Arsenal has announced that Swedish international forward Stina Blackstenius has signed a new contract with the club. The 28-year-old striker has been a key player for Arsenal since joining from BK Hacken in January 2022. Stina has scored an impressive 43 goals in 83 appearances during her career.

Stina made a strong debut from the bench against Manchester United on January 19, 2022, and scored her first goal for Arsenal against the same team on February 5, 2022. Renowned for her instinctive goal-scoring ability, she was Arsenal’s top scorer in both the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons, scoring 18 goals each.

One of her most memorable moments occurred in the 2024 FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup Final, when she scored an extra-time winner over Chelsea. This dramatic goal secured Arsenal’s trophy for the second year in a row, having also scored in the 2023 final.

“I’m so happy to have signed a new contract here at Arsenal,” said Stina. “In the space of two and a half years, this club has come to feel like home – that’s thanks to my team-mates and the staff of course, but most of all because of our wonderful supporters. There is such a special atmosphere around this club and we are all hungry to achieve more together. Your support means the world to me and I can’t wait to get back here to go again next season.”

She’s incredibly hard-working and brings so much to the team with her clever running and physicality. I know she’ll continue to be a huge part of what we’re building here at the club.”
