FA announce designated Women’s Football Weekend on 16-17 November

A record-breaking crowd saw Manchester City and Manchester United in action on the opening day.

The opening weekend of the 2019/20 Barclays FA Women's Super League smashed attendance records as the momentum from the FIFA WWC this summer continues at a pace.

In recognition of the growing popularity of the women’s game, The FA have announced a Women’s Football Weekend on 16-17 November, and are calling on supporters to attend a women’s match at any level in the pyramid during a weekend when both the Premier Leagie and EFL are paused due to the men's international fixtures.

The announcement of Women's Football Weekend, which will become an annual event, comes just days after an historic opening weekend for the Barclays FA Women’s Super League with more than 62,000 supporters attending matches. 

Kelly Simmons, The FA’s director of women’s professional game said: “We are excited to announce the first ever Women’s Football Weekend, for what is sure to be another great moment in a year that has seen huge momentum behind the growth in popularity of women’s football.

“Following on from a record-breaking FIFA Women’s World Cup and opening Barclays FA Women's Super League weekend, there has never been a better time to visit your local team, and we encourage all supporters to get involved at all levels of the pyramid on 16-17 November.”
