Liverpool Women will play at Anfield for the first time when they take on Everton in November.

Liverpool FC Women will play their first ever game at Anfield next month when they host Everton for a historic Merseyside derby.

The match will form part of the FA's Women's Football Weekend during the men's international break on Sunday, November, 17.

Liverpool FC CEO Peter Moore, who is also chairman of Liverpool FC Women, said: "This is a historic moment for women's football on Merseyside. "We're incredibly proud to have our women's team play their first league game at Anfield and for it to be a Merseyside derby against Everton makes it extra special.

"Our fans now have the opportunity to watch our women's team at our spiritual home and I'm sure it will be a memorable occasion."

There have been several showcase fixtures in the Women's Super League this season with 31,000 people watching Manchester City defeat Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on the opening day.

Chelsea's Stamford Bridge and West Ham's London Stadium have also hosted women's matches, both against Spurs, reaching attendances of 24,000. Liverpool manager Vicky Jepson said she was thrilled her side would get the chance to play on the Anfield turf.

"It is always special to represent a club like Liverpool but to do so at our home stadium is a fantastic prospect," she said.

"It's a great chance for us to introduce our women's team to a whole new group of Reds supporters and quite simply we can't wait."

Both teams won their homes against one another last season and Everton manager Willie Kirk is hoping Blues fans turn out in numbers to cheer his side on.

"Any Merseyside derby means so much to fans of both clubs and this will be a big occasion for the teams.

"Hopefully we can build on the growing popularity of women's football, shown by some fantastic attendances at the Etihad, Stamford Bridge and the London Stadium, and put on a show."

We hope for a packed-out crowd and to have as many Evertonians as possible cheering us on."

Adult tickets for the game, which will kick-off at 3pm, will cost £5 with up to three accompanying children (under 16) for free to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the occasion.

Season ticket holders and LFC Official Members will be able to access the game for free as normal but will need to secure their tickets in advance at

This is verry interesting and it's going to be a historic Merseyside Derby. Hopefully it will draw a large crowd to this event.
