A group of Arsenal supporters in Uganda managed to get in serious trouble during their celebrations, though.They Arsenal took to the streets of Jinja on Monday morning to celebrate the victory.
The fans were wearing Arsenal shirts and travelled in a convoy of five vehicle.
One of the supporters even carried a symbolic trophy that they had bought at a local store.
But their celebrations came to a halt when police intervened.
The group were told they didn’t have a permit to hold the procession, which is a public order offence.
At least eight Arsenal supporters partaking in the celebrations were arrested.
James Mubi, the regional police boss and a self-declared Arsenal fan, said: “What would happen if an altercation with rival fans broke out? They did not inform police to provide security for their procession.”
