24 March, 2020

ALL casual workers employed by Arsenal will be paid up to the end of April, the club has announced.

A statement from the Gunners says the gesture reflects the club’s gratitude to them and a “desire to ease financial concerns during this challenging period.”

Arsenal managing director, Vinai Venkatesham, said: “We are truly grateful for the outstanding efforts of all our staff across the club every day.

“We rely on their tireless service to provide a first-class experience for our fans, on matchdays and non-matchdays.

“These are challenging times for everyone, but in particular our casual workers. This gesture is intended to ease their financial uncertainty while football is currently suspended to April 30.

“We look forward to welcoming football back to Emirates Stadium as soon as possible.”

The club plan to review the arrangement after a decision has been made as to when football can resume.
