Arsenal Ladies v Lincoln Ladies
FA WSL Continental Cup Final
7.30pm, Friday 4 October 2013
The Hive, Barnet FC
Live on BT Sport
Barnet FC will host the 2013 FA WSL Continental Cup Final between Arsenal and Lincoln on Friday 4 October.
The match, which will kick-off at 7.30pm, will also be shown exclusively live on BT Sport.
Two-time winners Arsenal will appear in the final for the third successive year, after their 4-0 semi-final victory over Everton. They face Lincoln after The Imps clinched their place in a penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool. It was third time lucky for Rick Passmoor’s side after they have lost at semi-final stage for the past two years.
The Continental Cup Final promises to be a spectacular finish to another massive year for The FA WSL, which has seen continued growth in participation levels, unprecedented media coverage and growing crowds at club matches throughout the season.
To help mark a special year for The Football Association - the 150th anniversary and 20 years since they took over the running of the women’s game - there is a special pricing structure with group bookings of at least 15 people, able to attend the match for as little as £1.50 each. And with a family ticket costing only £10, football fans can experience top class women’s football at an affordable price. Tickets will be on sale from 4 September.
Barnet’s Chairman Anthony Kleanthous, said: “We have a very proud history of women’s football here at Barnet and we are delighted to be hosting the FA WSL Continental Cup Final for the second season in a row.
“The Final is the show-piece event in the FA WSL calendar and we are all looking forward to a thrilling match between two of the best teams in the country. We hope football fans will come out in force to enjoy fantastic football and a great family occasion.”
Prior to seeing the two teams in action, fans are invited to take part in free, fun football based interactive games, organised by Continental Tyres.
Games include batak boards, a speed cage, a target shoot inflatable plus a new trailer which will have the FA WSL Cup, Cyprus Cup and Continental Cup on display.
To add to the enhanced fan experience, there will also be hair braiding and face painting, all of which will take place outside the stadium from 5.30pm.
Laura Hardy, sponsorship manager at Continental Tyres, added: “We are extremely proud to support the women’s game at the highest level with the FA WSL Continental Cup and also to support and encourage girls to get involved in the sport with The FA Girls’ Football Festivals in association with Continental Tyres.
“There has never been a more exciting time for women’s football and we are thrilled to sponsor what is fast becoming one of the highlights of the sporting calendar.”
