New Sydney Team
After a long investigation we regret to inform our members that we have no choice other than to expel Elia Eliopoulou as both a member and in his position as Sydney Representative from Arsenal Australia Supporters Club. We thank him for his commitment in the growth of the Sydney branch and wish him well in the future.
Arsenal Australia Supporters Club are disappointed that this decision was necessary, there have been a number of incidents that preclude him being associated with an official supporters club of Arsenal FC. These include using other people's red memberships to purchase tickets with the purpose of allowing others to attend matches using those memberships for entry, and this along with some protocol related incidents mean that Elia cannot be associated with an official supporters club.
We have appointed Mike Abdow, Aneste Christo, Eve Cazorla and David Maskiellas as our new Sydney Representatives. All of them are passionate Gooners and will take the support of Arsenal in Sydney to another level. They need a little time to settle in, but rest assured that they and the rest of the Arsenal Australia team will be working behind the scenes. This team will be focused on promoting support of the team we all love rather than on all the politics and backstabbing of the last 12 months.
