Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium is poised to become the primary home for the women’s team starting next season, driven by what the club describes as an “extraordinary” surge in interest. The club revealed plans for 11 games to be held at the stadium in the upcoming 2024/25 campaign, comprising eight Women’s Super League (WSL) matches and potentially three Champions League games if the team qualifies for the group stages. Additionally, any home legs in Champions League knockout ties will also be hosted at the Emirates.

Remaining fixtures, including domestic cup matches, will continue to be played at Arsenal’s Meadow Park ground, located in London’s commuter belt. The decision comes following a successful season that saw six WSL games held at the Emirates, drawing an average crowd of over 52,000, including two sell-out matches and three attendance records for the league.

Arsenal’s chief executive, Vinai Venkatesham, expressed enthusiasm about the decision, citing the growing support for women’s football at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal Women’s head coach, Jonas Eidevall, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the special connection between the team and its supporters and expressing excitement about playing in front of larger crowds at the Emirates every week.
