Women's Super League 2022/23 fixtures, dates and schedule: Chelsea start title defence at Liverpool live on Sky

Defending champions Chelsea at Liverpool and Arsenal vs Brighton among eye-catching opening-round fixtures; WSL will have a month-long winter break after weekend of December; this article was first published prior to the football postponements following the death of the Queen


The 2022/23 Women's Super League season kicks off this weekend, with defending champions Chelsea starting with a trip to Liverpool, live on Sky Sports.

After the start of the season was postponed due to the death of the Queen, WSL runners-up Arsenal will get the delayed campaign under way when they host Brighton on Friday evening.

Arsenal only missed out on the title by a point last season, so their home match with Chelsea on the weekend of January 14/15 - the first round of games after the WSL's month-long winter break - and trip to face Emma Hayes' side on the penultimate weekend of the season, May 20/21, could be pivotal.

January 14/15 also sees Manchester United host newly promoted Liverpool, with the rivals meeting again on the final weekend of the campaign, May 27/28. United's Manchester derbies with Man City are away on December 10/11 - the final round of games before the winter break - and at home on May 20/21.

Women's Championship winners Liverpool play their first game back in WSL since 2020 hosting Chelsea in front of the Sky cameras.

Fans of Arsenal will put a ring around the weekends of September 24/25 and March 25/26 in their diary, with fixtures at home and away to north London rivals Tottenham scheduled for those dates.
