Scunthorpe to host League Cup Final
 Women's Football News 8 Jan 2009
Scunthorpe United will once again host the first Final of the women's football season at their 9,100 capacity Glanford Park Stadium - the FA Tesco Women's Premier League Cup Final - on Thursday 26th February. Kick-off is at 7pm.
The game pits last year's runners up, Arsenal against Doncaster Rovers Belles, who are making their first league cup final appearance since 1996.
Eight time Cup winners Arsenal booked their fifth consecutive final appearance with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Chelsea in the semi finals, whilst Doncaster Belles overcame Preston North End 3-1 to earn their place.
Peter Hough, Chairman of the FA Women's Premier League, said: "The FA looks to take its showpiece matches around the country and we know that the north east region is increasingly seeing more and more girls and women playing the game.
"Glanford Park is a great stadium with first class facilities. On the field the club is having a great season and we hope that a large number of the club's supporters, along with fans, families and teams from across the region, will come out in force to see some of the most talented female players in the country, some of whom will also carry England's hopes in the European Championships later this year."
Scunthorpe United's General Manager Jamie Hammond added: "Scunthorpe United is delighted to once again hold this prestigious event at Glanford Park. We hope the match will help raise the profile of women's football in the local community. The game will also offer us the opportunity to develop our links with girls and women's clubs within the community. I hope the match will be a successful event."
The competition is now in its second year of sponsorship under Tesco, who are the FA's Women's Football Partner and their aim is to support the development of the game. Through The FA Tesco Skills Programme and the Tesco Under-14 Girls and Under-16 Girls cup competitions, Tesco are helping increase participation in women's football at a grass roots level. As a direct result of the sponsorship, the FA Women's Premier League clubs have received funding to support coaching, improve facilities and grow player development pathways.
David Potts, Tesco Retail Director said: "This year's FA Tesco Women's Premier League Cup Final is a very exciting clash between North and South. As a big football fan myself, it's great to be involved with this Cup competition and with two of our top four clubs in the final I'm looking forward to a closely fought match."
Tickets go on sale for the Final on Thursday 8th January costing £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. A group discount (minimum 15 people with 1 adult per 10 children) is available at the cost of £3 for adults and £2 for children.
