Huddersfield Town Women announced this afternoon that their Fourth Round Vitality Women’s FA Cup fixture against Everton will be held at the mens’ team’s 24,500 capacity John Smith’s Stadium on January 30th 2022.
This is a huge fixture for the club and a big test against a Barclays FA Women’s Super League side. It is also a great opportunity for Huddersfield fans to watch their local women’s football side in action, potentially for the first time.
The match gives the club an opportunity to break their attendance record which stands at 1,115. Ticketing information alongside confirmation of kick-off time will be announced in the coming weeks.
Speaking about the news, Huddersfield Town Women chair Alison Bamforth said: “The whole club are incredibly excited to have the privilege of welcoming Jean-Luc Vasseur and his Everton side to Huddersfield.
“We are delighted that our players once again have an opportunity to test themselves against WSL opposition, building on the experience of playing Brighton and Hove Albion in last year’s Vitality Women’s FC Cup 5th round.”
“I would like to extend huge thanks to Huddersfield Town AFC for hosting the game at the John Smith’s Stadium and would love to see the whole of Huddersfield out in force to be that ‘12th man [player/women]’ and perhaps help generate a bit of FA Cup magic!”
