None of the competing teams will be able to field their summer signings in the games. 5 substitutions will be permitted in the games but it’s difficult to see how some of the teams involved, Arsenal included, will be able to field five senior substitutes. At the moment, the WSL is slated to start on Sunday, 5th September. Having finished 3rd on points per game in last season’s WSL, Arsenal will have to win the tournament to qualify for next season’s competition.
