Accrington Stanley Women FC played a historic match in front of a record crowd at the Wham Stadium, against international side Isle of Man National Women’s Team earlier this year. For their next home game, versus Preston North End Women, they return to the Wham Stadium – and are offering free tickets so you can show your support! The fixture is on Sunday 17th September, with kick-off at 2 pm.

Interest in women’s football is at an all-time high with the recent success of England’s Lionesses in the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The home game at the Wham Stadium is a perfect opportunity to show support for the women’s game, and for children to be inspired by the skill and talent of the women. The outstanding facilities at the Wham Stadium will certainly make it a day to remember – and Accrington Stanley Women are looking to beat their record crowd of 1139 keen supporters who joined them last time!

Free tickets are available and must be booked in advance, with a limit of 4 per booking: there are also sponsorship opportunities available, for both match day and player sponsorship. Anyone interested should

Chair of Accrington Stanley Women, Sami Smithson, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to play a home game in the superb facilities of the Wham Stadium, and what a treat for our opposition Preston North End Women, and our supporters.

“We would like to beat our record attendance of last time, and have made the decision to offer free tickets so that the match is accessible for all. Maybe seeing the match will inspire more young women to join our teams – we have over 200 players across all age groups!

“We will be using this opportunity to celebrate women & girls football, and hopefully recruit more players to help us to continue to grow and develop. It will be a fantastic day for women’s football – and we encourage everyone to get their free tickets as soon as possible!

We’re also actively looking for sponsors, as we have several junior teams without team sponsors and first-team players without named sponsors too. All sponsors will get a space in the match day programme – if you’re interested please !”
