Dons to host 2014 FA Women’s Cup Final

15 February 2014

MK Dons are delighted to confirm this season’s FA Women’s Cup Final will be staged at stadiummk on Sunday 1 June.

The showpiece match, which will kick-off at 4.30pm, will be broadcast live on BBC 2 for the second successive season.

The FA Girls’ Youth Cup Final will also take place at stadiummk earlier in the day (1pm kick-off).

It will be the fifth FA game to be held at stadiummk since it’s opening in 2007, following three men’s Under-21 victories against Bulgaria, Azerbaijan and Finland. Brian Eastick’s Under-19 side defeated Russia 3-1 in Milton Keynes in 2008.

Vice Chairman of The FA Women’s Committee, Elaine Oram, said: “We thank Milton Keynes Dons for agreeing to host what is traditionally the biggest and most high-profile domestic women’s match of the season.

“We were impressed with the enthusiasm they showed to stage The Final on our behalf and we are sure they will do a magnificent job, with the help of the City Council and the Berks and Bucks County FA.

“And to once again have the support of the BBC is absolutely fantastic. The BBC broadcast all three of England Women’s home World Cup qualifiers last year and we look forward to more excellent coverage of women’s football throughout 2014.”

Tickets for The Final will go on sale on Friday 21st February.

This season’s competition is currently at the Fourth Round stage. The eight FA WSL 1 clubs will enter the fray in Round Five.

MK Dons Ladies, unfortunately, are no longer involved in the tournament, bowing out at the Second Round stage after a 3-0 defeat to Charlton Athletic.
