Arsenal v Chelsea


3 Aug 17

We do love spoiling you lot, we really do. As well as enjoying the live action from this year’s World Championship games in London, we’ll also be screening Sunday’s match between Arsenal and Chelsea.

This is the iconic Community Shield and this year it’s a significant game for London. The FA Community Shield is viewed by many fans as the gateway to the English professional season but it’s also a fantastic opportunity to raise funds for worthy causes. This weekend, the funds raised will help to support those affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower. Survivors and the incredibly brave men and women from London’s emergency services are also invited to attend the match at Wembley Stadium, just a few short miles from Kensington. The game aims to raise £1.25 million to help those most in need.

The FA’s chairman, Greg Clarke, said “like the rest of the country, we were all deeply saddened by the terrible incident at Grenfell Tower. The suffering and loss for those involved is unimaginable. Whilst only a football match, we hope that in some small way through the Community Shield we can help. Two great London clubs will come together to play at the city’s most famous stadium just a few miles from Kensington. They will be united in their passion for football, grief at this tragic loss and support for their community.”

Two British footballing heavyweights, Arsenal and Chelsea, will take to the pitch with the full roar of the crowd at Wembley behind them. It’s guaranteed to be a belter a game and we’re screening it live from 2pm on the big screen at Boxpark Croydon.

Be sure to stop by and visit any number of our fantastic traders and bars dotted around the venue. If you’re a newcomer to Boxpark Croydon then you will literally be spoiled for choice at the selection of food and beverages on offer. 

What could make for a better Sunday afternoon than top food, great beers and live football.
