Manchester City 1 (Stokes 54) Birmingham City 1 (Mannion pen 6)
Demi Stokes scored a second half equaliser to ensure that newly crowned Champions Manchester City ended their successful campaign with an unbeaten record.
Nick Cushing's side were once again given a hard match by a Birmingham City side whose performance matched that in the recent Continental Tyres Cup Final at the same venue.
Birmingham took the lead after six minutes when Aoife Mannion successfully scored from the penalty spot after Lucy Bronze brought down Andrine Hegerberg, only the fourth time that Manchester City have conceded in the league this season.
The hosts pulled level nine minutes after the interval, when Demi Stokes gave Ann-Katrin Berger no chance with a fine hit to the far top corner from way out on the left.
Neither side could come up with a winner on the day and Manchester City could finally celebrate their title success after the final whistle, when captain Steph Houghton was presented with the WSL trophy.
