Thousands of Arsenal fans have gathered outside the Emirates Stadium to protest the club’s attempt to join the breakaway European Super League.
Fans have also called on owner Stan Kroenke to sell the club ahead of Friday’s Premier League game against Everton.
Fireworks were set off outside the stadium shortly after kick-off and the crowd began to disperse soon after.
The demonstration followed the Chelsea fans protest outside Stamford Bridge Tuesday and yesterday at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground.
Arsenal were one of the ‘big six’ clubs planning to join the controversy Super League, which was announced on Sunday.
After the outcry from fans, former players and experts, Premier League clubs withdrew two days later.
Reviews included former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman and former striker Ian Wright.
During the protests, Wright tweeted “#Kroenkeout”, while Arsenal fan and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek suggested buying the club.
Arsenal board apologized in open letter to fans after their withdrawal and said they “made a mistake”, adding that they were stepping down after listening to fans and the football community .
