Swans Ladies ready for Champions League opener

21st August 2017

Swansea City Ladies kick off their Uefa Women’s Champions League qualifying round in Romania against Hibernian on Tuesday.

Ian Owen’s side will face the Scottish side at the 30,000-capacity Cluj Arena (11am local time/ 9am GMT).

Three-time Scottish Women’s Premier League winners Hibernian Ladies , who have also won the Scottish Women’s Cup six times and the Scottish Women’s Premier League Cup on five occasions, reached the final 32 of the Champions League in 2017 when they were beaten by Bayern Munich.

“We’re really looking forward to start our UWCL campaign - we know it will be a challenge but we are relishing the opportunity to play on the international stage,” said Swans Ladies striker Stacey John.

Swans Ladies face another two matches during the qualifying round, against Olympia Cluj and WFC-2 Kharkiv.
