Arsenal have been named named the club of the year in a new set of awards run by the Premier League and the VisitEngland tourism board for providing the best customer service to fans. That service was declared "simply outstanding" by the panel of experts judged clubs "across eight areas including ticketing, stewarding, catering, toilets and the club shop," according to the Press Association.

-A chauffeur service to and from Emirates Stadium provided by Andrei Arshavin for all female ticket holders (disclaimer: Arsenal Football Club do not approve of or agree with any of the giggling or sexist comments Andrei Arshavin makes while driving).
-An all you can eat buffet offered to all executive suite guests served on Gervinho's forehead.
