There are a fair few others who simply can't make the trip due to expense or unavoidable commitments and the options for them to experience this special game are limited with pubs and bars exploiting Gooners with £10 entrance fees and overpriced beer!
REDaction have collaborated with the Carling Academy to offer fans the chance to take over their venue for the night. Absolutely free! Here's what's on offer:
- free entry to one of London's most advanced venues
- Carling at £2.20 a pint all night!
- Opening times 6pm ‘til midnight (so take advantage of the late license)
- 600 capacity primed for a highly charged atmosphere
When doors open at 6pm, you'll find the Academy decked out with Arsenal banners with Arsenal matches being played on the massive match screen!
This event will be run by Arsenal fans for Arsenal fans and all the effort for the night is being done simply in recognition of AFC's big night out and not just to make a profit!
The Carling Academy is situated in the N1 Centre, 16 Parkfield Street nr. Upper Steet, London N1 0PS. This is a five minute walk from either Angel tube station or Highbury & Islington tube so convenience is thrown in too!

Whatever you decide to do on this historic night, make sure you enjoy it but don't get ripped off by greedy landlords serving watered down draught and taking advantage of your generous custom! Join your fellow fans at the Academy for what could be the night of our lives!
