LONDON (Reuters) – Barclays will become the first title sponsor of English soccer’s Women’s Super League in a multi-million pound partnership running until 2022, the Football Association announced on Wednesday.

The deal will begin from the 2019-20 season and means that the top tier of women’s soccer in England, which began in its current guise in 2011, will be renamed the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.
