Arsenal in the Community

April 2009 - In Arsenal in the Community, Panna Knock Out found a fantastic partner for Panna tournaments in London, held under the name Dutch Panna Knock Out.

The collaboration came about thanks to the Municipality of Islington, the event-management agency AquaTerra and the Dutch Embassy in London. The embassy supported Panna KO in its conquest of the UK.

“There is a real buzz around Islington ahead of this Sunday’s Panna UK Final. The young people we have introduced to Dutch Panna have really enjoyed taking part and learning more about this unique type of street football.”
P.W. Waldeck, Dutch ambassador to the United Kingdom
“Dutch Panna Football is a grass roots phenomenon from the streets of Amsterdam. It is highly successful in getting people from all different backgrounds to come together. We are very pleased to introduce to the British people this wonderful game and hope they too will benefit from its cross cutting appeal."

April 2009 - During the UK Tour in 2008, Panna KO visited the Cruyff Court Bergkamp in London to put on a tournament and freestyle shows. The trainers of Arsenal FC were deeply impressed by the game and the skills of the Dutch players. After visiting the 2008 Panna Dutch Championships, they knew that they had to bring Panna to London.

Since then, Arsenal in the Community events have been held with Panna pitches bearing the logos of Arsenal, Panna KO and the Dutch coat of arms. In April and May, Arsenal in the Community organised many tournaments. On 31 May 2009, to round off the 2009 UK Tour in style, they offered their stadium for the Panna KO UK Championship.
