WSL final-day fixtures moved
The final round of Barclays Women’s Super League matches will now all be played on Saturday 27 May.
Previously slated for Sunday 28 May, the move to switch the final-day fixtures ensures maximum publicity and attendances for the women’s game after what has been a record-breaking campaign.
It also means the last round of WSL matches will now not clash with the Premier League’s final day, which takes place that weekend.
All games will have a 15:00 BST kick-off time, with United Women taking on Liverpool away from home.
The final match of the season could be vital for Marc Skinner’s team too, with the Reds currently occupying top spot in the league, above holders Chelsea.
The Blues do have a game in hand on United, but the two sides lock horns this weekend (Sunday 12 March), in a 12:30 GMT kick-off that could have a massive bearing on the title race.
A RECORD-BREAKING SEASON
Since the 2022 European Championship, in which the England Lionesses triumphed – how could you forget? – attendances at WSL matches have sky-rocketed.
It has been reported that the number of supporters going to WSL matches has increased by 200 per cent, in comparison to the 2021/22 season.
At United, we have broken our home record women's attendance twice over the last year.
An impressive 20,241 fans came to watch United Women’s 3-1 win over Everton in March 2022 at Old Trafford, before the Reds were cheered on by 30,196 spectators as we defeated Aston Villa 5-0 at the Theatre of Dreams in December.
We are aiming to eclipse that record again this month, as we welcome West Ham to Old Trafford for a WSL clash.
