The club's Emirates Stadium in North London now features eight giant banners showing images of the club's greatest players.

The banners, created by McKenzie Clark with creative agency 20:20 for Arsenal FC, feature players including Thierry Henry, Liam Brady and Tony Adams.

"Our biggest physical challenge was bringing all the various large, galvanized support structure component parts together over a six-week construction period," said Vertigo Joint MD Tim Roberts. "[It] required the site to be completely cleared of equipment, cherry pickers and workers, before every match."
