Doncaster Belles face a tough assignment in their opening FA Womens Super League clash, as they host defending champions Chelsea Ladies.

After claiming promotion to the top tier following a second placed finish in FAWSL2 last season, Belles have been handed a glamorous opening fixture on Thursday March 26 at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Their first away trip the following week will see them travel to take on Birmingham City Ladies, who came sixth in the top tier last time around.

The Belles then continue their difficult start as they take on Manchester City away, before hosting Arsenal before the end of March, meaning they’ll face all of last season’s top three sides in their first four fixtures.

The Womens Super League season comes to a close in November, with Belles’ final outing being away at Reading on November 6.
