Gunners legends Robert Pires and Lauren popped into ‘The Hub’ at the Emirates on Saturday to show support for the event.

A large number of teams took part in the inclusive five-a-side tournament before the first team mauled Everton 5-1 with the competition also marking the fifth birthday of the club’s LGBT group, the Gay Gooners.

Eight supporters’ clubs competed in the tournament, including the Gay Gooners – who were also celebrating LGBT history month.

They were joined by teams from Arsenal Denmark, Arsenal Women Supporters’ Club, REDaction, the Arsenal Walking football team and the Arsenal Eurofit programme. Also present were fans from Everton and staff of club partners Octopus energy.
