking new football project, is the second leg of this charity fixture which ended 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu in June.

Arsenal Legends including Robert Pires, David Seaman and Freddie Ljungberg will pull on the Arsenal shirt once again for a great cause.

Real Madrid Legends’ squad will include Brazil’s World Cup winners, Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos among others.

For the opportunity to enjoy a day out in style at the Emirates all you have to do is follow Arsenal reporter Layth Yousif on Twitter @laythy29 and join the Islington Gazette’s Arsenal Facebook page.

Winners will be notified in the week leading up to the match. Layth’s decision is final.

Tickets are still available, from £20 adults and £10 concessions. Visit for more.
