New sponsor will help Burnley Ladies
The final of the competition will now take place at Wembley Stadium for the first time on August 1st.
A seven-figure sum will be committed to the women’s game, ring-fencing funding to create a UK-wide programme of girls-only football activity.
More than 100 girls aged seven to 11 from schools across the country were invited to Wembley for a coaching session, a stadium tour and a Q&A with senior players, including Burnley-born former England keeper Rachel Brown-Finnis.
Energy providers SSE are the new title sponsors of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, investing in the provision and profile of girls and Women’s football as part of ground-breaking four-year deal.
