However, should Arsenal or Manchester City exit the UEFA Women’s Champions League in Round 1 or 2, they will enter the FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup at the Group Stage and will be drawn in an existing group of four clubs in the appropriate geographical grouping.

The Group Stage will run from 1-2 October through to 17-18 December, with the Quarter-Finals scheduled for 25-26 January, the Semi-Finals 8-9 February, and the Final on the weekend of 4-5 March.
