The inaugural Kappa Women’s Super Cup roars into life this weekend as 32 teams from eight regions get the groundbreaking women’s knockout tournament underway.
Football Queensland is excited to be live streaming three fixtures as part of its Female Football Week celebrations, including these crackers:
- Souths United v Brisbane City – Wakerley Park – Friday, 8:00pm
- MA Olympic v Brothers Townsville – 1300SMILES Active Park – Saturday, 8:00pm
- Holland Park Hawks v Rockville Rovers – Whites Hill Reserve – Sunday, 4:00pm
Full Fixture List
The first kick in the Kappa Women’s Super Cup is officially set to take place at Apex Park in Yeppoon at 6:15pm on Friday evening when hosts Capricorn Coast FC, the runners-up in Rockhampton last season, face Frenchville FC.
Then, on Saturday afternoon, attention turns to Gladstone for the clash between Clinton FC and Central FC.
Central claimed the honours when the teams met in their local Grand Final last November, giving Clinton an extra incentive going into this game.
Two other Central Queensland sides, Bluebirds United and Nerimbera FC, have a Round 2 fixture scheduled for next Saturday, 12 March.
Weather permitting, there’s a massive match in store for the live stream at 1300SMILES Active Park.
MA Olympic and Brothers Townsville went toe to toe in the FQ North Premier Women’s decider in 2020 and the two meet again at 8:00pm this Saturday night.
MA Olympic shaded the previous encounter, prevailing 1-0 in a tight Grand Final, and know a date with Saints Eagles Souths awaits the winner.
Far North Queensland
Just two points separated Stratford Dolphins and Innisfail United after their regular season games last season, so a knockout encounter in the Kappa Women’s Super Cup should prove to be extremely competitive.
It’s a 3:00pm kick-off in Cairns, with a spot against Mareeba United in Round 2 up for grabs.
There are two Round 2 matches lined up in Mackay, beginning with Magpies FC up against Country United from 7:30pm on Friday night at Sologinkin Oval.
The following night, at 6:00pm, is when the region’s reigning Premier Women’s title holders get involved.
Mackay Lions will be looking to go deep into the tournament but must first overcome Mackay Rangers.
South East Queensland
Clubs from Brisbane, South West Queensland, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast are all in the mix in Round 2, which begins with Maroochydore FC’s home game against Sunshine Coast FC at 7:00pm on Friday night.
The first live stream clash between Souths United and Brisbane City starts an hour later and there are plenty of other fascinating fixtures to keep an eye on over the course of the weekend.
Inter-zone matches include Bribie Island Tigers’ big test against NPL Women’s heavyweights Gold Coast United (5:00pm Saturday), Palm Beach SC’s meeting with Highfields FC (3:00pm Sunday), and Holland Park Hawks’ hit-out against Rockville Rovers, which will be shown live on NPL.TV or Facebook from 4:00pm on Sunday.
The unique match-ups are bound to bring a whole new dimension to what is a landmark tournament for Queensland and Australia.
