Arsenal Double Club Languages is a community, non-profit project founded and coordinated by Arsenal in the Community, the social, charitable department of Arsenal Football Club.

All costs to participate on the programme are reinvested into the cost of running the project, most notably to continuously create new and engaging resources.

  • Optional Language Day visit for Beginners Level participants: £7.50 (+VAT) per pupil

The school is responsible for arranging and covering any other associated costs, including staff to run sessions in school and transport to and from Emirates Stadium for the Language Day visit.

If your school is in Islington, Camden, Hackney or Hertsmere, you may be eligible to participate at a subsidised rate through our commitment to the respective local authority. Please contact languages@arsenal.co.uk to enquire.
