The midfielder believes there is no better way to kick off the new season than at Ashton Gate and Chance hopes this season can be the catalyst for pushing women’s football forward and developing the sport further.

“It’s the perfect way to start the season, in a stadium such as Ashton Gate. Hopefully we can get a big crowd, put on a good performance for them and get a win.

“Having the World Cup so recently is going to bring people to the game, and with the home Euros in 2021 it’s all positive for the women’s football and hopefully we can build on it.”

Bristol City Women will take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Ashton Gate Stadium on Saturday, September 7th (3pm) and tickets are available here.
