Women's Charlton friendly confirmed as behind closed doors


The club has received confirmation that Sunday's pre-season friendly against Charlton Athletic will be behind closed doors.

Following on from Saturday's hard-fought draw with Celtic in Glasgow, Saints are set to take on fellow Barclays Women's Championship side Charlton Athletic at The Oakwood.

Ahead of the fixture, the Addicks have confirmed that the game will be played behind closed doors, with spectators unable to attend on this occasion.

There will not be a live stream of the game but there will be updates on the dedicated Women's matchday Twitter account to stay up to date with all the action.

Saints fans won't have long to wait to see the Women's team in action, with a home friendly with Lewes set for the following weekend. Tickets are available to purchase for that fixture now, with £4 tickets for adults and £1 tickets for U18s.

Charlton Athletic will make the return journey to Southampton for the opening game of the Barclays Women's Championship on Sunday 21st August, with Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side looking to get off to a winning start for their debut season.

Tickets for the opening fixture will be released in due course.
