A record-breaking 38,500 tickets have been sold for Arsenal Women's clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, September 24.
This year's derby is set to be the all-time highest attendance for a Barclays Women's Super League game. The previous record of 38,262 was set in 2019 during another North London Derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“It’s been incredible to see the demand for tickets for the North London Derby,” said Head Coach Jonas Eidevall. “You can really feel the excitement around the game at the moment so it’s amazing to see that translate into a record-breaking attendance – now it’s our job to repay that enthusiasm with a big performance in this crucial clash for our supporters.”
A classic fixture since Tottenham were promoted to the WSL in 2019, we last hosted our local rivals at Emirates Stadium in May. Goals from Beth Mead and Caitlin Foord secured a 3-0 win after a comprehensive display from our Gunners.
We will play two further WSL fixtures at Emirates Stadium during the 2022/23 campaign and, dependent on our qualification to the UWCL group stage, we also plan to host all three Champions League group fixtures in N5.
The match will kick off at 1.30pm (UK time) on Saturday, September 24 and will be broadcast live on the BBC.
