Reports that The FA is open to Premier League running the Women’s Super League.

The BBC has today reported that the Football Association is open to the Premier League or Football League running the Women’s Super League.

In the top two tiers of English women’s football (Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship), eleven of the clubs make up the twenty two clubs.

The Football Association has been unable to find a title sponsor for the league which was launched in 2011 and want to avoid the league going bust – which happened in the US with the Women’s Professional Soccer league.

The BBC says that The FA will not hand over control of the league unless it suits all the teams, but it does not see itself running the WSL as long-term option.

The idea was discussed at a recent meeting between the clubs and The FA, along with opposition for introducing a home-grown quota of English players in the league and too much resources into the England team rather than the WSL.

The new Women’s Super League season starts in September with Chelsea v Man City among the opening games. Check out all the FA Women’s Super League fixtures for the 2018-19 season. The FA Women’s Championship 2018/19 season fixtures have also been announced.
