Arsenal have announced that their Champions League quarter final first leg against Wolfsburg will be played at the Emirates Stadium.

The fixture will take place at 20:00 (GMT) on Wednesday 23 March, with capacity for the match limited to 10,000.

The announcement means that both legs of the quarter final tie between Arsenal and Wolfsburg will be played at major stadiums, after the She Wolves confirmed that they will host the Gunners at the VfL Wolfsburg Arena on Thursday 31 March.

The same can be said for PSG versus Bayern Munich in the competition's last eight, with both teams announcing that their home legs would be held at the Parc des Princes and Allianz Arena.

Barcelona versus Real Madrid is also scheduled to be played at Camp Nou in front of a capacity crowd.

Arsenal have already played at the Emirates in this season's Champions League, but suffered a 4-0 defeat to European champions Barcelona in the group stages of the competition. A crowd of 12,232 turned out for the fixture.

Jonas Eidevall's side will return to the Emirates during the weekend sandwiched between their two Champions League legs when they host rivals Tottenham in the WSL.

Tickets for the Champions League clash between Arsenal and Wolfsburg will be priced at £12 for adults and £6 for concessions.
