Arsenal community are mourning the loss of the club’s die-heard supporter Maria Petri.

A statement via the English club’s official website reads:

It was with great sadness that the club has heard of the passing of legendary supporter Maria Petri. It’s very difficult to put into words what Maria meant to everyone involved at Arsenal Football Club: players, staff and fellow supporters.

Rarely can it be said that ‘games just won’t be the same’ without a supporter, but Maria’s presence, her legendary ‘Come on You Gunners!’ and many, many supportive songs created over the decades, will truly leave a void on matchdays at Emirates Stadium, Meadow Park and at away matches wherever we are playing.

Maria often said that “Arsenal was her family” and that family is devastated today. She also said: ‘I shall be oh so upset when I die, I won’t be able to watch Arsenal anymore.’

Well, everyone at Arsenal Football Club can’t quite believe that you won’t be able to give your very special support to our club anymore. You’ve been one in a million and we’ll never forget you Maria. Rest In Peace.

Below are how many paid their tributes to the Arsenal famous fan.

May she rest in peace.
