Arsenal Women will play Chelsea in a pre-season game on Sunday, August 1 as part of The Mind Series.

It will act as a double header with Arsenal Women kicking the day off at 12.15 followed by an Arsenal v Chelsea men's fixture at 3pm. 

Funds raised from the series will be split between Mind and each of the club’s charitable foundations who all deliver projects to support mental health and wellbeing in communities both at home and overseas so in Arsenal's case the Arsenal Foundation. 

£5 from the sale of each match ticket will be donated to Mind and The Arsenal Foundation with 25 per cent of this amount being donated to Mind and 75% being donated to The Arsenal Foundation. 

Each organisation will use its donation to support mental health and wellbeing projects in communities both at home and overseas.

Tickets for the game will not go on general sale but only for Arsenal and Arsenal Women members on the Arsenal website it says: "Please note: Arsenal Women's members will shortly receive an email detailing how tickets can be purchased."
