Arsenal Women’s WSL match at home to Sp*rs has been postponed due to severe weather conditions. With storm Ciara tearing its way through the southeast of England, a decision was made not to play the game at about 8.30am due to supporter safety concerns.
With public transport and roads severely affected and a sold out crowd, both clubs and the match officials agreed that the game will be rearranged at a date to be confirmed.
⚠️ Match Postponed ⚠️
Our fixture against @SpursWomen at Meadow Park today has been postponed on the grounds of crowd safety, due to extreme weather conditions.
Please do not travel to Meadow Park. A further announcement will be made shortly.

At time of writing, three of the six WSL games scheduled for today have been called off due to the weather, with West Ham v Manchester City and Manchester United v Chelsea also in some doubt.
The game is likely to be rearranged for a midweek slot later this month or in March, but an announcement will be made in the coming days. The Gunners next game is at home to Lewes in the FA Cup next Sunday at 1pm at Boreham Wood and you can buy tickets here.
