West Ham United will travel to reigning FA Women’s Super League champions Arsenal in the opening fixture of the 2019/20 season.
The Hammers’ first contest in the new season will be played on the weekend of 7-8th September.
Matt Beard’s Irons enjoyed an unforgettable maiden campaign in the FA WSL last year, securing a seventh-placed finish and reaching the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.
Excitement for the second season of Women’s Super League football at Rush Green is building and the side will take on Arsenal in the 2019/20 campaign’s opening fixture at Boreham Wood.
Last season, the Irons took the lead twice away to the Gunners thanks to fine finishes by Kate Longhurst, while Claire Rafferty also netted a fantastic free-kick in a narrow 4-3 defeat.
The full and finalised fixture list will be released on Wednesday 10 July as West Ham prepare for a second campaign in the top flight of women’s football in England.
Full opening day 2019/20 FA WSL fixtures:
Arsenal v West Ham United
Birmingham City v Everton
Bristol City v Brighton & Hove Albion
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
