Goodison Park will host its first ever Barclays FA Women’s Super League Merseyside derby when Everton and Liverpool clash on Sunday 9 February (2pm kick-off).

It will be the second meeting of the two teams to be hosted at a first-team stadium this season following Everton’s 1-0 victory in front of a derby record crowd of 23,500 at Anfield in November.

“We’re delighted we have the opportunity to play at Goodison Park,” Blues boss Willie Kirk told evertonfc.com. “Big games like Merseyside derbies are the ones you want to be involved in as a player and manager and we have the opportunity to play this historic fixture on the biggest stage.”

Liverpool manager Vicky Jepson added: “It’s fantastic that we’ve got another match in which to showcase the women’s game on Merseyside.

“The Anfield derby was a terrific occasion and I hope as many Reds as possible will cross the park to cheer on the team at another historic football venue.”

Tickets for non-members are £6 for adults and £3 for over-65s and juniors.
