City Women To Play Millwall In FA Cup

Bristol City Women will play Millwall Lionesses at home in FA Cup fifth round on Sunday, March 19th.

The draw was made by pupils Julianna Guerra Calvo, 15, and Jessica Mendes, 15, at Hornsey School for Girls in London on Monday, February 20th. 

City Women will take on WSL2 side Millwall Lionesses at the Stoke Gifford Stadium on Sunday, March 19th (KO 2pm)

This year's Final will also take place at Wembley on Saturday, May 13th with kick-off now confirmed for 5.15pm.

The fifth-round ties will be played on the same day in March and each winning club will receive £3,000 from The FA prize fund.

This season each draw will take place at a school and be made by pupils as part of SSE's new partnership with education charity Teach First.

By involving pupils in the draws and bringing female footballers to speak to young people in the classroom, the activity aims to encourage more girls to get involved with grassroots football projects and provide inspirational role models to schools in low-income communities.

John Stewart, SSE’s director of human resources, said: “We are extremely proud to sponsor the SSE Women’s FA Cup and to see the number of people attending The Final growing year on year.

“It’s been an exhilarating tournament so far, with more excitement to come as the WSL 1 teams enter in round five.

“We hope to see another record breaking crowd at The Final later this year and we’ll again be giving our customers access to special offers and the chance to win money-can’t-buy experiences at this fantastic family day out.”

Tickets for The Final are already on sale and thanks to The FA’s partnership with SSE, children can attend for free.

Adult tickets are priced £15 and group booking and Charter Standard discounts apply.

Tickets can be bought via TheFA.com/Tickets or by calling 0844 826 2010.

Fifth round draw:

Notts County v Yeovil Town
Liverpool v Everton
Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur
Sunderland v Aston Villa
Birmingham City v West Bromwich Albion
Bristol City v Millwall Lionesses LFC
Manchester City v Reading
Chelsea v Doncaster Rovers Belles
