Scottish Women’s Premier League post-split fixtures: Rangers host Celtic live on Sky, Glasgow City visit Hibernian

Must read

Defending champions Rangers will host second-place Celtic in the first round of matches following the Scottish Women’s Premier League split – live on Sky Sports.

The Old Firm clash at Broadwood Stadium, on Monday March 27, will be the first league fixture shown on Sky Sports.

Celtic are currently second, a point ahead of Rangers in third, while leaders Glasgow City maintain a six-point gap at the top and visit Hibernian in the first round of matches after the split.

Sky Sports Director of Football, Gary Hughes, said: “With just one point separating Celtic and Rangers, as they battle with Glasgow City for the title, we’re looking forward to bringing our viewers action from the first Old Firm league match live on Sky Sports since we started showing the SWPL last year. We’re excited to showcase an exciting match on and off the pitch.”

Celtic beat Rangers 3-0 in the last SWPL meeting between the clubs

Elsewhere – on the weekend of March 25 – Hamilton Accies take on rivals Motherwell in a bid to move out of the relegation play-off spot, while Aberdeen – who are just two points clear of 10th – visit bottom-club Glasgow Women.

Partick Thistle – fresh from sealing their place in the top six – welcome Hearts, while Dundee United take on Spartans.

There are another two huge games on April 16 as Glasgow City host Celtic in a potentially pivotal game in the title race, while Hamilton Accies head to Aberdeen as both clubs bid to boost their survival hopes.

Just three days after facing Celtic, Glasgow City will then welcome Rangers to Petershill Park on April 19.

Glasgow City’s Leanne Ross says there is ‘a long way to go’ in the SWPL title race after being named permanent head coach

With the title at stake, Women’s Champions League spots up for grabs and the battle to avoid the relegation play-off spot finely poised – there is plenty to play for over the next 10 rounds of matches, as each team plays every other side in their half of the table twice between now and the end of May.

SWPL managing director Fiona McIntyre said: “The 2022/23 season has already proved to be one of the most compelling and competitive in the history of the SWPL.

“The split adds an exciting new dynamic and one which has been well received by all stakeholders in the women’s game.

“We are delighted to confirm the schedule for the remainder the season. Every fixture over the next two months will contribute towards the race for the title or battle to avoid relegation and we can expect plenty of drama as we reach the conclusion of the inaugural season under this new format.

“We look forward to welcoming fans along to enjoy what we anticipate will be a fantastic finale with the title, European qualification, and avoiding relegation all being played for.”
