SWPL post-split fixtures announced – who does your club start against?

Scottish Women’s Premier League leaders Rangers will visit closest challengers Celtic in the first round of post-split fixtures.

Jo Potter’s side are currently four points clear of their Old Firm rivals and champions Glasgow City, who are at Hearts on March 17.

At the other end, bottom-side Montrose face Dundee United, while Hamilton Accies – who are also on 10 points – play Motherwell.

Elsewhere, Hibernian face Partick Thistle, while Aberdeen play Spartans as the league splits into a top-six and bottom-six with clubs playing each other twice to end the season.

Following the blockbuster Old Firm to kick the post-split fixtures off, Glasgow City then host Celtic on March 31 before visiting Rangers on April 14.

The reverse of those fixtures sees Celtic take on Glasgow City at home on May 1 before visiting Rangers four days later, with Rangers at Glasgow City a week later.

Rangers are at home to Partick Thistle, Celtic host Hibernian and Glasgow City welcome Hearts on the final day of the season.

With Montrose, Hamilton Accies and Dundee United in a battle to stay up, and Spartans only three points ahead of those clubs, there are key games at the other end to look out for too.

Following the bottom two facing off on March 17, Montrose face Hamilton Accies, while Dundee United take on Spartans on March 31.

Spartans then play Montrose on April 14 with Hamilton Academical versus Dundee United three days later.

Accies and Spartans go head-to-head on April 21 with United hosting Hamilton Accies at the start of May.

Days later Montrose face Motherwell again before Spartans are at home to Hamilton Accies the week after.

The season ends with the current bottom two facing off with Hamilton Accies playing Montrose, while Dundee United host Motherwell and Spartans welcome Aberdeen.

‘Looking forward to a fantastic finale’

SWPL managing director Fiona McIntyre said: “Last season gave us one of the most dramatic conclusions ever seen in the Scottish game, with many twists and turns as clubs navigated the post-split fixtures.

“Already, the 2023/24 ScottishPower Women’s Premier League is shaping up to be just as compelling at both ends of the table. Just four points separates the top three teams, and just three points separates the bottom four.

“Every fixture over the next two months will contribute towards the race for the title or battle to avoid relegation.

“The feedback from across the game has been that the split was a welcome addition to the women’s game last season, creating incredible drama and allowing us to showcase the very best of women’s football in Scotland.

“We expect it will have a similar impact this season and we now look forward to a fantastic finale with the title, European qualification, and avoiding relegation all being played for across the next few months. We encourage fans to play their part and to get along to a ScottishPower Women’s Premier League match as we enter the final ten rounds of the season.”
