Arsenal Women announce first ever pre-season tour to USA

Arsenal Women will embark on their first ever tour in the United States this summer as part of our pre-season preparations.

The team will be based in Washington D.C. from 15-26 August, with friendly matches taking place against National Women’s Soccer League side Washington Spirit and fellow Barclays Women’s Super League team, Chelsea.

These matches will take place at Audi Field on Sunday 18 and Sunday 25 August respectively, with a training camp at George Mason University held over the course of the visit.

It will follow our men’s US Tour across Los Angeles and Philadelphia between 21-31 July, with tickets still on sale for our matches against Manchester United and Liverpool.

Jonas Eidevall and his players’ pre-season tour to the US comes after a successful trip to Australia which rounded-off the 2023/24 season. Our first ever match there saw 42,120 supporters watch us beat A-League All Stars Women 1-0 at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne. Over 5,000 supporters were also welcomed to an open training session at AAMI Park in Melbourne during the trip.

Arsenal’s Official Hotel Partner,, will support the women’s team tour through the provision of accommodation for players and staff.

Arsenal Sporting Director, Edu Gaspar, said: “We always want to create the best conditions for our teams to prepare and perform at their best in pre-season. This gives our players an opportunity to play and train in a new environment, in front of our supporters around the world.

“We look forward to a strong pre-season for our men’s and women’s teams, laying the foundations for a successful season ahead.”

Managing Director, Richard Garlick said: “To take our women’s team to the US for the first time on tour is another sign of great progress.

“We know from our recent trip to Australia that the interest and love for Arsenal Women stretches far and wide. We want to build on that and bring our US supporters closer to the club.

“We look forward to our visit and building strong foundations for a momentous season ahead, which will see more women’s games come to Emirates Stadium.”
