If this looks familiar, it’s because we said a lot of the same prior to the last NLD in January.
BG has been fortunate in terms of our home: we’ve never had to share it with another soccer supporters club, and we’ve rarely if ever had to turn people away due to crowd size. However, Arsenal are as popular as ever, this match is exclusively on Peacock, and Dillon’s holds a maximum of 340 people. There is also a chance of weather during the match, which would preclude using the patio and reduce capacity.
As a result, there is a solid possibility Dillon’s will reach capacity prior to kick-off. Thanks as always for RSVPing, however we must note that RSVPs aren’t reservations.
Opposition supporters are categorically not welcome. Among the obvious reasons, capacity is reduced for deserving Gooners. They can watch literally anywhere else.
Doors open at 8a. Please avoid congregating outside of Dillon’s prior to 7.45a.
Early arrival highly suggested. Consider your options if unable to arrive prior to 8.30a.
Since this match is streaming-only, we cannot designate anywhere nearby for overflow.
Please be very patient if planning to order food. Staff won’t have much room to maneuver.
Those who RSVPed with several guests are advised to sort your groups before arrival.
Once again, we’re not trying to scare anyone off from coming. Quite the opposite: we want to ensure everyone wanting to watch this match can, whether with us or not.
BG and Dillon’s apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
