Jonas on "more games with bigger audiences"

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.
