The FA has confirmed that ESPN's first live FA WSL match next month will be the London derby between Chelsea Ladies and Arsenal Ladies.

The match will take place at Tooting & Mitcham FC and ESPN will start broadcasting at 5pm, although the build-up at the ground will start at 3.30pm featuring a host of pre-match entertainment including free coaching for kids and a surprise appearance from some very special guests.

To celebrate the launch of The FA WSL, Chelsea have introduced some very special prices with tickets available to children for £1 and families for £5 for advance sales.

ESPN will bring viewers six live games from the WSL's inaugural season, with coverage fronted by ESPN presenter Kelly Cates. ESPN will also produce a weekly highlights show that will keep fans up-to-date with all the latest action and be aired on Tuesday evenings.
