Kim Kardashian upped her soccer mom cred by taking her seven-year-old son Saint on an epic soccer trip across Europe.
The 42-year-old mother treated her son Saint, some of his soccer friends and their mothers on a trip to London, to see Arsenal in a match at Emirates Stadium.
She even organized a meet-up with one of the players and a video chat with another, though one packing mishap caused Saint to declare it, ‘The worst day of my life.’
The game on March 16 – at which she and Saint were spotted, prompting frenzied speculation of filming – saw the Gunners crash out of the Europa League at the last-16 stage after losing to Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon on penalties.
Arsenal came into the second leg game having drawn 2-2 in Portugal, and a promising early goal from Granit Xhaka was neutralised by Pedro Gonçalves in the second half before the team lost 3-5 after full-time.
Early in the episode, Kim explains she’s going to take Saint and four of his friends on a ‘soccer tour.’

‘We’re gonna go to London first, to go to an Arsenal game, and then we’re gonna go to Paris to see the Paris Saint-Germain game. Kendall will be there and it’ll just be so much fun,’ Kim tells Kylie.
Kim was spotted on March 19 at Parc des Prince, home of Paris Saint-Germain; PSG lost 2-0 against Rennes in the French Ligue 1 game.
Goals from Rennes’ Karl Toko Ekambi and Arnaud Kalimuendo prompted jestful speculation that she was jinxing the games.
In the episode, Kim adds in confession that her seven-year-old son Saint has a, ‘newfound obsession/love with soccer, so I decide I wanna plan this like legendary trip of a lifetime.’
Kylie admits to Kim she’s not a, ‘sports girl,’ but Kim says, ‘It’s so fun to be like a sports mom,’ as Kylie says Kim, ‘you’ve got to, like, help me when Aire grows up a little bit because I’m like, I don’t know what to do.’
Kim tells Kylie, ‘I’m into it now,’ before adding in confession, ‘I love my girls, but a girl is like… steals your clothes, has an attitude, you know. There’s nothing like being a boy mom. Like seriously, it’s the best.’
The episode transitions to an airfield where Kim arrives to take off for her European soccer trip with Saint, his friends and his friends’ moms.
‘I am taking Saint and his best friends and their moms on a trip to London and Paris. It’s called our Soccer Mom Tour Trip. Our boys love soccer and they’re obsessed with all the players from (Kylian) Mbappe, (Lionel) Messi, (Christiano) Ronaldo, Neymar (da Silva Santos Júnior), (Bukayo) Saka. You name it, they’re obsessed,’ Kim says in confession.
‘I try to find what my kids’ passion is, and do a trip with them. I’ve taken Chicago and her friends to San Diego. They love the zoos and the Legolands and all that.
‘Luckily, Psalm just tags along, you know. North loves Paris and fashion, so I took her to Paris. Saint loves soccer, so I figured this is our trip. It’s gonna be so much fun and it definitely is just such an amazing bonding experience,’ Kim says in confession.
They all board the plane as Kim tells everyone, ‘Guys, when we get to London, we’re on the field, we meet the players, we get the jerseys.’
Kim’s friend Allison Statter tells Kim, ‘the field is called the pitch,’ as Kim says in confession: ‘What’s so fun is Allison’s mom is Shelli Azoff, and my mom are best friends, and we were our son’s ages, they took us on a trip to London.
‘Her dad, Irving Azoff, manages The Eagles, so we went on tour with The Eagles, from city to city and it’s just so cool we get to do this as adults now and have our boys grow up the way we did.’

No sports: Kylie admits to Kim she’s not a, ‘sports girl,’ but Kim says, ‘It’s so fun to be like a sports mom,’ as Kylie says Kim, ‘you’v got to like help me when Aire grows up a little bit because I’m like, I don’t know what to do’
Kim asks the group ‘the big question: When we get there, are we gonna call it soccer or football?’ as Kim says all of the moms are, ‘the best soccer moms in the world.’
