We are delighted to announce the creation of the Arsenal Women Matchday Forum.
The forum will allow supporter representatives to come together throughout the season to discuss matters relating specifically to Arsenal Women matchdays.
We have seen unprecedented support for our women’s first team in recent years and particularly in the last season, as we set a new record attendance in the Barclays Women’s Super League and achieved a first-ever sell-out at Emirates Stadium for an Arsenal Women match.
Beyond these highlights, there has been consistent backing at Meadow Park and away stadia across the UK and Europe, with supporters who have followed us for many years joined by fans who have started attending women’s first-team games more recently.
As a club, we are so proud of the support we receive from our fanbase and we recognise the importance of working closely with our supporters to optimise the experience for all.
The Arsenal Women Matchday Forum will provide supporters with an opportunity to discuss issues such as ticketing, pricing, access and community projects. Arsenal representatives from a range of departments will participate in the forum, which we believe will become an important part of our interaction with supporters.
If you would like to participate in the forum, we would love to hear from you. To apply, please fill out this form by 5pm on 6 July and tell us about your journey as an Arsenal Women supporter. Once the deadline has passed, we will select a group of representatives with the aim of establishing a forum which reflects the diverse community that supports Arsenal Women every week.
“We have received unbelievable backing from our supporters this season and for many years,” said Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley. “With confirmed plans to play five league games at Emirates Stadium this season alongside matches at Meadow Park, it’s crucial that we continue to work closely with our valued supporters to ensure that we are able to deliver the best possible experience for all.
"The Arsenal Women Matchday Forum will provide our supporters with a space in which to ask questions, raise issues and work with us as we continue to move forward together.”
