The women football league resumes in September, and Chelsea women’s manager Emma Hayes is hugely enthusiastic about the new season.

The Chelsea women’s first game of the season comes up on September 8 against newly promoted Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Tickets for that game are available for free, and Hayes is excited at the chance to play at Stamford Bridge, and she’s urging fans to come in mass to support the team.

“I’m really excited for the fans, the players and everyone involved with the club that we get the chance to play at the home of Chelsea Football Club,’ declares Hayes.

“It’s an honour to get that opportunity, against one of our London rivals, and it’s the first chance the fans will have to watch all our players who took part in the World Cup. I hope we can get as many fans as we possibly can in the stadium.

“Women’s football has moved into the mainstream,” she continued. “It’s being appreciated by the masses, it has developed a whole new fanbase which I hope realises it has these top players right on their doorstep.

“They don’t have to wait once every four years to see them, they’re up the road. The whole league is stacked with players who showcased their world-class talent in France over the past month or so.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
