Kim Kardashian, Gisele Bundchen among Arsenal’s glamorous celebrity fanbase as Arteta’s boys go worldwide

Arsenal fans were visibly surprised when they saw Kim Kardashian supporting their team in the stands in the Europa League penalty shoot-out defeat to Sporting CP.

However, fans were also visibly upset as they lost the match, being knocked out of the Europa League. Granit Xhaka scored an opener in the 19th minute. But then Pedro Goncalves scored a stunning goal from the hallway line. Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsadale was off his line and was caught unaware. They then bowed out of the competition after losing the penalty shootout.

Fans of the North London team while surprised at her visit were quick to say they hoped Kim didn’t come back to an Emirates game ever. But Kim isn’t their only celebrity fan. As Arsenal continues to rack up wins in their title challenge, they gain more popularity around the world. Over the years, they have attracted a lot of glamorous celebrities to their games.
