Emirates Stadium to become new home of Arsenal Women next season

Arsenal Women will make the Emirates Stadium their main home at the start of next season. 

The club has announced that 11 games will be played at the ground next season- eight Women’s Super League games and three Champions League games, if of course Arsenal qualify for the group stages. 

The remaining fixtures, including all domestic cup matches, will take place at Arsenal’s Meadow Park in Borehamwood. 

The six WSL games that Arsenal played at the Emirates this season saw an average attendance of over 52,000, which included two sold out venues and three WSL attendance records.

Arsenal chief executive Vinai Venkatesham said: “We have recently seen extraordinary growth in supporters coming to Emirates Stadium for games held here, which include two complete sell-outs this season. 

“The next step in our journey is to make Emirates Stadium our main home for Arsenal Women. We are looking forward to giving more supporters the chance to watch our women’s team play.” 

Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall added: “We have a special connection with our supporters, who have shown up in huge numbers and pushed us forward every step of the way. 

“Next season, Emirates Stadium becomes our main home and we are all excited to play in front of bigger crowds every week.”
