The fixtures for Phase Two of the 2021-22 Genero Adran Premier campaign have been confirmed. This season is the first time in the top tier of women's football a split-league format has been introduced, with Phase One seeing all eight teams face each other home and away.
The league now splits into a Championship Conference and a Plate Conference with four teams in each section. The Championship Conference will compete to become the first winners of the Genero Adran Premier and secure a place in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
The winner of the Plate Conference will also receive a special award, while the team finishing bottom will be relegated to the Genero Adran North/Genero Adran South next season. These mini-leagues form Phase Two of the competition.
Aberystwyth, Cardiff City, Cardiff Met and Swansea City all secured their place in the Championship Conference while Barry Town United, Pontypridd Town, Port Talbot Town and The New Saints make up the Plate Conference.
Each team will play each other in their division twice - home and away - which will see six rounds of fixtures in Phase Two.
