The Women’s Super League could see its first-ever game held at Anfield this season, with an agreement reportedly “on the radar.”
The WSL is going from strength to strength, with the women’s game only increasing in popularity following this summer’s thrilling World Cup in France.
Liverpool FC Women begin their WSL campaign on September 8, with Vicky Jepson’s side hosting Reading FC Women at Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Jepson said the aim is for Anfield to host a fixture this season, but she stressed the importance of making it an occasion to treasure:
“We just need to make sure it’s the right time, right date and right fixture.
“It was great [in the semi-final against Arsenal]. We opened up the Kop and it was full.
“We will look forward to maybe that happening again.”
City’s Etihad clash with rivals Man United will kick off the 2019/20 WSL season on September 7, in what is expected to be a memorable day.
Jepson’s team will be looking to improve on last season’s eighth-place finish, edging somewhere towards the top end of the table.
