Green shoots: Or, why Spurs Women’s last two losses give reason for optimism

Spurs Women lost their last two games: 2-1, away at Aston Villa and 1-3 at home to Chelsea. The loss to Chelsea saw them exit the Conti Cup at the quarter final stage, while the loss to Aston Villa was the fifth straight loss in the WSL, where Spurs have not won since their increasingly …

Fixtures

There is now a 2022/3 fixture list (although note that times/days WILL change when TV picks are determined).

For those of you new to women’s football. Games are usually on Sundays (although this can vary). The 2022/3 season starts on the weekend of 10/11 September and ends in May, with lots of breaks.

In 2022/3 Spurs play the following competitive games:

  • League games (Barclays WSL). A twelve team league: we play 11 other teams twice (home and away) across 22 games each season.
  • Continental Cup games: This begins with five mini leagues including all tier one (Super League) and tier two (Championship) clubs, except those in the Champions League, who get a bye. After a round-robin, the top team from each league progress and are joined by the Champions League teams in knock out rounds. Current status: Spurs lost to Chelsea in the QF, 25 Jan, and so are out of the cup for this year.
  • FA Cup games: made up of knock out rounds WSL teams enter in the fourth round proper. Current status: Spurs beat London City Lionesses in the 4th round and will now face Reading at home in the 5th round on Sunday 26th February – tickets on sale.

Home Games

It is SO much fun to watch games live. It’s super-easy to get a ticket, costs are relatively low (especially for kids or younger adults), the crowds are very friendly (so you can go alone, or let teenagers go by themselves, without worry). Try it and you’ll be hooked!

Season Tickets. For 2022/3 season tickets are SOLD OUT. Adult season tickets were £70 (others were cheaper).

There is always good availability of tickets for individual home games. Ticketing is via the Spurs website (Spurs ticket-office). It works similarly to the men’s but it’s cheap.

  • Adult game tickets are £7.
  • Under 17s and over 65s just £3.50
  • Young adults are £4.50.

Tickets are also available to buy on the day at the ticket office at Brisbane Road. It may be a bit more expensive but not much.

Note: most games are initially listed as at 2pm on a Sunday. But this may change with the exact day/kick-off time dependent on TV schedules. So do not book transport/accomodation until these are confirmed.

Matchday Information

This year we are at Brisbane Road Stadium, home of Leyton Orient FC for 2022/23.

Away Games

It’s easy to go to away games and if you’re in London there are several other WSL teams with grounds that are near enough to get to via public transport (Arsenal, West Ham and Chelsea). Other games are further afield.

Buying tickets: This is changing slowly. But currently in most cases you are required to go to the relevant away team’s site to buy tickets for away games. Find the links here. Buying tickets is typically straightforward, but you have to register for each team’s site, and that sometimes involves two stages. You then essentially buy a ticket as if you are a fan of that team (a little disconcerting to become a ‘Chelsea supporter’). Since most women’s games do not have segregated fans it’s random whether you end up in an area of Spurs or other supporters, but in some cases seats are unassigned or there are empty seats so you can move.

If you want to sit near Spurs fans, check the THWFCSC on twitter, as this account will regularly tweet away game links including the area in which Spurs fans are buying tickets.

For bigger games at main stadiums (e.g. Arsenal away at the Emirates) tickets in an ‘away end’ are sold via the Spurs site. So do check there (scroll to the end of the Spurs ticketing page for away tickets).

The following is some personal experiences of away stadiums in the WSL. One thing that you’ll either love or hate is that they are often in the arse-end-of-nowhere. For me, that’s part of the fun.

Arsenal play at Boreham Wood, which is hard to get to, but for the last couple of years they’ve held NLDs at the Emirates. So that means a big stadium in central London and in walking distance of public transport: Drayton Park, Highbury and Islington, Finsbury Park and Canonbury stations are all fine. For this game it’s important to get tickets in the ‘Away end’ if you don’t want to be surrounded by Arsenal fans.

Aston Villa play at the Poundland Stadium in Walsall. An easy train ride from Birmingham New Street (there is also parking). It’s an old school stadium surrounded by a shopping centre and busy roads. The stands go all the way around, but they are not all open. The camera perches opposite fans in a strange media booth above the stands. There are a few posts obstructing your view (not a major issue). There is no fan segregation so you will sit among Villa fans. There are not many women’s toilets (only one in one of the corners; more in the other) meaning long queues. Likewise for refreshments. Not a hostile atmosphere, but nothing remarkable. Hard to move after a game because the narrow aisles beside the pitch along which you exit are full of selfie-hunting fans.

Brighton play at Broadfield Stadium, near Crawley. There is a car park. But on public transport from London it requires you get a train to Three Bridges or to Gatwick and then a #20 bus. These have reasonably regular services so it’s not too much of a trek. The stadium itself is quite small with standing terraces at either end and seated stands along the sides. The season ticket holders sit on the side with the dugouts. The other stand is where there is an away end and more home supporters. It also has posts but these don’t really affect the view. There is allocated seating, but no barriers between seats so when games are not sold out it’s pretty straightforward to move to stand at an end if you so wish. The atmosphere is definitely improved by being at a stadium in which all four ends are occupied with fans. The food is typcial stadium-fare with a decent veggie pie and a selection of meat options. Home fans are friendly and lively. A decent day out.

