WPWL League Cup set for revamped start

The Welsh Premier Women’s League Cup will be changing for the 2019/20 season after clubs voted for an amended format at the recent AGM, giving teams more games and increased opportunity to progress to the final stages of the competition.

The ten WPWL clubs will be randomly drawn into two mini leagues of five, with a round-robin games programme between September and December, each club playing twice at home and twice away. The top two will progress into the semi-finals, before the final on 29th March 2020.

The draw for the WPWL League Cup will take place on Friday 19th July, following the WPWL fixture programme announcement on Wednesday.

Previously the League Cup had been based on four rounds of straight-knockout games, however with 10 teams competing round one consisted of just two matches, with the remaining six teams joining in round two; the introduction of a group stage provides all clubs a minimum of four games and those reaching the final will have six. Additional matches offer clubs more player development opportunities, while the increased number of fixtures added to the calendar provides a consistent and regular programme of games throughout the season.
