Arsenal fans given chance to camp overnight on Emirates pitch

Young Arsenal fans are given the chance to camp overnight at the Emirates on May 23.

Young Arsenal supporters have been given the opportunity to spend the night camping on the Emirates pitch.

Defender Carl Jenkinson, who grew up as a Gunners fan, has helped the club's initiative by pitching up a few tents to promote the May 23 activity.

"I'd have loved the chance to camp out overnight on the Arsenal pitch growing up so it's great the club are giving young Gooners that chance," the Daily Mail quotes Jenkinson as saying.

"I'm not sure what the groundsmen thought of me pitching up a tent on the training pitches, but I hope my decorating skills give the Junior Gunners some ideas for their campsite."

Four hundred supporters will have the chance to play on the pitch before their camping experience.
