FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup Fixtures Announced

  • +1

The fixtures for this season’s FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup have been announced with the competition kicking off in July.

There will be an extra knock-out stage from 2015, with Quarter-Finals introduced after the group games.  The teams finishing in the top two in each group plus the two best third-placed teams will progress to the Quarter-Finals.

The newly-rebranded competition will begin after the FA WSL mid-season break for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Manchester City won last season’s cup, with Izzy Christiansen’s goal enough to overcome Arsenal 1-0 at Wycombe Wanderers’ Adams Park.

Kelly Simmons, FA director of national game and women’s football, said: “We’ve looked to freshen up the competition this year and by introducing the extra knock-out stage, we think it will make the cup even more exciting for both supporters and clubs. Continental Tyres have been a big supporter of the women’s game since the start of the FA WSL in 2011 and we look forward to working with them this season to make this season’s competition the best yet.”

Peter Robb, Continental Tyres UK, marketing communications manager, said: “Continental Tyres are delighted to be part of this exciting competition for the fifth year running, and we are looking forward to what promises to be the most successful tournament to date.”

“The continual rise in attendance figures over recent tournaments clearly demonstrates the growing appetite for the Women’s game in this country. Our fifth season brings an even bigger tournament with the addition of an extra knock out round, putting even more focus on the teams’ performance, as they compete to be in the season’s concluding cup final.”

The Final date and venue will be announced in the coming weeks.  More information about the competition and full fixture details can be found at
