Women's Football News
Arsenal are urging fans to come down to Boreham Wood to be part of an exciting evening of FA Women's Super League action, when they face Chelsea Ladies on Thursday 6th June, 7.45pm.
Both sides will be looking forward to showcasing the skills and quality of women's football on national television when the game is broadcast live on ESPN.
The Gunners are looking forward to trying to continue their winning roll after their spectacular victory in the FA Women's Cup Final against Bristol Academy. Chelsea will also be up for the challenge and will be looking to make amends following their recent narrow defeat against Birmingham City Ladies to clinch their third FA WSL win. It is the first time the two sides have met this FA WSL season and it promises to be a London derby not to be missed.
With tickets costing only £5 for an adult and £2.50 for children and concessions, the match offers a perfect family occasion to watch women's professional football at an affordable price.
Prior to seeing the two teams in action, fans aged 5-16 years old are invited to take part in a FREE, interactive fanzone, brought by Continental Tyres. Games include batak boards, a speed cage, a target shoot inflatable plus a new trailer that houses digital stations and the FA WSL and Cyprus Cup trophies. Arsenal will also display the FA Girls' Youth Cup and the FA Women's Cup trophies.
To add to the enhanced fan experience, there will be hair braiding and face painting, all of which will take place outside the stadium from 5.45pm. Arsenal Under-17's players, recent winners of the Under-17's National Cup, will be in attendance to meet and greet the youngsters. There will also be a Female Referee Ambassador present, Sasa Ihringova, to deliver practical mini whistler activities. All those who register at the fanzone will get free entry into the game.
Arsenal Manager Shelley Kerr said: "We are delighted that the match is to be shown live on ESPN and we are hoping to show the nation some top class women's football. We are confident that this London derby will attract a good crowd plus with both a free interactive fanzone and lots of entertainment going on, it will hopefully inspire as many people as possible to come to the game."
In addition, The FA is offering coaches across the county the chance to get involved in an exciting new coaching tool - The ContiWarmUp Programme. The free web based programme endorsed by The FA, is designed to optimise performance and minimise injury. Coaches are invited to attend the interactive fanzone to find out more about the online resource, take part in a 30 minute ContiWarmUp demonstration and discuss the benefits of warming up with an expert Continental Tyres Coach in a question and answer session. They will also be offered tickets to attend the game to enjoy top level women's football.
Coaches can apply by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. They are required to hold a minimum current FA Level 1 coaching badge and an FA CRB.
Laura Hardy, sponsorship manager at Continental Tyres, said: "It is fantastic that ESPN are broadcasting this exciting FA WSL match. This is set to be a great family occasion, showcasing top class women's football, as well as offering supporters the opportunity to take part in the interactive fanzone and coaches the chance to enhance their knowledge through The ContiWarmUp Programme."
