Ready For The Emirates? Arsenal On Verge of Selling Out... AGAIN!

Arsenal WFC are the most successful team in the WSL, with the team donning 60 trophies and counting despite being founded in 1987. The North London team have won 15 League titles along with the highly esteemed UEFA Women's Champions League, which no other women's team in English history has won so far.

Years of great accomplishments have allowed for this team to create a loyal fanbase in which fans follow the team home and away, this is clearly represented in this teams absolute domination in ticket sales as well as online proweress. Although the Emirates Stadium only has a capacity of 60,704, which is a drop in the bucket compared to Manchester United's Old Trafford and Tottenham Hotspurs Tottenham Stadium, the Emirates has set a new record in the WSL every time the Arsenal Women's team have played there. Most notably, the current WSL attendance record was Arsenal v Chelsea in which the Gunners won 4-1 and had a total of 59,042 seated.

Arsenal also have a star studded team, the Captain of Lionesses Leah Williamson is a childhood gooner and regularly plays for the Gunners as a defender or midfielder. Since winning the EURO 22, Leah has become an international star, one who has started to get the flowers she deserves. Unfortunately a serious injury to her ACL in April last year meant she missed the world cup but Arsenal fans online are raving about her return to the team. This can be said for Beth Mead who was top goalscorer and best player of EURO 22 and Vivianne Miedema who won the EUROs with the Netherlands in 2017. Arsenal have some of the best players in the world, drawing fans to the team.

So should this star studded, accomplished team be playing at the Emirates as much as possible? The constant breaking of attendance records for both home and away support of Arsenal WFC screams yes, telling us that this team is a beloved part of the Arsenal core. Arsenal itself has even erected player flags of the women's team around the Emirates, something they have done for the men's team since the Emirates was built. In truth, Arsenal WFC is the blueprint of what many other women's clubs should aspire to be, one with a loyal fanbase who is steadily growing and selling out one of the best and biggest stadiums in the country.
