Arsenal Women’s Emirates Stadium Move


Arsenal women set to play most of their home games at Emirates Stadium next season

Arsenal women will use Emirates Stadium as their primary home field for the 2024–25 season, hosting eleven matches there, the club announced on Tuesday.

In addition to their eight Women’s Super League (WSL) games, the club hopes to play three UWCL matches at Emirates if they make it to the group stage of the competition.

Subject to Premier League and WSL scheduling, all eleven WSL games will be played at the Emirates if the club does not make it into Europe.

“The next step in our journey is to make Emirates Stadium our main home for Arsenal women,” said chief executive Vinai Venkatesham. We’re excited to expand ticket options so more fans can see our women’s team play.

“This is part of a collective drive across the club to take the women’s game forward and support sustainable growth of the game so it can thrive in the long term,” said Venkatesham.

When it comes to women’s sports, we have been pioneers for nearly forty years. There has been a remarkable increase in the number of fans attending games at Emirates Stadium, with two full houses this season alone.

If the team were to advance in the UWCL, the Emirates Stadium would host all home-leg knockout matches, for a total of thirteen.

Emirates hosted six World Soccer League matches this season, drawing an average of 52,029 spectators. Among these, two matches were sold out, and three set new records for WSL attendance.

“Next season, Emirates Stadium becomes our main home, and we’re all excited to play in front of bigger crowds every week,” declared Arsenal boss Jonas Eidevall.

With 60,160 spectators at the Emirates Stadium to see Arsenal’s 3-1 domestic WSL victory over Manchester United in February, the club surpassed its previous record of 59,042 for a December 4-1 win over Chelsea.

The women’s FA Cup and League Cup, as well as all of the club’s remaining games, will take place at Meadow Park, the current home stadium.

Including sell-outs at Meadow Park for every game this season, Arsenal have drawn an average of 32,618 fans to both of their home venues since signing a new 10-year agreement with Borehamwood in 2017.
