Arsenal will play Linkoping of Sweden in their UWCL first round tie to qualify for the Champions League group stage. If they defeat the Swedish side, they will play the winners of Paris FC (not to be confused with PSG) v FC Kryvbas of Ukraine in the final of the League Path qualifiers.
The Linkoping tie will be played on September 6 with the following tie to be played September 9. All of the matches will be hosted by one of the teams in the group, Arsenal are unlikely to be able to host because Boreham Wood’s fixtures are not yet known for next season so they would not currently be able to commit to using Meadow Park.
The political situation in Ukraine makes Kryvbas an unlikely host so the games will almost certainly be held at either Linkoping or in Paris. Even if Arsenal lose to Linkoping, they will play a third place playoff game against the losers of Paris FC v Kryvbas.
Arsenal are in qualifying round one because they finished 3rd in the WSL last season, if they come through these matches then they will progress to the final playoff round in October which involves a two-legged tie. Only four clubs qualify for the group stages outright.
Update: the matches will be played in Linkoping.
