Tottenham and Arsenal will face off in the Women’s Super League north London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium later this month.

Spurs Women usually play their home games at The Hive, a 6,500-seater stadium which is also home to Barnet and FA Women's Championship side London Bees.

But the north London derby warrants a change of venue, as it did last season when a league-record crowd of 38,262 watched the WSL's clash between the two rivals in November 2019. Arsenal won 2-0 that day.

The match on March 27 will be held without spectators due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Arsenal this season won the reverse fixture - which was not hosted at the Emirates Stadium - 6-1 before also beating Spurs in the League Cup, a win on penalties after a 2-2 draw.

Spurs Women are currently on a four-match losing run and face Reading and Bristol City before the Gunners make the short trip across north London.
