2020 Women's fixtures announced

Post by josie andrews » Sun Jan 12, 2020 1:15 pm

The 2020 Betfred Women’s Super League fixtures have been announced with Wigan Warriors Women beginning their campaign against Warrington Wolves Women on 29th March.

The Round One tie will be a home fixture for the Wire, taking place at the Asics Stadium with a 2pm kick-off.

Emerald Headingley will stage the Grand Final of the 2020 Betfred Women’s Super League in October – the climax of a season which has been restructured to provide more intense competition, especially in the closing weeks.

The BWSL has expanded for the third consecutive year since the competition was launched in 2017, with the introduction of Huddersfield Giants and Warrington Wolves producing a 10-team league – a 150% increase on the original pilot four-team competition.

As a result of that expansion, in 2020 the BWSL will split after nine rounds in mid-July, when all 10 teams have played each other once.

The top four will then contest the Betfred Women’s Super League Play-Offs – playing each other home and away to provide another six fixtures – with the top two qualifying automatically for the Grand Final at Emerald Headingley on Sunday October 11.

That will again produce a bumper Grand Final weekend, as it follows the Betfred Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday October 10.

The bottom six will contest the Betfred Women’s Super League Shield, playing each other once to provide another five fixtures, leading to semi finals and the Shield Final which will also be played at Emerald Headingley on Sunday October 11, as the first part of a double-header.

Points from the first part of the season before the split will carry over into both the Play-Offs and the Shield.

The 2020 BWSL season will begin on Sunday March 29 with a full round of five fixtures.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
