ARSENAL NOW IN DRIVING SEAT

Arsenal Football Club have installed new luxurious dug-out seating at the Emirates courtesy of Citroen, the team's official car supplier.

The 40 red leather seats were designed by Loughborough-based Auto-kit International and each depict the Gunner's club badge and Citroen's new logo on the head rests.

Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger, said: “We are delighted with the new Citroen dugout seats, which are a real improvement and very much in keeping with the overall stadium design.”

The Emirates Stadium opened in July 2006, costing £390million and has a capacity of 60,355.

Andy Mangat, managing director of Auto-Kit said: “We’re proud that Arsène Wenger and the players are now able to watch the game in comfort and style.”
