Arsenal.com to stream Women’s FA Cup tie against Gillingham on Sunday

6

Arsenal will be providing a live stream of the Women’s team’s FA Cup 4th round tie at home to Gillingham on Sunday. The match kicks off at 2pm at Meadow Park with Arsenal providing build-up from 1.35pm before streaming the game live, as well as post-match reaction.

The match was not selected by the BBC so since the Women’s FA Cup is not covered by the FA Player app, Arsenal have been allowed to stream the game themselves. Centre-half Jen Beattie will be the co-commentator with broadcaster (and one-time guest on the Arsenal Women Arsecast) Anne-Marie Batson providing analysis.

The game will be free to watch for digital members of Arsenal.com- you can become a digital member very easily (and for free) by signing up here. If Arsenal defeat Gillingham, they will play either London Bees or Crystal Palace in the next round, tie to be played on Sunday, 16th May at Meadow Park.

Amazing! The Gills are my home team so will be a good one to watch 🙂 I remember going to that FA Cup match between Arsenal and Gillingham at Highbury when the Gunners won 5-2… 2-2 at half time until Henry and Pires came on – brilliant match!

As a Gooner who’s now lived in Kent for over half a lifetime, I wish Gillingham well. There’s a lack of top teams in this part of the country and it would be really good for the development of the women’s game for Gillingham to be successful, especially after they’ve been messed around by the men’s team. I look forward to a good game where Gillingham do themselves proud – but Arsenal progress to the next round!

Given the match was only confirmed last week, is there a reason the club couldn’t have scheduled the game for 3.30pm to avoid a clash with the men’s team? Would be nice to not have to choose between the men’s and women’s teams and watch both

I’ll be watching both — the men on the TV, the women on a laptop or tablet.

Not sure it is up to the club when they play games. It appears to be TV companies that dictate the fixture list and if they are not interested in a game then the FA pick the time but they don’t give a toss about clashes with other matches the fans might like to watch at the same time.
Not sure if the Arsenal webstream is live only or it can be paused and watched later or be otherwise available to watch at a later date like FA Player. Any idea, Tim?

Arsenal must win the game 4- 0
