The FA is currently urging fans to attend a women’s game at any given level of this pyramid during their Women’s Football Weekend on November 16-17.
Based on the Non-League Day notion that was successful, the weekend is timed to coincide with a pause in the Premier League and English Football League calendars for global matches, and it’s hoped this will develop into an yearly event.
It is going to build on the momentum of last weekend’s launch fittings at the Women’s Super League, which saw the match of the women is watched by more than 62,000 fans during a second break for men football.
A record 31,213 fans saw the first Manchester derby in the WSL in the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, whereas more than 24,000 watched Chelsea carry on Spurs at Stamford Bridge, along with similar numbers will probably be anticipated in November, using a north London derby at the brand new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a Merseyside derby and Manchester United’s visit to Chelsea on the program.
In a statement, the FA’s women’s professional match director Kelly Simmons said:”We’re excited to announce that the first ever Women’s Soccer Weekend, for what is certain to be another fantastic moment in a year that has witnessed huge momentum behind the growth in popularity of women’s soccer.
”After in the Dramatic FIFA Women’s World Cup and opening Barclays FA Women’s Super League weekend, then there’s never been a better time to see the local group, and we encourage all supporters to become involved in any respect levels of the pyramid on November 16-17.”
One of the fittings on offer from the Women’s Championship that weekend would be Durham against London Bees and Crystal Palace vs London City Lionesses, and there will also be a full programme of cup and all league matches farther the girls’s pyramid.
