The Football Association (FA) has announced that the Women’s Super League (WSL) and Women’s Championship will go under rebranding. The name of the two competitions will be changed before the start of the 2022/23 season.
The Football Association is the governing body of association football in England and the Crown Dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.
WSL was previously called the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and the women’s championship was known as the FA Women’s Championship.
Along with retaining the sponsorship of the WSL, Barclays has become the new title partner for the Championship and ‘The FA’ has been removed from both leagues’ titles.
From the 2022/23 season, the WSL will be branded as the Barclays Women’s Super League (BWSL), while the Championship will be known as the Barclays Women’s Championship (BWC).
Barclays is a British multinational universal bank, headquartered in London, England. It is the official sponsor of the Premier League (PL). The partnership between Barclays and the English top-flight has been one of the most successful and long-lasting in sports.
