FAS’ reply to media query regarding format of Women’s leagues


“The FAS did not suggest a format change at any point during the season. There was a suggestion from a club regarding promotion and relegation, but after careful consideration, the FAS Competitions Committee decided that there will not be any changes to the format of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) and Women’s National League (WNL).

“As previously shared with the clubs before the season, the top two teams of WNL 2017 will be promoted to WPL 2018, while the last placed team of WPL 2017 will be relegated to WNL 2018.

“The FAS would like to eventually see an increase in the number of teams participating in the Women’s leagues, and will continue to work with all stakeholders towards this goal.”
