The fixtures for the upcoming Women's Super League Spring Series have been released, with WSL Champions Manchester City kicking-off their campaign at home to Chelsea on Sunday the 23rd of April.

The Spring Series is a one-off competition which has been created to bridge the gap between seasons, while the FA WSL transitions from a summer league to a more traditional football calendar.

Each club will play each other once with a trophy awarded to each division’s winners. The Spring Series will finish before this summer’s Euros.

The competition starts the day before when newly promoted Bristol City hosts Reading on Saturday the 22nd.
