The Football Association Women's Premier League Cup is a cup competition in English Women's association football. It is also referred to as the Women's League Cup as it is the women's equivalent to the men's League Cup, although both competitions are organised by different governing bodies.

The competition is open to the 72 teams in the FA Women's Premier League (Northern and Southern divisions, plus the four Division 1). Unlike the men's League Cup, the women's semi-finals are not done over two legs, as the semi-finals and final venues are usually rented from a men's League team and are thus larger than a usual women's League match venue.

Format[edit]

After the league resrtructuring of the Women's Premier League up to 72 teams are eligible to participate. At first all teams are drawn against each other in the determining round. Eight or six of the 36 or 35 teams remaining are then drawn into a preliminary round, the others receive a bye. Thus 32 teams then play the first round.[1] The losers of the first round play a preliminary round and then a round of 32 onwards for the Premier League Plate.
