    Arsenal are playing at home in a domestic football match although they are allocated the away dressing rooms at Highbury.

    Everything is assumed to be as normal and the away side use the home dressing room.

    Whats happened and why?

    There's a spider in the changing room and the players are too scared to get rid of it as they're a bunch of girls; so they thought they'd leave it for the other team.

    It's Arsenal of South America or Mexico or something.

    I know there's an Arsenal in one of those countries, is it Argentina?

    Because no one else is nearly as good as Arsenal, it softens the pain of defeat to let the opponents think they're playing at home.

    The match is a cup match and was originally scheduled as away for Arsenal, however the home team have chosen to play it at Highbury because they get higher revenue from the gates.

    Wouldn't a home defeat be worse?

    it was when england were playing all around the country and they played france (arsenal first team) and so arsenal (france) were in the away dressing room

    I'm curious now. Are any of these the right answer? I'd go with arsenal vs arsenal reserves or The match is a cup match and was originally scheduled as away for Arsenal, however the home team have chosen to play it at Highbury because they get higher revenue from the gates. 2nd is more likely

    I'd def go for the relocation suggestion. Did you know that the only team allowed to use triangular corner flags in the premiership/nationwide league is the team that wins the FA Cup, so therefore Arsenal.

    Maybe Arsene just preferred the away changing rooms because the showers are only working in there....

    Of course Arsenal could be sharing Highbury (theoritically) and therefore when playing the team that is sharing the ground, i.e. an away fixture at their home ground, they would have to dress in the away rooms.

    Maybe an away team camped outside the stadium, and took over the home changing rooms early in the morning cos it was way better. In order to avoid that happening again, they decided that the away team should have the home changing room.

    maybe an FA Cup quarter/semi final with Arsenal drawn as the away team...against another London team and no other venues available.

    OR more likely, Champions League Final, pre-arranged before the tournament even began that it would be held at Highbury...Arsenal make the final but are drawn out of the hat as the away team therefore use that changing room.

    not the hardest question really....

    Neither of those answers work though . When two London teams are drawn against each other, in the past they have played at Old Trafford or Villa Park. As for the Champions' League idea, the question states that it is a domestic match.

    lol didn't read the domestic match bit ! :rolleyes:

    normally matches are played at villa park/old trafford but like i said, they could be unavailable or in use.

    probably go with the re-location idea then..
