The studious Frenchman, largely regarded as one of the world's top coaches, joined Arsenal in 1996 and has delivered five major trophies in seven-and-a-half years at the helm.
The North London club look set to reclaim The Premiership title and Wenger is looking forward to leading the club at their new stadium - with a move scheduled for 2006.
''They are very supportive,'' Wenger told the club's official website. ''It is a 100 percent supportive atmosphere.
''That is why I am still here, because we get support from the board.
''There was a time when they needed to be strong and they were. That is what makes the club special.
''There is a trust that you do not find in many places.''
Meanwhile, Arsenal have been boosted with the news that Ray Parlour came through 65 minutes of a reserve team game unscathed.
Parlour was playing his first game since limping out of Arsenal's FA Cup defeat of Chelsea on February 15 with ligament damage.
Philippe Senderos also returned to action, after recovering from a broken bone in his foot and he marked the occasion with the game's only goal.
