Emirates Stadium becomes Arsenal Women's main home

Arsenal Women: Announcing 11 games at Emirates Stadium next season

We’re delighted to announce that Emirates Stadium will host 11 Arsenal Women matches in the 2024/25 season, making it the main home of Arsenal Women.  

We plan to play eight Barclays Women’s Super League (WSL) games at Emirates Stadium, alongside three UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) fixtures, should we qualify for the group stages of the competition.

Progress to the latter stages of the UWCL would also mean all home legs in knock-out rounds would come to N5. 

The remaining games, including all women’s domestic cup fixtures (Adobe Women’s FA Cup and FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup), will be played at the long-standing host venue, the Mangata Pay UK Stadium (Meadow Park, Borehamwood), the home of our men's U21 team.

This exciting news follows on from strong support both home and away this season. Our six WSL matches hosted at Emirates Stadium this season saw an average crowd of 52,029, which included two sell-outs and three WSL attendance records.  

These have contributed to an average crowd of 32,618 over the 2023/24 season so far, across both home venues, including sell-outs of every Mangata Pay UK Stadium fixture.  

Speaking about the historic news, Vinai Venkatesham, Chief Executive Officer, said: For almost four decades, we’ve been at the forefront of the women’s game. We’ve 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’re looking forward to giving more supporters the chance to watch 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.” 

Sporting Director, Edu Gaspar, added: “There’s great passion for our women’s team right across our club. We are one club, with a vision to win major trophies across our men’s and women’s teams. This move supports this ambition and we can’t wait to continue this amazing journey with our supporters.” 

Arsenal Women head coach, Jonas Eidevall, thanked supporters for the unwavering commitment that has made this move possible.  

He said: “We have a special connection with our supporters, who have shown up in huge numbers and pushed us forward every step of the way.  

“To everyone who has followed us so far, thank you. You have played a key part in our progress and growth, helping us write this story. 

“Next season, Emirates Stadium becomes our main home and we're all excited to play in front of bigger crowds every week. We can’t wait to see you all there.”  

We can also today announce a new package available to supporters for next season’s Emirates WSL matches. 

The new Emirates Home Advantage Pack + will give supporters the opportunity to purchase tickets for all eight planned WSL matches at the Emirates next season at a discounted rate.  

The Emirates Home Advantage Pack – a five-game package introduced for Emirates Stadium WSL matches ahead of the 2023/24 season – will also return, giving supporters the option of attending five select Emirates WSL matches at a discounted rate.  

The exact fixtures incorporated into each pack will be confirmed later this summer after the 2024/25 WSL fixtures have been released.

Jonas Eidevall leads a post-match huddle after Arsenal's game with Leicester City at Emirates

Jonas Eidevall has commented on our announcement that Emirates Stadium will host 11 Arsenal Women matches in the 2024/25 season.

Emirates Stadium will become the main home of Arsenal Women, with eight Barclays Women’s Super League games behind held there next season as well as three UEFA Women’s Champions League fixtures, should we qualify for the group stage.

Fewer games will still be played at the long-standing host venue, Managua Pay UK Stadium (Meadow Park, Borehamwood). To find out more, click here.

Speaking in his pre-Brighton press conference at Sobha Realty Training Centre on Friday, Jonas said: “I think it’s good news period that we’re going to play more games at the Emirates for a number of reasons but to name for me the biggest one is that we can have more games with bigger audiences and allow more people to come and watch and to support the team.”

This season, we’ve played six WSL games at Emirates Stadium. After losing 1-0 to Liverpool at the beginning of the season, we beat Aston Villa 2-1, Chelsea 4-1, Manchester United 3-1, Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 and Leicester City 3-0 in north London.

“It’s been great experiences at the Emirates this season and hopefully we can build on that and elevate that even further forward next season,” Jonas added.
