Arsenal to play three WSL games and CL group matches the Emirates

Arsenal are set to play their Women's Champions League fixtures and at least three Women's Super League matches at the Emirates Stadium in the upcoming season.

Jonas Eidevall's side still need to come through a round of qualifying to ensure their place in the Champions League, but they are expected to get a favourable draw, having finished just one point behind WSL champions Chelsea last term.

If they do make it into the group stages, all three matches will take place at the Emirates instead of Meadow Park, the home of Boreham Wood.

As well as the European games, the Emirates will also host Arsenal's clash with north London rivals Tottenham in the WSL on September 25, the Gunners having beaten their neighbours 3-0 at the same venue last season.

Further WSL fixtures against Manchester United and Chelsea have also been moved, with the games being played on the weekends of November 19/20 and January 14/15 respectively.

The north London derby is a fixture that belongs at Emirates Stadium," said Eidevall.
