Battle of Britain as Glasgow City set to take on Arsenal in pre-season friendly


City will welcome Arsenal to Petershill Park, Glasgow, in a match which will surely bring in the crowds, as they play against the best in Britain ahead of the new Premier League season.

City will also travel to Liverpool to face the English side for the second consecutive pre-season, with City finishing 3-0 winners last year.

City head coach Eddie Wolecki Black commented: “Pre-season is a very important time for every club and whilst we have arranged some very challenging matches I think it’s fair to say that the ones against Liverpool and Arsenal will capture the imagination of the public. Of course the Arsenal game will be viewed as a Best of Britain game, however it’s important to treat it for what it is, a pre-season friendly, win, lose or draw that’s all it is.”

The Arsenal side has a number of Scots in their ranks including international defender Jennifer Beattie, midfielder Kim Little and Scotland’s all-time goalscorer Julie Fleeting. While club captain Faye White is one of English football’s most decorated players having won 27 honours in 15 seasons.

The Arsenal match at Petershill Park will kick off at 2pm on Sunday 19th February, with tickets priced at £5 for Adults, £2 for Children and OAP’s.
