The Welsh Premier Women's League kicks off on 8th September, as the season starts with the first round of the revamped WPWL League Cup seven days earlier. The official launch of the league will be on 3rd September at the Wales v Northern Ireland game at Rodney Parade.
The WPWL is scheduled to finish on 12th April 2020, with the potential for a big game between Cardiff Met and Cardiff Women on the final day.

The FAW Women's Cup Final is on Sunday 19th April and will be the last game of the season for the WPWL clubs, with all invited to the game to celebrate women's club football in Wales.
Opening fixtures to be played Sunday 8th September, 2pm:
Abergavenny Women v Cardiff City Women
Aberystwyth Town v Rhyl Ladies
Briton Ferry Llansawel v Llandudno Ladies
Cardiff Met Women v Swansea City
Port Talbot Town v Cyncoed Ladies
The Welsh Premier Women's League Cup will be changing for the 2019-20 season after clubs voted for an amended format at the recent AGM, giving teams more games and increased opportunity to progress to the final stages of the competition.
The ten WPWL clubs will be randomly drawn into two mini leagues of five, with a round-robin games programme between September and December, each club playing twice at home and twice away. The top two will progress into the semi finals, before the final on 29th March 2020.
Previously the League Cup had been based on four rounds of straight knockout games, however with ten teams competing round one consisted of just two matches, with the remaining six teams joining in round two; the introduction of a group stage provides all clubs a minimum of four games and those reaching the final will have six. Additional matches offer clubs more player development opportunities, while the increased number of fixtures added to the calendar provides a consistent and regular programme of games throughout the season.
