Clubs in the Barclays FA WSL will earn a share of a £500,000 prize fund for the 2019-20 season.
It is the first time a league prize fund has been in place, thanks to The FA’s new partnership with Barclays, with the winners set to collect £100,000.
The remaining £400,000 will be distributed among the other 11 clubs based on their final league position.
2019-20 prize fund distribution:
