I think people have complained actually for the conti cup final. And the FA does not like people complaining actually.
They actually changed the rules published earlier actually ( not made available to the public though, they used to hide those, I got them via a WSL manager every year)
Be careful, hinting about your sources
The FA might stop telling the rules to anybody!
There wasn't a tender or bidding process for this WPL game, I'm told.
Maybe it's part of their aim to double attendances by 2020 – it'll be slightly higher if it's a home match for someone. Still grossly unfair. At least Blackburn's team will have plenty of time to prepare, securing their place this week.
The lack of neutrality is also something that affects the FA Women's Cup semi-finals
, with Man City and Birmingham getting home draws. So, I was slightly taken aback to see this headline this week...Steph Houghton: Women's FA Cup semi-finals should be at neutral venues
...turns out it's from last
year, and she was grumbling after Man City's away defeat. But it's still true. (Note to BBC - your "Beta" site is a year out of date.)
