Citroen puts Arsenal in driving seat

Arsenal’s season - off the pitch - has got a whole lot better with the inauguration of luxury new pitch-side seats at Emirates Stadium courtesy of Citroën, the team’s official car supplier.

Designed by Loughborough-based Auto-kit International, the sporty, figure-hugging seats feature Arsenal’s crest and Citroën’s new logo sewn into the top-quality leather.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, commented: “We are delighted with the new Citroën dugout seats, which are a real improvement and very much in keeping with the overall stadium design.”

Martin Mangat, Auto-kit’s commercial director added: “It’s been a great pleasure to create these 40 beautiful seats for Arsenal.”

And Andy Mangat, managing director of Auto-kit also commented: “We’re proud that Arsene Wenger and the players are now able to watch the game in comfort and style.”

Since 2008, Arsenal staff, management, coaches and players have been enjoying a fleet of award-winning Citroën vehicles, including the stylish new C5, smart C4 Picasso and practical Berlingo Multispace.

Citroën’s spacious LCVs have also proved equally helpful, transporting training equipment to matches all around the country.
