    24,564 at their first women's super league match at stamford bridge Chelsea v spurs


    Chelsea boss Emma Hayes says the pressure is on the Women's Super League to capitalise on nearly 63,000 people attending the weekend's opening games.

    Manchester City saw a WSL-record crowd of 31,213 attend Saturday's win over Manchester United at Etihad Stadium, while 24,564 watched Chelsea beat Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

    Last season's average attendance in the league was 833.

    Anyone who is interested in football should take a look at those highlights. Excellent stuff. And superb strike for the goal.

    I'm presuming they're part-time, so will have another job. The same as a lot of male players in Scotland.

    When they start getting decent crowds at games (games where people actually have to pay for tickets) and get a TV contract, then they might offer full-time contracts

    Sadly, I can see it going the way of the men's game, with the rich club's picking up the best talent and the traditional clubs just disappearing.

    20hr contracts. It may only be 7k but itís 7k more than any Hibs player gets. Rangers are also building a indoor arena at the training centre (ring any bells). Their womenís team are going to be based there for all training and games. As will the menís reserves. I think in the next 2/3 year Celtic and Rangers will take over at the top. Itís a shame as there was a real opportunity for Hibs.

    Not really.

    Rangers and Celtic are huge clubs with massive amounts of money compared to us. If they choose to start investing relatively heavily in womanís football thereís not that much we can do about it and we certainly couldnít compete with them.

    I assume all the money from the successful European runs will go into the ladies team coffers? Hopefully they reinvest that wisely and they can continue to grow.

    For the group stage in Slovenia. I think they will be happy if expenses are covered to be honest, which i understand is the case.

    For the game on Wednesday, the ticket sales donít look all that great, so the ticket money might cover the general expenses for the night.

    Whether there is any prize money from UEFA for the last 32 iím not sure, anyone know?

    Im sure they get a fair bit more than was on offer last time they were at the same stage. But its still a hard ask to get past this team.
