Ostersunds' 'warm' welcome for Arsenal ahead of Europa League clash

Ostersunds have laid on a special Swedish welcome for Arsenal ahead of the Europa League last-32 clash between the two sides this Thursday evening.

Indeed, the club posted a message on social media to announce they are now fully prepared for Gunners' imminent arrival, along with a couple of photos of their hospitality the Premier League side can expect to receive.

Ostersunds shared images of various items of kit hung up around the interior of an igloo-style snow cave.

"We are ready for you Arsenal!" the Swedes quipped. "Did we mentioned our new locker rooms?"

With temperatures currently well below zero in Ostersund, we're not entirely sure they're joking.
