2. Driving Uber/Lyft/Deliveroo

How nutty would it be if MArteta showed up at your door unannounced, with some grub and a pint (for some of us) in hand? Or, you’re getting off a night out with some friends, and Alexandre Lacazette opens your door for you, then pops into the drivers seat?

Uber, Lyft, and Deliveroo are some of the fastest growing industries in the world, and Arsenal, in my estimation, can certainly capitalize. It would be an amazing marketing ploy, but the potential of interacting with some of the biggest stars in world football, and meeting them as people, not just images on a screen, would be absolutely mad.

I can picture it now: a super overwhelmed Londoner, headed home from a pub crawl, crammed into the back seat of a Vauxhall Corsa next to a sweaty camera crew, with theiR favorite Gunner at the wheel. I think I would give my life savings for that experience.

The celebrity presence would also serve to pump up advertisements and increase both order and rider frequency. People all around London, and eventually the world, would be fighting for a place in the queue. It’s such a mutually beneficial idea, I can’t believe nobody has thought of it.

The Arsenal YouTube channel could create endless content of fan reactions, and people would be given a direct look into a much more human, personal Arsenal. Plus, a partnership with those brands would do very well in terms of income streams, and imagine the tips they would get? We could buy Dayot Upamecano in a year!
