The Women's International friendly between England and Denmark will go ahead as planned on Thursday evening
The FA and Portsmouth FC can confirm that the Women's International friendly between England and Denmark, in partnership with Nationwide, will go ahead as planned on Thursday evening.
There have been a number of press reports, which simply resulted from a breakdown in communication, suggesting that the match would be cancelled and that Portsmouth FC were in legal breach of the agreement.
Portsmouth FC simply acted in the belief that the match would be cancelled if The FA Cup 5th round tie versus Liverpool was drawn. Communication had been made between Portsmouth Community Department and The FA’s International Development Team but clearly misunderstandings and interpretations were made by both parties.
The FA would like to thank Portsmouth for its support in staging the England v Denmark game.
Both parties are looking forward to an exciting match and a big crowd on Thursday evening followed by The FA Cup 5th round replay on Sunday between Portsmouth and Liverpool.
