Everton Women To Begin League Campaign At Goodison Park

Everton Women will begin their 2021/22 Barclays FA Women’s Super League campaign at Goodison Park for the visit of Manchester City.

The fixture is set to take place on Saturday 4 September with a scheduled 1.30pm (BST) kick-off.

Ticket details for the match will be announced on Everton channels in due course.

The Blues' opening two fixtures have been selected for live television broadcast by the BBC, with the trip to Chelsea the following weekend due to take place on Sunday 12 September (12.30pm BST).

Meanwhile, two more of Everton's WSL fixtures will be screened live on Sky Sports. The Club's return to Walton Hall Park on Saturday 25 September against Birmingham City will kick-off at 11.30am on Sky Sports Premier League.

Into October and the trip to face Arsenal on Sunday 10 October will begin at 3pm and will be shown on Sky Sports Premier League.

The league opener against Manchester City will be Willie Kirk’s side’s second time in a space of a year playing at Goodison Park, having hosted Chelsea in the 2019/20 FA Cup quarter-final in September 2020.

The Blues were victorious that day, beating Chelsea 2-1 and Club Captain Danielle Turner says the team cannot wait to be heading back to the Grand Old Lady.

“It’s great,” she told evertonfc.com. “All the girls were buzzing when we found out we were playing our opening game there and I’m sure all the new girls are excited for their first taste of Goodison!

“It’s a tough but really exciting start to the season. Manchester City are a fantastic side and one of the teams it is important we start taking points off if we are going to be successful.

“The FA Cup game at Goodison was one of the highlights of last season.

“It always feels that little bit more special playing at Goodison and hopefully it will be the same again.

“It has been such a long time without the fans, and we can’t wait for them to be back in the stadium.

“I’m sure they are itching to be back, too.

“Hopefully a lot of Evertonians will come down to support us on the day. We can’t wait!”
