When is it, predictions, and how to watch on TV

The Women’s FA Cup prize fund will increase to £3 million from next season, the Football Association has announced.

The FA has not specified how the new amount will be allocated but said a disproportionate part of it will be invested in the early rounds of the competition.

“It’s going to benefit so many clubs across the women’s football pyramid,” Sue Campbell, the FA’s director of women’s football, said in a statement.

“This increased investment highlights that we want clubs competing in it to be rewarded, while also highlighting our ongoing commitment to the women’s game.

“Women’s football continues to be in a growth phase and we are always looking to make improvements and investment to drive it forward and break new boundaries.”

The current prize money for winning the Women’s FA Cup is £25,000, with £15,000 going to the runner-up.

What happened last year?

Sam Kerr and Fran Kirby tormented Arsenal as Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 win in front of 40,942 fans at Wembley

Manager Emma Hayes labelled Kirby a “national treasure” and Kerr “the best striker in the world”, after they fired Chelsea to a third Women’s FA Cup which sealed a domestic treble for the 2020-21 season.

What is our prediction?

Chelsea are in fine fettle having just defended their WSL title on the final day of the season, but City have had a barnstorming end to their own campaign to seal a Champions League spot.

Expect Hayes’ side to come out on top in a high-quality encounter – and it would be no surprise if Kerr is the difference maker yet again

Predicted score: Chelsea 3 Manchester City 1
