Chelsea Ladies will begin their title defence of the FA Women’s Super League 1 with a trip to newly-promoted Doncaster Rovers Belles.

Emma Hayes’ side won the league and cup double last season – the club’s first ever pieces of silverware – and have made several signings over the close season including Birmingham and England striker Karen Carney and Doncaster striker Bethany England.

The 2016/2017 season starts on Thursday 24th March in Yorkshire before a home game four days later against Liverpool Ladies, with the Reds facing Birmingham City in their first game.

The season ends away to Notts County Ladies on Sunday 6 November.
