Monday 19 Mar 2018
The semi-finals will take place on Sunday 15 April

FA WSL 1 table-toppers Chelsea will face either Sunderland or holders Manchester City in the semi-final of the SSE Women’s FA Cup after the draw was made on Monday morning.

The draw was conducted on BBC Radio 5Live by presenter Rachel Burden and former England international Sue Smith.

Heavy snow meant only one quarter final tie went ahead at the weekend, with Chelsea, Cup winners in 2015, easing to a 3-0 victory over Liverpool.

The three remaining quarter finals – Durham v Everton, Arsenal v Charlton Athletic and Sunderland v Manchester City – have been rescheduled for Sunday 25 March.

Both semi-finals will take place on Sunday 15 April and will be broadcast live on the BBC, with each winning club receiving £5,000 from The FA prize fund.

This season’s Final will be staged at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 5 May.

Tickets are already on sale, priced £15 for adults while kids go FREE!
