The FA’s plans announced this week to make WSL 1 a full-time league of up to 14 teams will no doubt result in many officials, players and fans having plenty to say on the matter but hopefully there will be just as much to talk about concerning the on-field action.
The second weekend of the WSL campaign is another long one, again starting on a Friday evening for Liverpool, this time with the visit of Reading. While the Reds will look to make it back to back wins after their Merseyside derby victory, the Royals will want to recover from the home defeat to Sunderland.
There are fixtures throughout Saturday, kicking off with the match of the day as Man City meet Arsenal in a lunchtime start for the BT Sport cameras, with both teams having won their opening games.
Second game of the day is at 3pm, when Sheffield FC host London Bees, as both sides seek out a first point of the season in WSL 2.
There’s an early evening South West derby, with Bristol City home to Yeovil Town, where the local rivals will be keen to net their first goals of the campaign. The FAWSL has a live stream of the clash on its Facebook page.
Last but by no means least is Sunderland versus Chelsea, at the Black Cats new home of South Shields FC.
That leaves just the one top flight encounter for Sunday, with Birmingham City entertaining Everton in a 12.30 kick off.
There are four more games in WSL 2 though, beginning with Brighton’s noon start against Durham at the Sussex FA ground in Lancing.
Just the two standard 2pm starts with Doncaster home to Millwall and Spurs making their home WSL debut against Aston Villa.
The weekend then finishes when Watford welcome Oxford United to their Kings Langley FC base.
