Arsenal Women’s Game at Liverpool Moved to Chester FC

5

Arsenal Women’s WSL clash with Liverpool this coming Thursday has been moved to Chester’s Deva Stadium due to ongoing concerns over the state of the pitch at Liverpool Women’s Prenton Park home. Liverpool’s last two home games have been postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

Tranmere Rovers played a home match on it on Tuesday evening, with further home fixtures scheduled for Saturday afternoon and Tuesday evening. Liverpool will face Arsenal on Thursday evening and the clubs have taken preemptive action to move the game to Chester City’s Deva Stadium to avoid further postponements.

“It was important that we could provide certainty for this game for the fans, players and staff of both teams as well as meet all the requirements of the WSL,” Liverpool Chief Executive Peter Moore said. “That has been achieved thanks to the generous cooperation of everyone at Chester FC. Liverpool Women would also like to thank Arsenal Women and the FA for their support.”

This match will be screened live on BT Sport in the UK and on the FA Player app everywhere else. It will kickoff at 7pm on Thursday evening, Arseblog News will have full pre and post-match coverage on the site.

Wow, that pitch is awful.

You have to wonder how Tranmere continue to play on it.
Our local village pitch has more grass although out of control dogs do tend to dig holes in one penalty area so perhaps there is something interesting buried underneath.

Pretty ridiculous that one of the richest clubs in the world can’t provide one of their football teams with a better pitch than this to play their home matches at.

They even make the women train at Tranmere’s training ground. Liverpool are spending millions on a new training centre and they’re not letting their women’s team use that either.

Far East Stand

They don’t seem very enthusiastic about having a women’s team!
