AFTER the fixtures for the Women’s Super League (WSL) were announced yesterday morning, it was revealed that Tottenham will host north London rivals and WSL champions Arsenal on November 17.
The game will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and is one of a few fixtures that will be played in a stadium typically played in by the men’s first team.
The move is one that is looking to enhance the popularity of women’s football after a record-breaking World Cup in France during the summer and England’s superb run to the semi-final where they lost to eventual winners the United States.
The full fixture list for the 2019/20 WSL had some interesting opening day fixtures that were released last week.
Newly promoted Manchester United face off in a Manchester derby against City.
As well as this, last season’s champions Arsenal face FA cup finalists West Ham when the season opens on September 7.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will welcome WSL newcomers Tottenham to Stamford Bridge a day later on September 8 in another opening weekend derby.
Last season’s top two clash at Meadow Park on October 27 as Arsenal host Manchester City, with the return game pencilled in for February 2 at City’s Academy Stadium.
If the title race goes down to the final day of the season, two of the 2018/19 top three are at home — Arsenal hosting Everton and Chelsea facing Liverpool, while City are away at Brighton.
