CLUBS COM­PETE FOR FAIRY­TALE AT NEW YORK

The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY - Matt Bad­cock

ROTHER­HAM UNITED’S New York Sta­dium will host the fi­nale of the sea­son’s big cup com­pe­ti­tion.

The FA WSL Con­ti­nen­tal Tyres Cup fi­nal will be played at the Cham­pi­onship club’s sta­dium on Sun­day, Novem­ber 1.

The quar­ter-fi­nal games kick-off to­day, although Manch­ester City’s game with Ar­se­nal as been post­poned af­ter the Cit­i­zens were charged with field­ing an in­elig­ble player in the last round against Sun­der­land.

It means the de­fence of the tro­phy they won last sea­son, by beat­ing the Gun­ners 1-0, is now in doubt.

This sea­son’s fi­nal, which will bring the cur­tain down on the WSL sea­son, kicks off at 3pm, with tick­ets priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for chil­dren.

A fam­ily ticket for two adults and two chil­dren costs just £10.

The FA head of women’s leagues and com­pe­ti­tions Katie Bra­zier said:“The AESSEAL New York Sta­dium is a fan­tas­tic fa­cil­ity and a great arena to play one of the big­gest women’s matches of the sea­son.

“This sea­son’s com­pe­ti­tion has gone from strength-to-strength, with many clubs re­port­ing record cup at­ten­dances and hugely ex­cit­ing games and per­for­mances in ev­ery round. We are con­fi­dent that this year’s fi­nal will be a fit­ting end to an in­cred­i­ble sea­son.

“We look for­ward to work­ing along­side Rother­ham United and the fi­nal­ists, along with our spon­sor Con­ti­nen­tal Tyres, to make the fi­nal a big suc­cess.”
