The newly branded SWPL season will get underway this Sunday (August 7) – and it is sure to be one of the league’s most exciting campaigns ever.
Already the biggest in terms of numbers, the Scottish top tier will be one of the most competitive seasons, with the likes of champions Rangers, Glasgow City and Celtic once again favourites to the lift the trophy come May.
However, capital clubs Hibs and Hearts have strengthened significantly over the summer, while moving to a semi-professional model alongside Aberdeen, who had an outstanding first season in the SWPL last year.
All three will be aiming to break the top three for the first time in two seasons, though Spartans, Motherwell and perhaps even newly promoted Dundee United will be aiming to show their credentials and follow the Dons lead storming the top tier.
One thing is for sure, with women’s football growing at an unstoppable pace, now is the time to get involved in the game, back your local club and see the future of Scottish football right in front of your eyes.
