Women’s Super League comes to Stamford Bridge with free opener against Spurs
Missing top-class women’s football already following the conclusion of the World Cup only yesterday?
If so, then we have some great news that will have you counting down the days to the new Barclays Women’s Super League season already.
Last week it was revealed Chelsea Women’s opening match is a mouth-watering home encounter against newly promoted Tottenham Hotspur Women, and today the news becomes a whole lot bigger.
The venue for this new London derby is Stamford Bridge and on top of that, all tickets are free!
The date for your diary is Sunday 8 September with a 12.30pm kick-off. That weekend is an international break from men’s Premier League fixtures.
This celebration of women’s football at England’s top-level will feature our many returning players who starred in the World Cup in France and if you have never been to a Chelsea Women’s game before, this is your chance to do so for free in one of football’s most famous stadiums.
You can book now up to four tickets per person, all for free, and as we anticipate a full house, please only claim seats if you think you are sure to attend, so as not to deny any fellow Blues the chance to be there.
As well as the 90 minutes of WSL action, as Emma Hayes’ side begin the quest to regain the title they won as recently as 2018, it promises to be a great day out for many reasons – with plenty of entertainment for all the family at the Bridge.
Please note: Chelsea Women’s season tickets will go on sale this Wednesday. This game at Stamford Bridge is included in the season ticket, however you must still claim a free ticket to this game by clicking here. Your Women’s season ticket card will not gain you access to Stamford Bridge.
