Join us on Wednesday May 31 at Wembley Stadium for an exclusive evening with Arsenal and England football legend Tony Adams in conversation with The Times chief football writer Henry Winter.
 

Tony Adams played more than 650 games for Arsenal during a twenty-year career at the club, captaining them from 1988 to 2002 and winning league titles in three separate decades. During his football career he also won 66 caps for England.

In his new book Sober co-written with Ian Ridley, Adams explains the struggles he’s faced to stay sober for twenty years and why he set up Sporting Chance, the charity which provides treatment and support for sports stars suffering from addictions. 

He discusses the impact that Arsene Wenger had when he arrived at Arsenal in 1996, and how the manager’s new methods helped extend his career and brought new success to the club. Plus, he gives his incisive thoughts on England’s continued failings in major tournaments and assesses why Arsenal have struggled to repeat the title-winning formula of his own time there.

Guests will have the chance to put their own questions to Tony and copies of Sober will be available to purchase on the evening. There will also be the opportunity to have your book signed by Tony at the end of the evening.
