Confirmed: When United Women’s season begins
Manchester United Women’s first game of the new WSL campaign away to Tottenham Hotspur will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday 10 September 2022.
Getting under way at 12:30 BST, Marc Skinner’s Reds will play in the league’s season opener for the second year in a row, having previously hosted Reading in the inaugural game of the division’s 2021/22 term.
The match will also be broadcast live on Sky Sports, while a link for United fans to purchase tickets will be released in due course.
Our season-opening venue is also the home to the WSL’s current record attendance of 38,262, set during Spurs’ North London derby with Arsenal in November 2019.
Following a successful and inspiring Euro 2022 campaign on home soil, another bumper attendance will no doubt be expected.

Earlier this week, there was an update on our other trip to face another North London side in this season’s Women’s Super League.
Our away match at Arsenal on the weekend of 19/20 November will be played at the Gunners’ Emirates Stadium.
As well as that, we now know that the Etihad Stadium will be the location for this season’s away league match against Manchester City on the weekend of 10/11 December.
It will be the second time the Manchester derby has been held at the ground after 31,213 supporters watched an opening-weekend clash between the clubs at the start of the 2019/20 campaign.
