Arsenal announce trio of 2022/23 WSL fixtures to be played at the Emirates

Arsenal have announced that their WSL fixtures against Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea will all be played at the Emirates Stadium during the 2022/23 season.

Should the Gunners progress to the Champions League group stages, the club also plan to stage all three of their group fixtures at the Emirates.

Arsenal must first play a two-legged qualification playoff in the final two weeks of September to book their place in the Champions League group stages. They will discover their opponents on 1 September.

The Gunners’ first WSL match at the Emirates during the 2022/23 campaign sees them take on north London rivals Tottenham on Sunday 25 September,

The fixture will mark the second time that the north London derby has been hosted at the Emirates, following Arsenal‘s 3-0 victory on the penultimate day of the 2021/22 season.

The 38,262 strong crowd that attended Tottenham vs Arsenal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November 2019 remains the all-time highest WSL attendance record.

“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,” said Jonas Eidevall.

“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.”

The game is scheduled to kick off at 2pm on Sunday 25 September, however this is subject to change according to broadcast picks. All tickets purchased will remain valid for the revised kickoff time and any supporters unable to attend will be entitled to full refunds.

Arsenal will also face Manchester United at the Emirates on the weekend of 19/20 November 2022, before welcoming Chelsea to N5 on the weekend of 14/15 January 2022.
