FA launches Hall of Fame to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the FA Women’s Super League, that will look to recognise individuals who have made a significant impact on the league.
Ten years after Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 in the first Women’s Super League game (13th of April, 2011), FA announced WSL Hall of Fame. First induction event will take place later in the year after an expert panel will shortlist candidates. Following the record TV rights deal in March, Hall of Fame is another step forward in the women’s game.

“The launch of the Barclays FA WSL Hall of Fame is designed to recognise those who have made a major contribution to the league over the last ten years. I want to say thank you to all those who have been on the journey with us over the last ten years. Without your support, we wouldn’t be where we are now. Rest assured, we still have huge ambitions for this league, with the ultimate goal to have the best professional women’s competition in the world,” said Kelly Simmons, FA Director of the Women’s Professional Game.
