Manchester United Women to face Liverpool in first game
Manchester United Women will play Liverpool in their first match since the previous team was disbanded in 2005 after they were drawn together in the League Cup group stage as the fixtures for the 2018-19 season were released by the FA on Wednesday.
Champions Chelsea open their Super League campaign at home to 2016 winners Manchester City on the same weekend.
The Championship will have 12 teams comprising a mixture of full-time and part-time.
The third-tier National League has six regional sub-divisions at amateur level.
The fixtures for the FA Women’s Cup, which was won by Chelsea last season, will be announced at a later date.
