The New London City Lionesses Cleared For The Women’s Championship

With all of the excitement of the Women’s World Cup, it’s easy to forget that we are getting ready for the new football season with many clubs already starting pre-season training. 

In Women’s Championship news, London City Lionesses, a side created from Millwall Lionesses have been approved to continue playing in the Women’s Championship for the 2019-20 season.

The Lionesses finished bottom last season and those involved in the club made the decision to ended their affiliation with the men’s Millwall team last season.

A Football Association spokesperson confirmed applications to “transfer its licence to a new entity and change its playing name” had been approved. The team will continue to participate in the FA Women’s Championship.”

The club will continue to play out at Princes Park. There is very little about the club online but with bold statements like “A new kind of football.” What this means I have no idea but am excited to see how the club develops.
