According to The Times, the match scheduled for September 13 will be the first WSL fixture to feature the return of fans in a new piloted return scheme.

The scheme is to experiment with returning fans to fixtures before a tentative return date for fans to all fixtures across England on October 1.

Matches are set to be played in front of vastly reduced crowds, with stadiums filled to a maximum of around a third of capacity.

The financial effect of WSL clubs playing in front of closed doors has been especially felt by the poorer clubs in the league, with women's teams often feeling the brunt of any cutbacks.
