This weekend sees a welcome return of matches with the first women’s pre-season friendlies in the build up to the 2020-21 campaign.

Many sides have said they are unable to welcome spectators at this time, so it is advisable to check clubs’ respective social media channels for their up-to-date situation and to potentially avoid a wasted journey.

Where supporters are permitted to attend, FA guidelines state they should be limited to groups of six, whilst also remaining well-spaced from other fans, officials and players.
