This weekend marks the first ever FA Women’s Football Weekend and it coincides perfectly with our women’s fixture against Bristol City Women at Madejski Stadium on Sunday.
With the men’s international fixtures creating a break in the Premier League and EFL calendars, the FA are calling on supporters to capitalise on the opportunity to back Women’s Football Weekend and to attend a women’s match at any level.
The weekend marks a busy schedule of women’s fixtures in both the Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship and the FA are encouraging fans to attend a women's match near them this Saturday or Sunday, to celebrate and support women’s football.
The Women’s Super League fixtures are being played on Sunday and as well as Kelly Chambers’ Reading FC Women hosting Bristol City at Madejski, Tottenham take on Arsenal and Liverpool go up against Everton in their respective derbies; Chelsea entertain Manchester United; West Ham travel to Manchester City and Brighton and Hove Albion host Birmingham City.
Back in September, the opening weekend of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League saw more than 62,000 supporters attended fixtures across the country. That historical opening weekend saw Reading FC Women take all 3 points away at Liverpool after an epic 40-yard free-kick from England Lionesses most capped player Fara Williams.
The focus on women’s football has, quite rightly, never been bigger and the weekend’s record attendance at a sold-out Wembley Stadium where 77,768 turned up to watch the Lionesses take on Germany is testament to that.
Supporting Reading FC Women this Women’s Football Weekend could not be easier, as Season Ticket holders for the men’s team are reminded that they can attend women’s games for FREE by using their Season Ticket card on arrival at Madejski Stadium.
