The venues for this year's FA Women's Cup semi finals have been selected, as clubs compete for a place in the Wembley Final.
Goodison Park will host Everton v Notts County on Sunday 3rd May at 2pm. Everton, who reached last season's Final, are the only FA Women's Super League (WSL) 2 side left in the competition and will face a strong Notts County side at Goodison.
FA WSL 1 early league leaders Chelsea will take on Manchester City at Wycombe Wanderers the following day [Monday 4th May] at 2pm. Manchester City will be looking for a repeat of their FA WSL Continental Cup Final success last season, where they beat Arsenal 1-0 at Adams Park.
This year's Final will be played at Wembley Stadium connected by EE for the first time in the competition's history, on Saturday 1st August (3pm kick off).
Ticketing details for the semi final ties will be announced next week.
Last year's competition was won by Arsenal, who beat Everton 2-0 at MK Dons with goals from Kelly Smith and Yukari Kinga, in front of a crowd of more than 15,000 supporters.
Everton captain Michelle Hinnigan said: "It's absolutely amazing news. It's always been a dream of ours to play at Goodison Park but none of the current team have had a chance to play competitively there.
"I've taken part in a charity game there around four years ago, but to play competitively in the semi final of the FA Cup is incredible. We hope the occasion will bring us lots of support and allow us to show the Blues' fans how much the quality of women's football has improved."
Chelsea and England striker Eniola Aluko said: "It would be great for us to get a good crowd down at Adams Park. Games don't get bigger than this one; Chelsea versus Manchester City is always a big game, whether it's men's football, women's football or youth football.
"With the additional carrot of a Wembley final, we all know it's going to be a massive game and it's one we're all looking forward to."
