The English Football Association hopes to secure sponsorship for a revamped Women’s Super League.
The top four tiers, run by the Football Association have been restructured for the 2018-19 season.
In a report on BBC, the FA’s head of marketing and commercial for women’s football, Marzena Bogdanowicz said, “women’s sport can no longer simply be seen as a “bolt-on” for financial backers of men’s sport,
‘’The new leagues’ names could have title sponsors but no deals have been agreed.
“I would rather make sure we have the right partner, with the right long-term benefit for the game, than to rush anything through for September,
“Any negotiation is going to take time and we’re on a tight timetable, but we’d love to get it done.”
The final list of the clubs to play in each of the revamped divisions in England will not be confirmed until the end of May, as the FA is considering bids from 15 teams hoping to join either tier one or tier two.
Clubs including Manchester United and Southampton have applied to join the new part-time Women’s Championship, while West Ham United are hoping for a place in the top tier.
