'Fans make the experience even more special'

Speaking when the news of the first two rounds of fixtures was announced, Kelly Simmons, Director of the Women’s Professional Game, said: 

"Fans have had to wait a while to see some live action and being able to announce the first two rounds of fixtures ahead of so many other leagues was something we really pushed for to build up the excitement ahead of the season starting.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing our players back on the field to show off their talent and showcase the very best of what the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship has to offer. My hope is that they will be joined by supporters in our stadiums soon, because fans make the matchday experience even more special.”
