A pretty good week for women’s football…   Leave a comment

It was a pretty good week for women’s football this week.

It began 2 days ago with the FA announcing that in August this year the women’s FA Cup Final would be held at Wembley for the first time ever. Not bad, it only took 44 years from when it was first contested to get the upgrade.

I’m positive the venue will be suitably packed for the game, no matter which two teams get there….

Following on from that the FA announced that it had been working with BT Sports to ‘increase’ the amount of coverage and broadcast time for the Women’s game on TV and would be continuing to broadcast live select FA WSL Div 1 games and cup compertitions.

At last but certainly not least England’s women won the Cyprus Cup by beating Canada 1-0 in the final. Arsenal’s Lianne Sanderson bagged England’s winning goal seeing England lift the trophy for the 3rd time in it’s history, beating Canada on each occasion.
