Time to Explore: Lotte's community programme

When Lotte Wubben-Moy signed her Arsenal contract extension in 2022, she made a commitment to community work, as well as football. 

With the help of Arsenal in the Community and the staff at the Hub, the Time to Explore programme was born. The free weekly sessions were designed to provide creative opportunities for 16-year-old girls in Camden, Hackney and Islington and the programme is now in its second year. 

"They play football 25% of the time, but the other 75% of the time is spent exploring things that I think helped me in my youth grow into the person I am today," said Lotte. "The person that doesn't just focus on football and appreciates other things in the world. 

"It's an array of different things that I'm passionate about, and that I hope these girls might be passionate about too. That's what Time To Explore is about: it's exploring whether you like something, but also whether you want to pursue something further and using football as a means to do that."

"I think all too often at school, we're told no. We're told to be quiet, we're told to behave, and in reality, I think the most growth you make as a young woman is when you're free when you're able to express yourself. 

"I'd like to think that every Tuesday these girls come down here is a chance for them to be free in that way."

These matches will take place at Audi Field on Sunday, August 18 and Sunday, August 25 respectively, with a training camp at George Mason University held over the course of the visit.

It will follow our men’s US Tour across Los Angeles and Philadelphia between 21-31 July, with tickets still on sale for our matches against Manchester United and Liverpool.

Jonas Eidevall and his players’ pre-season tour to the US comes after a successful trip to Australia which rounded off the 2023/24 season. Our first-ever match there saw 42,120 supporters watch us beat A-League All Stars Women 1-0 at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne. Over 5,000 supporters were also welcomed to an open training session at AAMI Park in Melbourne during the trip. 

Our official hotel partner, Hotels.com, will support the women’s team tour through the provision of accommodation for players and staff.

Sporting Director Edu Gaspar said: “We always want to create the best conditions for our teams to prepare and perform at their best in pre-season. This gives our players an opportunity to play and train in a new environment, in front of our supporters around the world.  

“We look forward to a strong pre-season for our men’s and women’s teams, laying the foundations for a successful season ahead.” 

Managing Director Richard Garlick added: “To take our women’s team to the US for the first time on tour is another sign of great progress.  

“We know from our recent trip to Australia that the interest and love for Arsenal Women stretches far and wide. We want to build on that and bring our US supporters closer to the club. We look forward to our visit and building strong foundations for a momentous season ahead, which will see more women’s games come to Emirates Stadium.”
