Arsenal Women set for ground-breaking trip to Australia with Postecoglou’s Tottenham Mens team

Arsenal Women set to go down under?

Recent reports in Australia have suggested that our Arsenal Women might be set to travel down under to Melbourne, Australia, for a post-season tour with our Aussie trio of Catley, Foord and Cooney-Cross heading home.

Tottenham’s new manager Ange Postecoglou has been rumoured to be heading back to his hometown, Melbourne, with his Tottenham team to play in a post-season game in Australia. It’s being reported by Australia’s “Sydney Morning Herald” that our Arsenal woman could be set to join the men’s London rivals’ team in Melbourne and could be set to play against an all-star A-league Women’s game at the legendary 100,000 seater Melbourne Cricket Ground.

It’s being said that Arsenal Women are close to agree a deal to come and face off against an all-star A-league Women’s side in May this year on the same night Tottenham are set to face off against an all-star A-league Men’s side.

The deal is reportedly contingent on our Aussie trio, Steph Catley, Catlin Foord and Kyra Cooney-Cross appearing in what could be an incredible experience for our women to go back home and showcase what they have on offer, and hopefully make the women’s game even bigger over in Australia.

Women’s football has grown massively in Australia since last year’s Women’s World Cup, and they seem to have well and truly caught the football bug. Football isn’t as prominent in Australia as it is in the UK and Europe, with their main sports being centred around cricket and Australia Rules Football. But since the World Cup the women’s game are thriving and have started to take advantage of that with suggestions about bringing our Aussie loved trio back home. With Women’s memberships for the local A-league Women’s league up by 669% since the World cup.

It’s being said that Tottenham and our Arsenal Women could play on the same night one after each other in what would pull in a massive crowd for both Spurs and our Arsenal Women and could be a great spectacle for the Australian public as they fall more and more in love with the game.

Nothing is yet to be confirmed but everything comes with its doubts, and our Arsenal Women’s staff and the club will no doubt be looking out for our Women’s interest above all. It’s exciting for the women’s game to have grown this much already and the attention it’s getting is only going to be good for the game.

  1. It is interesting how little knowledge exists in the UK of the long history of Association Football in Australia. The first England FA tour of Australia involved 25 matches played between 7 May and 3 August 1925. The Australian teams were quite competitive. Since that time there have been frequent tours from top overseas clubs and national sides, including World Cup and Asian Cup qualifiers.
    Unfortunately so many of the athletic resources of Australia at senior level are directed towards other football codes, particularly Australian Rules Football. The world would have to look out if these superb athletes pursued Football instead of Rugby League and AFL.. Despite this Australia has been competing well above its weight in the men’s game and particularly the women’s game for decades. This was well before the recent Women’s World Cup, which was granted on merit. After the experience with losing the Men’s World Cup to Qatar, it is hard to see any support (political or otherwise) for a future bid for this tainted event.
