Venues and ground-shares 2018-19 Can't Post or Reply Privately

It can be hard to keep up with the ground-shares in the women's game so if you're aware of a club switching venue please do share!

To start the ball rolling, in the Women's Championship:

- Manchester United will be a rare case of a team having their own ground, as they've announced they will be at The Cliff (Lower Broughton Road, Salford) which was once the main MUFC training ground and is still used for youth teams. One for the hoppers, there, but worth checking nearer the time as I've seen it suggested that the ground needs work to bring it up to standard.

- Charlton Athletic have announced a move and will now be sharing at VCD Athletic in Crayford.



Cambridge City - on a tour of places we've never heard of and can't spell.

Is that the pitch seen in old training footage with the run down covered standing area? And, more importantly, will public access be allowed?

Yes it's the old training ground - and why wouldn't they allow the public in? Surely it's a criteria of being accepted into the league...

The whole point of WSL is to raise the profile of women's football and crowds are a large part of that. Any team in the top two tiers (and indeed the third and fourth) is going to be charging for admission and offering programmes.

Wikipedia says The Cliff was United's training ground from 1933 to 1999, so training images from that period will have been there.

The previous MU Women's team played there.
I saw then play Newsham PH in the FA Women's Cup 1 on 26/10/03 (2-0). There was no problem with access to the game.
