The American - vice-chairman of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) and KSE UK - is the son of Arsenal’s billionaire owner Stan Kroenke and has served as a director at the club since 2013.
Arsenal’s fans forum scheduled for this week was initially postponed in the wake of the Super League fiasco, but is set to take place at 4:30pm BST on Thursday afternoon.
The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST) revealed on social media that they had demanded that either Stan or Josh Kroenke appear at the forum after Arsenal’s apology for their “mistake” in signing up for the Super League was signed by the “Arsenal Board”, which does not include chief executive Vinai Venkatesham.
The AST tweeted: “Yesterday the AST along with most supporter forum members sent the following to Arsenal: The statement issued by Arsenal clearly signs off as the ‘Arsenal Board’.
“As we know, [chief executive] Vinai Venkatesham is not on the board so who from the board will be joining us on Thursday to apologise and justify their decisions over the last few days?
“We expect Stan Kroenke or Josh Kroenke to be present - and if they really are sorry, they can tell us themselves. It’s been confirmed that JK will be attending. We’ll be telling him exactly what we think!”
Arsenal fans’ unhappiness with the ownership of Kroenke has only intensified in the wake of the Super League debacle, with supporters planning to stage a protest before Friday night’s Premier League fixture against Everton at Emirates Stadium.