Later in the episode, the moms are all trying to get the boys changed for the Arsenal match.
‘We’re in London and we got a little bit of rest so we can be ready for the Arsenal game tonight. This is like a dream come true. I played soccer, so I want to make sure Saint has so much fun and falls in love with the sport,’ Kim says in confession as we see the boys playing soccer in the hotel hallways.
Kim and the moms are on their way, telling Allison, ‘I just love that we can give this to our boys. They’re gonna remember this forever.’
Kim tells them, ‘So this game, one of the players is gonna come and meet us. I don’t know who,’ as one of the moms says ‘There might be some cute guys,’ as Kim asks, ‘Why are you all looking at me?’
Kim adds, ‘I have age limits, guys,’ as one of the moms jokes, ’18?’ Allison says, ‘After my last experience I have age limits.’
Kim confirms, ‘I need just a little bit more age appropriate. I need like 40s,’ which surprises Allison, who says, ‘Really? I’m into that.’
Kim says in confession, ‘When you’re single and all your friends are married, it’s like you have desperation written on your face and everyone under the sun wants to hook you up with someone. I’m genuinely just OK being by myself for a minute, and the right situation will come my way.’
Players: Kim tells them, ‘So this game, one of the players is gonna come and meet us. I don’t know who,’ as one of the moms says ‘There might be some cute guys,’ as Kim asks, ‘Why are you all looking at me?’
Back in the car, Allison asks what Kim is wearing to the annual Met Gala, and asking if Chris and Mario are doing her glam, which she affirms.
Another mom asks what the theme is, and Kim says it’s Karl Lagerfeld, the German fashion designer who passed away at 85 in 2019, as Kim adds: ‘Like, I wouldn’t go, but I’m also really petty like that, how that thing came out that was like, “None of the Kardashians are invited to the Met.”
‘It was like a big story, it came out last week and everyone was like, ‘Oh my God, is this true? Are you really not invited?’ So like there’s something about me that’s like, “Oh, I just wanna show up.” I mean it was just like a thing because I was never invited for… like… I was like Kanye’s plus-one.’
She adds that she is bringing someone with her, as the moms all gasp and ask who, but Kim says: ‘Something with me.’
Kim adds in confession, ‘I have no idea what I’m gonna wear to the Met this year, but I had the best idea to bring Karl Lagerfeld’s… cast, his baby Choupette. They loved the idea so I’m gonna meet Choupette when we go to Paris, so I hope Choupette likes me.’
Kim and the other moms arrive at Emirates Stadium in London, home of the Arsenal soccer/football team, as Kim asks the boys, ‘who’s excited’ and they all say, ‘Me!’
Kim is shown to their suite before walking down to get a closer look at the pitch.
‘We are at the Arsenal game. It is so exciting just to be in the stadium. Our boys couldn’t be more excited for this game, and it’s just so fun to see this joy in them,’ Kim says in confession.
‘I like soccer, but I never had this like passion before, and the fact that all the boys love it so much, just makes it so much fun.

Kim and the moms are leading their boys through the arena, as Kim asks them who their favorite Arsenal player is, and they all say Saka.
While they’re walking through the arena, Saint is heard saying, ‘This is the worst day of my life,’ as Kim responds, ‘Oh stop it, Saint.’
They go in the suite as Kim tells him to get his jersey, as Kim explains in confession that she, ‘forgot Saint’s red Arsenal jersey that we specifically got for this trip, that, of course, I left at home. I’m the worst.’
Saint is still sulking in the suite, as Kim says, ‘Oh, buddy. Life is so tough,’ as Kim adds in confession, ‘It’s really hard for me to be really strict and to discipline a lot,’ while everyone is given a swag bag.
‘My parents weren’t strict at all, and sometimes, because I’m really busy, it would be amazing if I had a partner who would come in and tap me out and take over and handle it, you now, but it can’t happen like that.’
