Doncaster Rovers' Belles first game back in FAWSL1 against Chelsea will be shown live on BT Sport.

Glen Harris's side welcome the reigning league champions and FA Cup holders to the Keepmoat Stadium on Thursday, March 24 for the opening match of the new season - and it will be broadcast live by BT.

Belles also host Chelsea on Sunday, March 20, in the fifth round of the SSE FA Women's Cup.

Doncaster won promotion from FAWSL2 last year. They were controversially demoted from the top flight in 2013 after failing to meet FA criteria.
