There has been criticism from fans of late about the fading murals of Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal Football Club, which opened in July 2006. 

 

Match-going supporters and media personnel have pointed out the roof leaks in the stadium, at times having to dodge the leaking raindrops and puddles during rainy days.


As per the latest reports from Telegraph, Arsenal are planning to make significant investments in the Emirates Stadium.

The 60000 seater stadium lost its former glory, having not hosted a Champions League match since 2017 when they lost 10-2 to Bayern on aggregate. 

 

The club took heavy financial losses during the pandemic and are without a European competition to play in, for the first time in 25 years. They have released/terminated contracts of big-name players but haven’t made any significant money from sales either.

 

Though a lot will depend on whether the Gunners can make it to the top 4, a complete revamp of the stadium is very much on the agenda of the Arsenal board.

The plans will address multiple issues/improvements pertaining to the stadium with general wear and tear, roof leakage, upgrades to the big screen system, to name a few. 

 

The fans will happily welcome this move given the stadium's condition and not to mention their archrivals Tottenham have now got a new world-class stadium to boast about, just a few miles up North.
