The full fixture list for Arsenal’s WSL title defence has now been announced. The opening fixtures were announced last week, with the Gunners opening at home to West Ham United on Sunday, 8th September at the revamped Meadow Park. This match will be screened live on BT Sport 1.
The full fixture list is available to view here. But standout dates include Arsenal’s first ever North London derbies in the WSL, with Spurs having been promoted to the top flight. These will take place on 17th November away from home (this is an international weekend for the men) and 9th February at home. The away match will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Gunners travel to Chelsea on 13th October, where they were 5-0 victors last season, while Manchester City will come to North London on 27th October. Manchester United have also been promoted to the WSL this season and Montemurro’s champions travel there on Monday, 16th September.
As reported yesterday, the club are investigating staging some double headers with the men’s team after this summer’s Emirates Cup. There is plenty of potential for them to do this with some big ticket fixtures.
