Women’s football Ashburton Grove to become main home of Arsenal Women

ASHBURTON GROVE will become the main home for Arsenal’s women’s team from next season.

The club announced plans for 11 games to be played at the ground next term – eight Women’s Super League and three Champions League games, if qualification for the group stages is secured.

Home legs in any Champions League knock-out ties would also be staged at the ground.

Remaining fixtures, including all domestic cup matches, will take place at Arsenal’s Meadow Park ground in Borehamwood.

Six WSL games played at Ashburton Grove this season saw an average crowd of just over 52,000, which included two sell-outs and three WSL attendance records.

Arsenal chief executive Vinai Venkatesham said: “We have recently seen extraordinary growth in supporters coming to [Ashburton Grove] for games held here, which include two complete sell-outs this season.

“We are looking forward to giving more supporters the chance to watch our women’s team play.”

Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall added: “We have a special connection with our supporters, who have shown up in huge numbers and pushed us forward every step of the way.

“Next season, [Ashburton Grove] becomes our main home and we are all excited to play in front of bigger crowds every week.”
