The Ladies are currently in a training camp in the USA, as the FA WSL is in its mid-season break and the Gunners will play a friendly against Seattle Reign on Thursday the 26th of May at 7:30 PT (3:30am UK time).
The Reign are managed by former Arsenal Ladies’ manager, Laura Harvey, and have won the last two seasons’ NWSL Shield before losing twice in the championship game to FC Kansas City.
They also have a former Arsenal Ladies player in Kim Little and two other British players: Rachel Corsie from Scotland and Jessica Fishlock from Wales.
It will be a good test for the Ladies in preparation for the second half of the season, where they will need to hit the ground running with seven games played during that month. They are currently trailing the League Leaders Manchester City by 11 points.
