Arsenal has responded to the success of its women’s programme by creating a forum to discuss matters such as ticketing and pricing.
The Arsenal Women Matchday Forum has been launched in the wake of the club setting a new record attendance in the Barclays Women’s Super League and achieving a first-ever sell-out at Emirates Stadium for an Arsenal Women match.
The forum will provide supporters with an opportunity to discuss issues such as ticketing, pricing, access and community projects. Arsenal representatives from a range of departments will participate in the forum.
Arsenal said the forum has been set up in recognition of the importance of working closely with its supporters to optimise the experience for all.
“We have received unbelievable backing from our supporters this season and for many years,” said head of women’s football, Clare Wheatley. “With confirmed plans to play five league games at Emirates Stadium this season alongside matches at Meadow Park, it’s crucial that we continue to work closely with our valued supporters to ensure that we are able to deliver the best possible experience for all.
“The Arsenal Women Matchday Forum will provide our supporters with a space in which to ask questions, raise issues and work with us as we continue to move forward together.”
Arsenal Women play the majority of their games at Meadow Park, the home of Boreham Wood FC, but Emirates Stadium welcomed over 60,000 fans for the UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final second leg match against Germany’s VfL Wolfsburg in May 2023. A total of 60,063 fans attended the match, a record for women’s club football in England and a sell-out for the 60,704-capacity Emirates Stadium.
