Arsenal supporters will have the chance to quiz the club over the new European Super League at a fan forum on Thursday.

The forum, which includes representatives of domestic and international supporters’ clubs, had originally been postponed.

However, it is now back on the table and representatives from Arsenal’s fanbase will be to attend on Thursday night to quiz chief executive Vinai Venkatesham over the new European Super League.

The Gunners are one of 12 clubs to sign up for the breakaway competition, along with the rest of the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’.

The move has gone down poorly with fans, however, and the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust condemned it on Monday.

They said: “The AST deplores the announcement by Arsenal that they are breaking away to form a European Super League.

“This represents the death of everything that football should be about.

“As fans we want to see Arsenal play in competitions based on sporting merit and competitive balance.

“Not surprisingly this action has been taken with no consultation or dialogue, continuing the silence and contempt that Kroenke has shown for Arsenal supporters since day one.

“The AST will do everything we can to oppose this. It will require firm action by the Government and the Football Authorities.

“We urge all Arsenal fans and all football fans to fight this by speaking up and acting against. By standing together we can see off this greedy proposal.

“The AST will now work with FSE, FSA, and other fan groups at both Arsenal and across the game in opposition to this.”
