Football greats gathered to celebrate Arsène Wenger’s induction into the Legends of Football Hall of Fame on 7 October 2019, during an amazing evening that raised an incredible £521,000 for Nordoff Robbins.

The event, hosted by Legends of Football Chairman Geoff Shreeves, honoured the legendary Arsenal manager which brought together an evening of music and football.

Arsène Wenger said, “Since leaving Arsenal I received some interesting proposals, however, one invitation that I did not hesitate to accept, and I am extremely honoured to do so, is to receive the 2019 Legends of Football award”.

Wenger was joined by Arsenal legends Robin van Persie, Robert Pires, Lee Dixon, Gilberto Silva, David Seaman and a host of other stars from the world of football.

Speaking about the power of music Arsène said, “I have always enjoyed music and have been excited to be involved in the work Legends of Football does to support Nordoff Robbins, which is a fantastic charity. Music therapy can change people’s lives, across a broad spectrum of disabilities.”

Legends of Football has been raising vital funds for Nordoff Robbins for more than 20 years, with £8 million raised to date.
