CHELSEA LADIES FACE LONDON DERBY THIS WEEK
There is a chance to support the Chelsea Ladies side in FA Women's Super League action on Thursday evening when they travel to Boreham Wood to take on Arsenal.
Kick-off is 7.45pm and both sides will be looking forward to showcasing the skills and quality of women's professional football on national television when the game is broadcast live on ESPN.
Chelsea Ladies are currently third in the league table, three points ahead of Arsenal who have played two games less. It is the first time the two sides will meet this FA WSL season and it promises to be a London derby not to be missed.
With tickets costing only £5 for an adult and £2.50 for children and concessions, the match offers a perfect family occasion to watch women's professional football at an affordable price.
Prior to seeing the two teams in action, fans aged 5 to 16 years old are invited to take part in a free, interactive fanzone. Games include batak boards, a speed cage, a target shoot inflatable plus a new trailer that houses digital stations and the FA WSL and Cyprus Cup trophies. Arsenal will also display The FA Girls' Youth Cup and the FA Women's Cup trophies.
There will be hair braiding and face painting, all of which will take place outside the stadium from 5.45pm. There will also be a Female Referee Ambassador present, Sasa Ihringova, to deliver practical mini whistler activities. All those who register at the fanzone will get free entry into the game.
