Southampton Women Start FA Cup Campaign Against Swindon Town Today
Sunday, 14th Nov 2021 09:07
Why not pop along and see how the women's team is coming along when this afternoon they take on Swindon Town in the 1st round of the Women's FA Cup at the Snows Stadium home of AFC Totton.
The Saints women's team is slowly but surely making it's way up the pyramid system in the women's game, their progress up the leagues disrupted by the Covid 19 pandemic, the ultimate aim is to reach the Premier League and that looks likely due to the infrastructure that is being put in place with the backing of Southampton FC.
But it is a break from the League this weekend when they take on Swindon Town in the 1st round of the FA Cup at AFC Totton, last season the club reached the last 16 of the competition beating AFC Bournemouth, Plymouth Argyle, Yeovil United and Championship side Lewes FC before finally going out to Birmingham City.
As it's an FA Cup fixture, season tickets will not be valid on Sunday. This means everyone will have to pay an additional fee, however it is a bargain price.
Adults - £3
Under-18s – Free
Tickets can be bought in advance using the link below or pay on the gate.
The Snows Stadium
Take the Redbridge Road A33 out of the city, following signs to Totton. Take the A36 slip road and head towards Totton. At the roundabout, take the second exit onto Salisbury Road/A36. Continue on this road for approximately two miles until you reach the next roundabout. Once here, take the second exit. The Snows Stadium will be approximately 100 metres on your right.
There is limited parking on matchdays but you can park on the local industrial estate, which is approximately 100m past the ground at the Calmore Industrial Estate, Brunel Road - just off the nearby roundabout. Parking on the industrial estate is free. There are 8 disabled parking bays on the Snows Stadium site; if you need any special assistance, please contact the club prior to your visit to discuss your specific requirements, either by telephone on 023 8086 8981 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

ESPN published the result of the game online before the Southampton FC website today, although in fairness a match report followed there not long after. I don’t understand why there is no live text commentary on their games. They are clearly far too good for their present league and deserve all the support we can give them in their progress towards the WPL. At least when they reach it they will have earned it unlike certain other teams.
