Promotions in Women's Football Pyramid confirmed
 Women's Football FA News - 2 Jun 2021
 
The FA can confirm that the Upward Club Movement process within the Women's Football Pyramid, which was opened via application in April, has now been determined by the Women's Football Board following the curtailment of the 2020-21 season in Tiers 3-6.
 
All clubs participating in Tiers 3 to 6 (inclusive) of the Women's Pyramid were permitted to apply for upward movement, with successful clubs moving into the league or division immediately above the Tier in which they currently operate.
 
As a result, FA Women's National League Northern Premier side, Sunderland, and FA Women's National League Southern Premier side, Watford, have been successful in applying for upward movement and will compete in the FA Women's Championship next season.
 
Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brighouse Town will move up into Tier 3 (FA WNL Northern Premier), along with Southampton FC and Ipswich Town (FA WNL Southern Premier).
 
Full details of upwards club movement are as follows:
 
FA WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP (TIER 2):

SOUTH WEST LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION

Applications were marked against a criteria weighted 75% on-field and 25% off-field. The on-field criteria considered aspects such as points per game, cup performances and goal difference, across the last two seasons. The off-field section marked clubs on areas such as club structure, workforce and facilities. Clubs applying to move into the FA Women's Championship, also had to demonstrate that they would be able to meet the required licence criteria.
 
Clubs were recently informed of the outcome of their applications and successful clubs will now be preparing during the off-season ahead of the 2021-22 season. The FA would like to thank all clubs who applied following an impressive set of applications; and congratulate all those clubs who made successful applications as well as thank Leagues and County FAs for their support.
 
Decisions on Promotion Pool applications (movement from Tier 7 to Tier 6) and other movements within the Women's Football Pyramid will be made shortly and confirmed to clubs, allowing full league allocations to be confirmed in due course.
