No Sunderland AFC Ladies in the list though
"However, the creation of the new two tier Premier League structure has not been without controversy after Sunderland Ladies, who finished seventh in the top division last season, were denied a place in either of the two restructured leagues, despite applying to continue in the second tier.
Sunderland’s place in the Premier League has been given to West Ham, who along with Brighton, are the new arrivals into the 11 team elite group.
That means there will be no teams located north of Manchester in the Premier League next season, with just two, Durham Women and Doncaster Belles, in the Championship.
“Sunderland have been offered a place in tier 3 and we are waiting to hear back from them as to whether they will be accepting that offer,” said Katie Brazier, the FA’s Head of Women’s Leagues and Competitions.
“There are clubs who will be disappointed with the decisions that have been made and they have 14 days to appeal if they want to challenge it.
“Sunderland were given the first opportunity, as an existing WSL1 club to apply for a place last year, but they were one of three clubs who declined to do so, which meant they no longer had preferred bidder status.
“I think that was down to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the ownership of the club. They did subsequently apply in the open bidding process, but they were up against a number of other clubs who have a firm commitment, both in terms of investment and resources, to grow the women’s game. Unfortunately, there were stronger bids.” "
