Arsenal’s game against Wolves on December 26th is in doubt due to potential disruption from a one-day strike by London Underground drivers.
As well as restricting those who wish to spectate, it would also have an influence on matchday staff. Arsenal released a statement today saying:
We would like to make all supporters aware of the situation surrounding our proposed home match against Wolves on Monday 26th December. The club is fully aware of the proposed industrial action on London Underground on Monday 26th December.
We are closely monitoring the situation, together with all the relevant agencies, including the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, London Underground, the FA Premier League, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and Islington Council.
The paramount concern to Arsenal Football Club is the duty of care we have towards the Arsenal supporters, Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters, matchday employees and indeed everyone who is planning to attend this match. Any decisions or developments regarding this match will be immediately communicated on Arsenal.com.
There is some suggestion the game could be moved to December 27th should the industrial action go ahead, but London Mayor Boris Johnson is hoping to reach agreement with trade unions to avoid the strike.
