The 2023/24 Scottish Women's Premier League season kicks off with champions Glasgow City at home to Hibernian.

Newly promoted Montrose start life in the top-flight at home to last season's runners-up Celtic, who missed out on the title on a dramatic final day, as did Rangers - who under new boss Jo Potter - visit Spartans.

There are new head coaches in two other games too as Hamilton Academical begin life under Robert Watson with a home tie against Hearts, meanwhile Clinton Lancaster's Aberdeen host Motherwell while the final fixture sees Dundee United are home to Partick Thistle.

'An unprecedented level of anticipation...'

SWPL managing director Fiona McIntyre said: "This is always an exciting day in the calendar as clubs, players, coaches, and fans start to see the new season coming to life.

"After such a dramatic end to the 2022/23 season and with ScottishPower as new title sponsors, there is an unprecedented level of anticipation around today's release.

"I think we can expect two extremely competitive divisions. For the first time in a long time there is a real unknown about who the favourites are to finish as champions and to be relegated in both the SPWPL and SPWPL 2.

"That is what we want from our top leagues, and that competitiveness and uncertainty of outcome brings real excitement for fans as we saw at the end of last season when the levels of interest in the game increased exponentially.

"Alongside the clubs, we can't wait to get the new campaign started and to build on the momentum and success of last season."
