Marvin Berglas, creator of Marvin’s Magic, was the first resident magician in the Premier League and has been providing the magic element to match day hospitality at Arsenal Football Club since 1993.
As part of Arsenal’s 125th anniversary, which coincides with the 25th anniversary of Marvin’s Magic, the club has chosen Marvin to be featured on the special banners surrounding the podium at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal has selected only 60 past players, celebrity fans and loyal servants to honour in this way. The banner remains up all season and the one featuring Berglas is nearest the Thierry Henry statue.
Marvin commented: "As a massive Arsenal fan I was both thrilled and honoured to be recognised in this way. Arsenal is a big part of my life, having supported them all my life as well as playing in the Arsenal Ex Pro Celebrity XI for 16 seasons.
"In the past, I have had my face on the big screens at Times Square, featured on the sides of London Taxis and even on various cereal packs in the States, but as a lifelong Gooner…this is magic."
