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.