Chelsea play most of their games at Kingsmeadow. This is a dedicated Chelsea women/academy team stadium and has their colours. It’s on the outskirts of London but walking distance from Norbiton station (which is about 20 mins journey from Vauxhall). There seems to be parking either at the grounds or nearby. Games sometimes sell out (relatively rare in WSL) and this means it’s atmospheric. The stadium has seating on three sides: West side (mostly Season Ticket holders and has an indoor cafe/bar next to it), North (often includes away fans) and East which has a designated ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ parts, but isn’t always used in that way. There is also a standing terrace (South). Tickets are assigned to a stand but you can move within that. As well as the indoor cafe/bar there are food trucks at each corner of the stadium.

Everton play at Walton Hall Park, which is a small stadium on the road out of Liverpool, a little way beyond Goodison. There are buses which take you from there to the Centre of Liverpool, but they’re not very regular. There is also a car park, which did not seem very busy. The stadium is surrounded by a park and has stands along the sides only, although usually only one is open for spectators. You can also stand at the edge of the pitch at either end behind the goal (or near that), meaning that you can move to the end your team is attacking each half. There is one food truck.

Leicester, like Reading, play at their main men’s stadium. That is the King Power stadium. It’s not right in the centre of town, but is nonetheless walking distance from the station. Facilities at the stadium are decent. There isn’t a segregated away end and seats are allocated. That said, it’s not especially hostile environment to be an away fan (although the fans were full-on booing Ashleigh Neville in a recent game). There is a lot of mileage made out of their mascot, with kids queuing up to meet him pre-game and at half-time.

Liverpool play at Prenton Park, Tranmere Rovers’ home ground.

Manchester City play in the Academy Stadium, a short four stop tram ride (Blue line) from Manchester Picadilly station. So it’s very easy to get to (once you get to Manchester!). The stadium is modern, with a high quality pitch, lots of staff, large screen etc. Tickets are assigned, but the stands are big so when it’s not sold out it’s easy to move to sit where you want. The view is good with no obstructions and seating across the centre-line. There is a small section of loud home-support but it’s not intimidating. There are notably good food/drink outlets with homemade cakes and meat/veggie pies.

Manchester United play in Leigh Valley, somewhere between Manchester and Liverpool. There is decent public transport but it seems that a lot of fans come by car. You can choose seats in one of two stands (West – along the pitch or South – behind the goal). There’s no seating above the coaching staff etc, so West stand seating is spread towards the corners. There was a big group of loud home support in the West stand; South stand was quieter with a notable sprinkling of Spurs fans. Despite seeming to be a newish complex, there were massive queues for food/drink/loos.

Reading play at the same stadium as their men’s team, currently known as the Select Car Leasing Stadium. It is in an out of town shopping centre, meaning that there is a car park. But if you’re coming by public transport it is a long bus ride followed by a 10-15 minute walk from Reading station. Tickets are usually sold on just one side of the stadium, starting at the lower tier. This means that if you wait to get your ticket you might end up quite high. There isn’t an away end, so check out Spurs Women’s Supporter’s club for suggestions of an area to sit in if you want to be around Spurs fans. As a relatively big stadium (for the women’s game) the facilities are pretty decent, with lots of toilets, and a range of foods and drinks.

West Ham play in the Dagenham and Redbridge stadium. It’s an easy walk from the tube (Dagenham East on the District Line) and a proper old-school stadium with creaking turnstiles. Annoyingly you have to select your seats in advance, and the seating areas are divided up even within a stand so there are limits to where you can move. In my case this meant I ended up surrounded by loud West Ham fans (not my favourite place to be!). That said, I appreciated the intense atmosphere.

Watching online

Information below on how to watch games online in the UK and US (click to jump to relevant info).

If you have information about how to watch in other territories, please get in touch with your suggestions and they’ll be added.

Watching in the UK

Each game week at least one WSL game is shown on Sky and one on the BBC. Chosen games most often feature ‘big’ teams, producing the sad irony that Spurs get their biggest TV audiences for their hardest games. Not to worry, however, every Spurs game can be found somewhere.

Spurs Play screens selected Spurs Women games live and has all Cup and WSL games on catchup. To watch full games you need to pay a one-off (annual) fee to sign up.

The FA Player streams most Spurs games live (WSL, FA Cup, Conti Cup). The exception is games selected for Sky/BBC, for which it provides audio commentary only (although you may still be able to watch these on the FA Player with a VPN). You can find all past games, brief highlights for each game, the Women’s Football Show (that also screens on the BBC late on Sunday nights), as well as other women’s football content, including select FAWC games. Games are available for catch-up on the FA Player about 24 hours after they are shown live.

You can watch online or download the FA Player from Google Play or the App Store. You will need to register. If you’re not in the UK you can watch most games live with the FA Player (more info on the US below).

When games are not selected for Sky/BBC they tend to be filmed with a single camera meaning that bits of the action may be cut out by the angle. Commentary can also be a bit glitchy, sometimes disappearing completely (assuming this is a technical issue); and since it’s often just one person doing the commentary it’s a little hit and miss: key moments can come and go without the commentator noticing. And some Conti-Cup games have no commentary. That said, it’s great to get to see all our games and for free.

Should Spurs ever get to the Champions League (or if you fancy watching the teams that have made it that far) you can watch games streaming live via Dazn on youtube. What’s great about this is that they have multiple streams for each game with audio commentary in relevant languages – depending on where the teams are from. Like the FA Player there can be technical glitches but it’s a more than decent service.

Watching in the US

If you’re watching from the US, the majority of matches will be streamed on Spurs Play or the FA Player (free login required). Starting with the 2022/23 season, the US TV rights for the WSL will transferred from NBC to CBS network, and matches will then air on either CBS Sports Network or stream on Paramount+. There is also the option of watching select matches on ATA Football, a subscription streaming service. The ATA streams have much more commentary than the FA Player broadcasts (including halftime coverage), but ATA doesn’t stream every Spurs Women match.
