Chelsea Women’s Continental League Cup semi-final date confirmed

From the official Chelsea FC website:

Chelsea Women will travel to West Ham United in the FA Continental Tyres League Cup semi-final at the Chigwell Construction Stadium on Thursday 9 February, with kick-off at 7.15pm.

The Blues secured our place in the semi-finals with a 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Brisbane Road in the quarter-finals last week. Goals from Erin CuthbertFran Kirby and Sam Kerr preceded an excellent stoppage-time consolation from Chelsea legend, Drew Spence.

We were the second ball to pulled out of the hat as the semi-final draw was conducted last Thursday. Our encounter against the Hammers promises to be an entertaining affair as we aim to book our place at the showpiece final at Selhurst Park in March.

It is the first piece of silverware up for grabs this season and to be in with a chance of lifting this trophy for the third time in our history, we must navigate a tricky London derby against Paul Konchesky’s West Ham who overcame Liverpool with a late winner away from home to reach the semi-finals.

This is a competition that we have won on two previous occasions. Our maiden League Cup triumph came back in 2020 when we overcame Arsenal at the City Ground, home of Nottingham Forest, while the second came the following year with victory over Bristol City at Watford’s Vicarage Road.

Ticketing and broadcast details for our trip to the Chigwell Construction Stadium on Thursday 9 February are to be confirmed and will be communicated to supporters in due course.
