Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium will serve as the primary home ground for the women’s team starting from the next season, following a remarkable surge in interest, the club announced on Tuesday.

In addition to regular League matches, any home legs in Champions League knockout ties will also be held at the Emirates.

Remaining fixtures, including all domestic cup matches, will continue to be played at Arsenal’s Meadow Park ground, located in London’s commuter belt.

Throughout this season, six Women’s Super League (WSL) games held at the Emirates witnessed an average attendance of just over 52,000 spectators, featuring two sell-out matches and setting three WSL attendance records.
