The FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board has confirmed the decision to end the 2019/20 season for the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and the FA Women’s Championship, with immediate effect.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board has been in regular consultation with clubs and key stakeholders from across both leagues to identify the most suitable and appropriate way to conclude the 2019/20 season, and to give clubs and players the clarity and support they need at this time.
Following overwhelming feedback from the clubs, the decision to bring an end to the 2019/20 season was made in the best interest of the women’s game. This will also enable clubs, the FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board and The FA to plan, prepare and focus on next season when football returns for the 2020/21 campaign.
Supporting the welfare of the clubs and players will continue to be our primary concern throughout this process, which also involved a robust and thorough examination of the logistical, operational and financial challenges that the game currently faces.
Following full and thorough consultation with the clubs, the FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board has discussed various recommendations which will be sent to The FA Board to determine the most appropriate sporting outcome for the 2019/20 season. This will include identifying the entries for the 2020/21 UEFA Women’s Champions League, which would be based on sporting merit from the 2019/20 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season.
We are not in a position to comment further until the FA Board has had sufficient time to consider all of the recommendations and options.
Following the decision to terminate the 2019/20 WSL season, we shall issue a pro rata credit to all Season Ticket Holders for our final four home fixtures.
These funds can be applied against your 2020/21 Season Ticket. You will not need to do anything - your seat will be secured and we will contact you in due course about completing your renewal.
Any Season Ticket Holder who wishes to request a refund instead of having this credit set against next season’s Season Ticket will be able to do so. Details on how to request this refund will be emailed to all Season Ticket Holders.
Details of the process for Season Ticket renewals for the 2020/21 season will be sent to you when appropriate to do so.
Supporters who purchased General Admission match tickets for our remaining home matches against Birmingham City, Chelsea, Bristol City and Reading at The Hive should email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a refund.
We share fans’ disappointment that the 2019/20 WSL season will not resume. The safety of players, staff and fans is of paramount importance and we shall be working with all concerned to return to play when it is safe and appropriate to do so.
