Blackburn Rovers will have a new home for the forthcoming FA Tesco Women's Premier League season.
Rovers are moving to Radcliffe Borough's Stainton Park, so ending a three-year association with Clitheroe FC.
Manager Adam Lakeland said: "The facilities at Radcliffe Borough are very impressive and we just feel the time is right for a change. The switch suits us geographically, for we are attracting an increasing number of players from around the Manchester and Liverpool areas.
"Our new ground is just a 25-minute drive from Ewood Park, so we hope to retain our loyal fan base as well as entice new supporters as we enter our fourth season in the women's top flight."
Gerry Luczka, Director of Football at Radcliffe Borough, said: "We would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone associated with Blackburn Rovers. We've never had this level of football here before and there is certainly an air of excitement amongst our local spectators.
"The ground is situated in a densely populated area and I hope the local football fans will turn out to support Rovers. We are all very much looking forward to the start of the season and watching the ladies play."
Rovers' Football Secretary Andrew Pincher added: "We would like to thank Clitheroe FC for hosting our ladies' games for the previous three years. The relationship worked really well and we have had great support from all of the staff at Shawbridge, particularly secretary Anne Barker and chairman Carl Garner."
