Sporting Director Eniola Aluko told avfc.co.uk: “Having secured promotion to the WSL we are delighted to have agreed a two-year agreement with Walsall to play all of our home matches at the Banks’s Stadium.

“At 11,000 Banks’s Stadium will be one of the largest capacity stadiums in the WSL league which is exciting and promising for the future of our club, the players, and the loyal support of our local fanbase.

“Walsall have hosted England women’s national team games in the past, so we are excited to work alongside the club to host regular women’s football fixtures in women’s professional football.”

All Villa’s games at Walsall will be on Saturdays or Sundays with 5:30pm kick offs.
