Dates have now been confirmed for Blues Ladies' UEFA Women’s Champions League tie against ASD CF Verona.

Blues will host the Italians at Stratford's DCS Stadium on Wednesday 26 September (2pm kick-off) before travelling to the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi in Verona on Wednesday 3 October (8.30pm kick-off local time).

David Parker’s side qualified for the pinnacle of European women’s club football by virtue of finishing runners-up in the 2011 FA Women’s Super League, as did forthcoming opponents Verona in their respective domestic league.

The 2012 FA Women’s Cup holders will also chalk off another historic chapter on Bank Holiday Monday when Stratford Town’s DCS Stadium plays host to its first-ever live televised game on ESPN. Bristol Academy are the opponents (7.30pm kick-off) and admission details can be found here.
