FA WSL Spring Series fixtures released
 Women's Football FA News - 11 Jan 2017
Champions Manchester City will face last season's runners-up Chelsea in the opening weekend of the FA Women's Super League (FA WSL) 1 Spring Series.
The Spring Series is a one-off competition which has been created to bridge the gap between seasons, while the FA WSL transitions from a summer league to a more traditional football calendar.
Each club will play each other once with a trophy awarded to each division's winners. The Spring Series will finish before this summer's Euros.
FA WSL 1 fixtures start on 22nd April, with newly promoted Bristol City facing Reading FC Women in a match which will be played at Ashton Gate, as a double header with the men's team. Last season's FA WSL 2 title winners Yeovil Town will host Liverpool the following day, while Sunderland travel to Birmingham City.
FA WSL 2 clubs will return to action two months earlier, on Saturday 11th February. League newcomers Brighton & Hove Albion, who won promotion from the FA Women's Premier League, will open their account away to London Bees.
The next day, Doncaster Rovers Belles, who were relegated from FA WSL 1 last season, will travel to Sheffield FC while Durham will host Millwall Lionesses. In the remaining fixtures, Aston Villa will play Watford and Oxford United take on Everton.
FA director of football participation and development Kelly Simmons said: "When it was decided to move the FA WSL to traditional football calendar, we knew it was crucial to find a way to give clubs, players and supporters a competition that provided quality matches.
"The clubs have worked hard to build their squads and establish fanbases and the Spring Series will allow them to keep developing on and off the pitch.
"It will also provide our international players with the competitive game time that they need before heading to the Euros in July.
"It's set to be an exciting few months for the domestic women's game with clubs competing for this one-off trophy and the SSE Women's FA Cup Final back at Wembley Stadium in May. It's important that we keep building this momentum ahead of the Euros and for the return of the FA WSL in September."
