The club asked us to let you know about Mikel’s 1000th league match and a special half-time lap of honour by the club’s England women’s team members.
Our women’s team, including continental champions Leah Williamson, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Beth Mead and Rafaelle Souza, will be special guests at this Saturday’s men’s first-team game against Fulham at Emirates Stadium.
The day will be a special enough occasion as we aim to mark Mikel Arteta’s 100th league match in charge with a fourth-straight win, but there will also be an extra bit of stardust on show during half-time as the squad will participate in a lap of honour led by our successful quartet, giving our supporters the chance the show their gratitude, as well as support ahead of the upcoming WSL season.
Williamson skippered England to Euro 2022 glory, with Mead scooping the Player of the Tournament and Golden Boot accolades, with Wubben-Moy also at the forefront of efforts to increase the ease of participation for young girls inspired by their success.
Meanwhile, Souza captained Brazil to Copa America glory, helping her nation lift the trophy without conceding a goal in the process.
The players will take to the Emirates Stadium pitch during the interval of the Cottagers clash, so make sure you stay in your seat to show your appreciation for the squad.
Supporters can also attend our opening two home games of the WSL by snapping up tickets for the home opener against Brighton, as well as the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
