12 August 2021

Burnley FC Women will play their home fixtures at the Wham Stadium for the upcoming 2021/22 campaign.

The team, who compete in the third tier of women's football, will travel to Sheffield FC Women for their first game of the season on Sunday 15th August, before welcoming Nottingham Forest Women to their new home the following weekend.

Stanley Managing Director David Burgess said: "It's an exciting opportunity for us to work alongside Burnley FC and with Burnley FC Women's football team. We are building closer relationships with Burnley FC which has meant the season-long loan signing of Joel Mumbongo and the groundshare with Burnley FC Womens team.

"Our ground staff have worked extremely hard on the pitch during the off-season and we are sure the Burnley FC Women will enjoy playing at the Wham Stadium."

Burnley FC Chairman Alan Pace said: "It's great to be working with Accrington Stanley in this new development for our women's team.

"Since taking over operations of the team in February this year, we outlined the intention to professionalise the women's set-up, in a bid to boost women's football. It is part of our long-term strategy to increase the team's presence, infrastructure, and investment, with the news of our new home ground signifying this commitment.

"It's an exciting time for women's football at Burnley FC, we have implemented a number of changes so far already and there are more to come.

"Now the fixtures have been released, we are all looking forward to the league campaign starting in August and to calling the Wham Stadium home."

The agreement is subject to EFL Board ratification.
