‘Global Football Week’ Arsenal head to Melbourne to face Australian A-League Allstars Women

Arsenal Women finished off their 2023-24 campaign in style on Saturday, with a resounding 5-0 victory, over Brighton, at Meadow Park. Our Gunners season included a Conti League Cup win (over Chelsea) and a 3rd place finish in the Women’s Super League (WSL), behind winners Chelsea and runners-up Man City.

Arsenal Women finishing 3rd in the WSL ensures they can enter Round 1 qualifying stages of the Women’s Champions 2024-25. Our Gunners, of course, reached this stage last season but failed to qualify to the next round. Hopefully we can go all the way next year Gooners!

But Arsenal Women don’t have time to even digest that as they will be heading to Melbourne, Australia now, to face the A-League Allstars Women.

This is a clash that will draw big numbers to one of Melbourne’s iconic stadium’s, Marvel Stadium, which was one of the main venues for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. Arsenal will be part of a two game clash, in what is being described as “Global football week” in Melbourne, where Newcastle United will also play against some of Australia’s A-league men’s best too.

Full travelling squad confirmed by Arsenal:  Emily Fox, Steph Catley, Kim Little, Frida Maanum, Katie McCabe, Caitlin Foord, Victoria Pelova, Kathrine Kuhl, Alessia Russo, Cloe Lacasse, Teyah Goldie, Kyra Cooney-Cross, Naomi Williams, Sarah Bouhaddi, Vivienne Lia, Katie Reid, Maddy Earl, Laila Harbert, Freya Godfrey
