THE GUNNERS: Arsenal FC will return to China for a preseason game next summer after a "good run in this part of the world this year." Arsenal Chief Commercial Officer Tom Fox said, "We made a commitment in China and started with our partners to engage with the Chinese fans, as we have a very large social media community, which is growing fast ... we have promised fans we will be coming back" (SCMP, 10/17). Arsenal also has been named the Club of the Year for providing the best customer service to fans under a new awards scheme being run by the EPL and tourism board VisitEngland. Liverpool, Fulham and Man City "have also picked up gongs" in other categories in the VisitFootball awards (London DAILY MAIL, 10/16).
