FA WSL - Women's Super League

 Women's Super League

An initial eight teams compete in the FA Women's Super League, which will replace the FA Women's Premier League as the highest level of women's football in England.

The top two spots of the league will qualify for the UEFA Women's Champions League the next season. So the inaugural 2011 season will be used to determine the English 2012-13 UEFA CL participants.

FA WSL - Competition Format

 Women's Super League

The Women's Super League will consist of eight clubs and the season will be played over the summer months. Initially the league was described as professional, with the top four players on each team being paid an annual salary in excess of £20,000. However, in November 2010 it was confirmed that the WSL will be semi-professional, with only a "handful" of top players full-time. Club's annual wage bills will be approximately one-tenth of those in the American WPS.

A mid-season break will commence on 12 May 2011, to allow for the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. The season will then resume in early July, finishing in August 2011.

Women's Super League - Teams

The following eight clubs won two year licences to participate in the Women's Super League from 2011:

  • Arsenal
  • Birmingham City
  • Bristol Academy
  • Chelsea
  • Doncaster Rovers Belles
  • Everton
  • Lincoln Ladies
  • Liverpool

Six of those played their 2009–10 season in the FA Women's Premier League, Liverpool and Lincoln played in the 2nd level Northern Division, which Liverpool won. The goal is to expand the league to a maximum of 12 teams between 2013 and 2016.

Women's Super League History

The Women's Super League was due to start in 2010 but was deferred for a year due to the global economic downturn. Sixteen clubs applied for a place in the inaugural season of the league: Arsenal, Barnet, Birmingham City, Bristol Academy, Chelsea, Colchester United, Doncaster Rovers Belles, Everton, Leeds Carnegie, Leicester City, Lincoln Ladies, Liverpool, Millwall Lionesses, Newcastle United, Nottingham Forest and Sunderland. Leeds Carnegie later withdrew their application. Women's Premier League clubs Blackburn Rovers and Watford declined to apply. FA Chief Executive Ian Watmore described the creation of the league as a "top priority" in February 2010.
