Emirates joins in Arsenal FA Cup celebrations

Arsenal’s FA Cup celebrations moved from London to Dubai today when vice captain Mikel Arteta made a special visit to Emirates’ headquarters carrying the FA Cup.

Fresh from Saturday’s victory over Hull City, Arteta met the airline’s president, Tim Clark, before meeting staff who flocked to see and take pictures of the Arsenal star with the prized silverware. 

Emirates is the shirt sponsor of Arsenal and has naming rights to the Emirates Stadium in London.

After the visit to Emirates’ HQ, Arteta headed to Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai to assist with football exercises for young and aspiring players.
