Arsenal have joined other clubs in the battle against Coronavirus with a £100,000 donation to various organizations battling the pandemic.

In a statement from the club, officials outlined the measures they are taking to help in the fight against the virus, which has eaten into all major leagues across the world. 

“The Arsenal Foundation will donate £100,000 to local charities and organizations that are supporting those most in need during this COVID-19 crisis,” read part of the statement.

“We are in constant dialogue with Islington Council and our partners in the NHS to ensure this response is aligned with their priorities and supports those most vulnerable.  

Adding: “A further £50,000 already donated to local community initiatives by The Arsenal Foundation, in partnership with Islington Giving, will also be re-directed to Islington Giving’s Crisis Fund as part of this COVID-19 community response,” 

The club was the first to affected by the virus when manager Mikel Arteta tested positive, forcing the entire team to go into self-isolation.

The Premier League, just like other major leagues across Europe, was subsequently suspended after more players and teams got affected. 

The league is expected to resume on April 30th.
