Wow – what a weekend! We’re still re-living our Emirates FA Cup win and we know one Junior Gunner in particular who will be re-living this for many years to come.
JG Lili was selected at random to be our mascot for the Emirates FA Cup Final. If you haven’t already, make sure you watch Kieran Gibbs and Olivier Giroud surprising Lili with the news she was going to be our mascot – Lili’s reaction is priceless!
As our JG mascot, Lili was given a full Arsenal kit, and tickets for her family to be at the match to watch her performing her mascot duties. Lili got the chance to go behind-the-scenes at Wembley Stadium, meet the first team and walk out onto the pitch ahead of kick-off with the Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker.
The opportunity to be an Arsenal mascot is exclusively for our Junior Gunner members and is always allocated at random. Make sure you renew your Junior Gunners membership before June 5th!
