Ever dreamed of running out onto the pitch at the Emirates stadium? Well, we can't get Wenger to put you in the Arsenal squad... but Emirates is giving you and 12 teammates the opportunity to play on the hallowed turf of their home ground.
As a proud partner of Arsenal and FIFA, Emirates shares our passion for the beautiful game and has teamed up with Time Out to offer this opportunity to the people that really understand the game: the fans.
Four lucky teams will be invited to participate in a round-robin tournament at the Gunners' home ground (where Team Time Out will also be competing) refereed by FA officials. All teams will receive post-match hospitality, and the winning squad will not only take home the inaugural Emirates Time Out Cup but also enjoy a future Arsenal home game in the Emirates Hospitality Box. In the unlikely event that we win, the runners up will get the grand prize.
To enter, simply share a photo of you and your potential teammates with us using the form below. Your final 13 needn't all be included, but the more the merrier, eh? Four winning teams will be chosen at random and contacted on Friday, April 26.
Note: winners will need to be available from 12.30pm on Friday, May 3.
Terms and conditions apply. By entering this competition you agree to receive relevant communications from Time Out including news, events, offers and competitions. This competition will close at midnight on April 25th 2013.
Ever onwards the poké trend rolls, with peddlers of marinated fish popping up across town like wholesome little whackamoles. Soho’s decent joints (Tombo, Ahi, the excellent Island) are now joined by Dean Street’s Honi Poké. It’s a neat, airy little spot, with a clean Asiatic look and breezy surf vibes (emphasised by the actual longboard outside the door). The process is familiar: either choose a preconceived house bowl (of cured tuna or salmon, octopus or tofu) or build your own. Choose a protein, then a base of brown or sushi rice, veggies or leaves; plus ahi, chilli garlic, kimchi or ginger soy sauces; and myriad sprinkles and garnishes, from sunomono cucumber (a kind of half-pickled cucumber salad), nori, kimchi or fennel, through to crunchy onions and togarashi (a Japanese dry chilli mix). Clean eating pick ’n’ mix, basically. I hit the house bowls: a Honi Poké of tuna, cucumber, nori, kimchi and salty mango (an ace idea, though a bit subdued in practice) on brown rice was a dense and flavoursome pile of food, both fresh in flavour and nicely filling. As it should be for nearly a tenner. Simpler was an Octo Poké, the moresome little sucker briefly flame-licked and popped onto a pile of sticky sushi rice, flecked with togarashi and kimchi sauce. A dinky side pot of wasabi peas were slightly soft – the kind of thing that’d pass in a bigger bowl, but not solo. Still, it was a sole misstep. Seating is limited, but this is a fine spot for a grab-and-go lunch or quiet early e
