Women's clubs meet at Wembley to hear plans for the Women's Super League.
Leading women’s clubs from across England converged on Wembley on Friday to hear plans for the Women’s Super League, due to be launched in March 2011.
Representatives from potential Super League participant clubs were presented with detailed marketing proposals and were invited to submit their entries for the eight-strong League.
The FA’s Chief Executive Ian Watmore spoke at the event to express his ongoing support for the Super League, following last month’s decision to re-open the application process.
Addressing the club representatives Watmore said: “We have got a great turnout, which is really good and there is a willingness to work together.
“We think the women’s game is at the ‘tipping point’ and we’re trying to raise people’s aspirations.
“Even those that have not thought about women’s football in the past have recognised that its time has arrived. We want to make this a reality.”
Clubs now have until 18 December to submit their applications, after which a transparent review process will take place with clubs invited to present their plans for entry in to the League early in the New Year.
Furthermore clubs will now be able to find information relating to the Super League on a bespoke website page at www.TheFA.com/superleague
