Newcastle United travel to Oxford United on Sunday for their FA Women's Cup Fourth Round fixture which will be will be played at the Kassam Stadium, home to Oxford United FC.
Oxford caused the shock of the third round by beating Charlton Athletic 2-1. Newcastle also progressed with a 2-1 win against another South West Combination side, Plymouth Argyle.
Newcastle captain Sarah Wilson said: "We've earned our right to get to this stage and were expecting a tough game. We don't know a lot about our competition so we must head into the game with a positive attitude, hoping to progress further in the competition.
"Anything can happen in the FA Cup. Getting the chance to play at the Kassam Stadium is also a massive bonus. This could potentially be one of the biggest games we get to play in so we are going to make the most of it."
Oxford United Ladies have a very close link with the men's club and both teams were delighted when the Club announced that the ladies could play this FA Cup tie at the Kassam Stadium.
Newcastle Chairman Phil Eadon added: "Everyone at NUWFC is looking forward to our FA Cup match against Oxford United LFC. Both teams will be up for the Cup and we will have to be at our best to progress in the competition.
"I have to say a big thank you to the Chairman and team at Oxford United FC for the support they have given to their ladies team and allowing the game to be played at the men's Kassam Stadium. It is a sign of how far some men's football clubs have progressed to embracing the girls and women's side of football. They are a key part of the community and female football is growing fast. Games like this provide many opportunities to promote positive female role models into our local communities."
