To hear more about Arsenal’s focus on playing more women’s games at Emirates Stadium, listen to the most recent Arsenal Women Arsecast in which Tim talks to Emirates Stadium Venue Director Tom McCann about the subject, Tom also confirms these were the three fixtures most likely to be hosted at the Emirates.
Jonas Eidevall said: “The North London Derby is a fixture that belongs at Emirates Stadium, so we’re delighted to be able to confirm the match will be played there once again this season. The support we had from the fans at the Emirates last season was incredible and we’ve seen during the Euros how much demand there is to watch the biggest games at the best venues. I can’t wait to get back out there in front of the Arsenal supporters.”