Kim mentions that the goalies are out on the field and the players are starting to come out, as Saint rushes down to get a closer look.
‘I do think that my household, and even in my family, it’s very female-dominated, and I recently hired a manny. I really wanted a male around that was going to be picking them up and taking them to sports, and I was scared out of my mind to tell their dad that.
‘When he was dropping off the kids, Kanye introduced himself, played two-on-two with Saint and him, has been so nice to him, saying, “Hey, if you’re gonna help raise my son…” cause he handed him the ball like really easily or something and he’s like, “Don’t do that. Make him go get it himself. These are some of the rules that I would want.” And I was like, Oh my God, OK. That’s great,’ Kim says in confession.
Kim takes a snap with all of the moms overlooking the pitch, and a snap with her and Saint, when they’re greeted by Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, who gives Kim a hug and shakes hands with the kids.

He gives them all red Arsenal jerseys and as Saint puts his on, Kim says in confession: ‘Finally, happy kids, and they also get to meet the Arsenal Gunners’ mascot – Gunnersaurus Rex.’
Kim adds in confession, ‘This is all you want in life. You just want happy kids, you want everyone to be appreciative, that’s all I want and I feel I finally got it tonight.’
‘There is so much going on in my life. Still in school, my businesses that I’m running, but I will make all the time in the world to create memories with my babies and I know will mean the world to Saint,’ Kim adds in confession.
Kim tells the moms and the kids that, if Arsenal wins the match, they can go down and meet the players.
Back in confession, Kim adds, ‘I feel like North is like, lives her life like an only child, does her thing, then the two little ones (Chicago and Psalm) are a year apart, so they’re like twins almost and they’re always together.
‘So Saint loves the little ones, would love North if she would hang out with them, but she won’t, so I wanna give him a little bit of attention. And he’s such a momma’s boy and I love it, and I know those years aren’t gonna last forever.
‘Like it’s already he doesn’t like me to kiss him goodbye at school anymore, and he gets so embarrassed and he looks around and sees where his friends are and quickly hugs me and runs, so we’re already there.’
The boys and the moms all leave the suite, as one of the moms say it was a ‘good game… up until the end.’
Kim adds in confession, ‘It was such a good game, ugh, Arsenal lost, but tomorrow, I’m so excited to go sightseeing, to show them a little bit of London and have fun in a whole new place.’
The next day in London the boys and their moms all did some shopping before taking in Back to the Future: The Musical in London’s West End, even meeting with and dancing with the cast.
Happy kids: Kim adds in confession, ‘This is all you want in life. You just want happy kids, you want everyone to be appreciative, that’s all I want and I feel I finally got it tonight’
Later all of the moms are in a car together, as Kim reveals in confession, ‘It’s St. Patrick’s Day, my security is watching all of the kids so that the mom’s finally can have some fun.’
They head out to a pub as the mom’s all toast with pints of Guinness, as Kim looks to the camera and says, ‘We all need a little drink to deal with our kids.’
A young woman walks up to Kim and asks to take a picture with her, adding she’s trying to be a lawyer as well, adding she qualifies in September.
They take a picture together before Kim and the mom’s all leave, as Kim adds in confession, ‘It’s fun to be recognized by a fellow law student. It’s just like fun to walk into a random pub with random people and like hang out and be normal.’
They get back to the hotel and find that, ‘the boys are wide awake, so what else is there to do but play soccer in the hallways,’ as we see Kim getting in on the fun.
‘Luckily we have the whole floor, because I would never let my kids keep people up at night, but I will let them play soccer in the hallways, if that will tire them out and put them to bed, so game on,’ Kim says in confession.
‘These last few days in London have been so amazing. Next up, we’re heading to Paris, to go to the Paris Saint Germain game,’ Kim says in confession, as Kim jokes in the hallway, ‘Give me a Guinness and I’ll play.’
