We are supporting Earth Hour by turning off the lights at Emirates Stadium from 8.30pm this evening, and continuing action beyond the hour with our commitment to sustainable energy with Official Club Partner Octopus Energy.

Earth Hour is a global movement that calls for greater action on climate change. Each year millions of people around the world come together for an hour to host events, switch lights off and raise awareness around climate change action.

It’s been the hottest year on record for the third year in a row so it’s crucial to show our support for action on climate change now more than ever.

Arsenal Deputy Stadium Manager Michael Lloyd said: “By joining millions around the world in turning off our lights, we want to show our support for action on climate change. But it has to go further than that. We want to encourage all Arsenal fans to make the small changes that they can, so we are making it easy for them to support our efforts and switch to green energy with our Official Energy partner, Octopus Energy.”
