WOMEN IN FOOTBALL NAMED TOURNAMENT PARTNERS AS ENGLAND HOST SPAIN, GERMANY AND CANADA IN ARNOLD CLARK CUP

Women in Football has been confirmed as the official partner for an exciting new tournament pitting England Women against three other top international sides as they prepare to host Euro 2022.

The first Arnold Clark Cup takes place in February 2022, giving Lionesses fans across the country a chance to see their side take on Germany, Spain and Olympic champions Canada.

The partnership results from a pledge for WIF's #GetOnside campaign by Pitch International, the worldwide sports marketing group behind the cup. It offers a platform for the Women in Football message to reach out to a wide audience in the UK and beyond.

Kicking off at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium on 17 February, the round-robin tournament moves on to Carrow Road, Norwich on 20 February, and concludes on 23 February at Molineux, the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A huge moment

Women in Football Chair Ebru Köksal said: "The Arnold Clark Cup is shaping up to be a fantastic competition at a huge moment for England and for our game more widely. All of us at Women in Football are thrilled to be playing a part.

"As the official tournament partner, WIF extends our warmest wishes to the players and supporters of Canada, England, Germany and Spain. We look forward to some great football and another step forward for gender equality in the game."

Pitch International's Director of Women's Sport Cat Watson said: "Pitch International is excited to welcome Women in Football as an official tournament partner of the upcoming Arnold Clark Cup. We're big fans of their #GetOnside campaign and the impressive impact it is having promoting equality on and off the pitch, so we look forward to working closely with WIF on the inaugural event that promises to deliver a fantastic display of the very best of women's football."

Buzzing

The Arnold Clark Cup is expected to play an important role in the Lionesses' preparations for Euro 2022, which takes place in England in July.

England and Chelsea forward Fran Kirby said: "We’re buzzing to take on three of the world’s best sides at home. Canada are reigning Olympic champions, Spain have some outstanding players in their squad, and obviously it doesn’t get much bigger an occasion than England v Germany.

"It’s a special opportunity to play world-class opposition in front of our supporters, so we’ll be determined to be firing on all cylinders."

With more than half of the tournament's match tickets priced at £10 or under, the hosts are expecting bumper crowds, and fans are urged to guarantee their seats early.
