Interview

Wienroither: "This club feels like home to me"

Laura Wienroither has become the latest Gunner to extend her stay in north London with a new contract.

In an exclusive interview with the club, our Austrian defender reflected on her growth and development since she first joined back in 2022 and shared why the decision to stay was an easy one. 

"This club feels like home for me," said Laura. "I care about the people in the whole club so much. I think something which I appreciate a lot is when I feel comfortable somewhere and when I can be myself somewhere. That's definitely the case here. There is no place I'd rather be."

From her challenging comeback from injury to matches at Emirates Stadium she'll always remember, our number 25 spoke about her Arsenal journey so far, her connection with our community and supporters, and her hopes for the future - on and off the pitch.

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.”
