FOOTBALL: BIRMINGHAM City Ladies will kick off the new Spring Series summer season with a home fixture against Sunderland Ladies on April 23.
The Blues will play a total of five home matches at The Automated Group Technology Stadium in Damson Way, with Liverpool coming to town on May 7.
The club’s second fixture of the season will see them travel to Notts County on April 30 and their third match of the one-off series will see them travel to 2016 Women’s Super League champions Manchester City Women.
Marc Skinner’s side end the summer campaign with back-to-back home matches against Yeovil Town Ladies on May 31 before hosting Chelsea Ladies on June 6.
The Spring Series is a one-off competition to be played between April and June for FA Women’s Super League 1 and 2 as the FA WSL transitions into a winter league.
There will be no promotion or relegation and each team will compete for the Spring Series trophy.
The FA have implemented the Spring Series in order to keep competitive football in the women’s game throughout the summer months and the competition will also provide competitive playing time for the England internationals before they compete in next summer’s UEFA Women’s Euros tournament in the Netherlands.
Blues fans can buy early bird tickets for all five home matches starting at just £25 for adults and £14 for children and over 65s.
Family tickets are also available for £65 for two adults and two children and £35 for one adult and one child.
The Early Bird window ends on January 31. For more information visit www.birminghamcityladiesfc.co.uk.
