Arsenal will kick off the new 2021-22 Women's Super League season with a mouthwatering London derby with title holders Chelsea on the weekend of September 4/5.
They met three times in all competitions in 2020-21, with Chelsea winning two of the games with one draw in the Women's Super League at Meadow Park as Beth Mead put the Gunners ahead before a freak own goal from Lotte Wubben-Moy saw Chelsea come away with a point.
That game with the Blues will take place between the Champions League second round qualifying games should Arsenal make it through the first round against Okzhetpez in Moscow on August 18 and if they win that game they will play the winner of PSV Eindhoven and CSKA Moscow.
Jonas Eidevall's first away league game in charge of the Gunners will take place at Reading on September 12.
The Gunners have a tough first month of the campaign playing last seasons Champions and runners up with Manchester City to come at the end of the month at home on September 26.
