By Oliver Eaton (26/1/22).
Last month Huddersfield Town Women announced that they will be hosting their Fourth Round Vitality Women’s FA Cup fixture against FA Women’s Super League side Everton at the men’s team’s home at the 24,000 capacity John Smith’s Stadium.
The club has now announced ticket information and the kick-off times as the Terriers aim to smash their attendance record which stands at 1,115.
All tickets are purchased on the turnstile this Sunday (30th January) and it will be cash only. Prices are: Adults: £5, Concessions: £3, Under-16s accompanied by an adult will be free.
Turnstiles will be open from 12pm with access only to the Core Stand Lower. Kick-off, as advertised by the FA, will be 1pm on Sunday 30th January. 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, maybe for the first time.
Speaking about the tie, 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 & Hove Albion in last year’s Vitality Women’s FA 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!”
