Arsenal Ladies kicking off the first Pro Super League – Any budding Goonerettes want to join?

This Sunday, the newly restructured FA Women’s Super League, featuring Arsenal, will kick off an historic season when it becomes fully professional for the first time. More and more column inches are being given over to Ladies Football, and there is much more television coverage as well so we can see this is growing steadily in popularity.

To mark the start of the season, The FA has created a film to inspire the next generation of female footballers and celebrate the realisation that girls of all ages can now aspire to have a career in football.

So if you know any girls that are good at football, make sure they see this video and see that nothing is impossible. Who dares to dream?

 

The league starts at 12.30pm on Sunday as Arsenal go head-to-head against Liverpool on the BBC Sport Red Button. At 2.00pm, last year’s FA WSL and SSE Women’s FA Cup winners Chelsea take on Manchester City live on BT Sport 3.
All of the opening weekend fixtures can be found at www.thefa.com/wsl and games will be broadcast throughout the season on BT Sport, BBC and The FA WSL Facebook page. Tickets to all league games throughout the season are available at www.ticketstores.co.uk/fawsl.

  1. Not sure how bad this sounds, but I have zero interest in ladies football. I’ve given it a go, but it’s just painful to watch. The only entertainment I get is seeing how bad they are, especially the keepers! Good luck to Arsenal ladies, but it’s not for me.

    1. That pretty much sums up how I feel about it.

      I’ve tried Arsenal Ladies and England Ladies, but it just does nothing for me whatsoever, even my wife and daughter can’t watch it!

  2. The team are called Arsenal Women not Arsenal Ladies. Just putting the record straight.

    1. I guess that makes sense, it’s hardly ladylike playing football.

  3. Here in States we have women’s professional league, 2nd division NWSL (team about 1hr from my city) and college women’s teams; all on tv!

    Perhaps that’s why national team is excellent compared to the atrocious drudgery of US men’s national side. I’m embarrassed by men’s national team here; shockingly poor and unwatchable to be honest.

  4. the cynic in me says the arsenal women will fare a good deal better than their male counterparts this season . i would put 50 pence on the arsenal ladies to win this league this season .and i am not encouraging betting in any way , shape or form , i detest all things betting , but i think the girls will do us proud.

  5. I support them 100%
    anything to promote and encourage girls to get into sports and fitness
