Newcastle United Women will play Bradford City Women at St James’ Park on Sunday 27 November.
The Magpies’ decision to play a second game at St James’ Park this calendar year comes after a successful crowd attended their 4-0 home win over Alnwick Town Ladies in May.
22,134 supporters attended that match which set the highest attendance record of any league match last season across the women’s level in English Football.
Newcastle have since brought the men and women’s teams under the same ownership after previously operating the women’s team as an affiliation, via support from Newcastle United Foundation since 2016.
Becky Langley’s Magpies will now host Bradford City in FA Women’s National League Division One on Sunday 27 November, with kick-off at St James’ Park confirmed for 2pm GMT which falls two weeks after the men’s game shuts down for 2022 FIFA World Cup.
This match therefore will represent the last chance for Newcastle supporters to gather at St James’ Park for a live match ahead of the festive season, with the men’s team scheduled not back in action at home until New Year’s Eve against Leeds United.
Speaking about this latest opportunity to play at St James’ Park, Head Coach – Langley said that she and the squad are “thrilled” to again play at the 130 year-old stadium in 2022.
Langley also urged supporters to get behind the team like they did against Alnwick as she commented: “The support we received at the stadium in May was incredible, and we hope as many supporters as possible can come along in November to make it another very special occasion.”
On the impact that she hopes to achieve across Tyneside with this latest fixture, Langley continued: “We are very proud to be championing women’s football in the region and that our players are such fantastic role models.
“This is a great opportunity to showcase women’s football in the North East and we hope to continue inspiring a new generation of girls and women to play and enjoy the game.”
