The 2019 Women’s World Cup in France saw the game reach new levels of interest after a cumulative total of 28.1m tuned into the BBC coverage of the tournament as a whole.
England’s games set as many as four UK television records for women’s football, while the 11.7m peak audience for the Lionesses against the United States ensured the dramatic semi-final clash was the most watched UK television broadcast of the year.
Many of the players who starred at the World Cup call the WSL home.
That includes most of the England squad like Ellen White, Steph Houghton and Fran Kirby; returning international stars like Vivianne Miedema, Danielle van de Donk and Ji So-yun; as well as new faces like Jackie Groenen (below), Guro Reiten and Leonie Maier.
The WSL, which is the only fully professional top flight women’s league in Europe, welcomes Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur to the fold this year after both teams earned promotion from the second tier Women’s Championship last season.
Each club has been active in the transfer market this summer and are expected to do well.
If you watched the Women’s World Cup and enjoyed it and want to keep following the players and get into domestic scene, or if you’re simply after an affordable way to watch live football in an enjoyable atmosphere this season, the Women’s Super League will be perfect for you.
Most single game tickets are priced at £7 or less for adults – some can be as low as £5, while many have great rates for kids, seniors, students and families. Even Chelsea, who offer the most expensive single adult tickets in the league, are only charging £9.
Season tickets offer even greater value. At Liverpool, for example, an adult season ticket is just £35. It is even cheaper at Everton, while West Ham are selling them for £25, albeit standing only. Manchester United will let you into WSL games all season for £39, while Chelsea, despite having the most expensive single game tickets, sell season tickets for £49.
Arsenal is where you will pay the most for a season ticket. But even £70 is not expensive and it also buys you a membership for the season, which comes with additional merchandise and things like priority access to special events and an invitation to the end of season fan forum.
