With the men’s international weekend creating a pause in the Premier League and EFL calendars, The FA called on supporters to capitalise on the opportunity to back Women’s Football Weekend and to attend a women’s match at any level in the pyramid on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November.

The announcement of the weekend, that will become an annual event followed a momentous start to the FA Women’s Championship and FA Women’s Super League where more than 62,000 supporters attended opening-day fixtures.

Charlton Athletic Women have welcomed large crowds already this season with 913 fans attending the club's recent fixture against Aston Villa. The team's attendance grew by more than 121% last season and they are looking to go even further this year.

Kelly Simmons, The FA’s director of women’s professional game said: “We are excited to announce the first ever Women’s Football Weekend, for what is sure to be another great moment in a year that has seen huge momentum behind the growth in popularity of women’s football. 

“Following on from a record-breaking FIFA Women’s World Cup and opening Barclays FA Women's Super League and Championship weekend, there has never been a better time to visit your local team, and we encourage all supporters to get involved at all levels of the pyramid on 16 and 17 November.”

Charlton Athletic Women’s General Manager Steve Adamson said: “Every season more and more fans are coming to watch us. We want more fans to turn up week in, week out to support the team, as we look to build on our foundations of being a family friendly women’s football team.

“The women’s game is growing so much every season and we want fans to see this first hand. The Lionesses’ recently sold out Wembley Stadium showing that there is a huge demand for one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.”
