Disappointment struck Arsenal Women fans today as their FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup quarter-final clash against London City Lionesses was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Match officials were forced to make the call following a pitch inspection at 2:30pm. With the playing surface deemed unplayable, the difficult decision to postpone the game was reached.

While the news will undoubtedly frustrate supporters eager to see the Gunners progress, a re-arranged date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course. London City Lionesses will be responsible for directly contacting ticket holders with further information.
