This Thursday, the São Paulo Football Federation (FPF) confirmed the dates and times for the Paulistão Feminine 2021. Corinthians faces Ferroviária for a spot in the state’s decision.
As they had the best campaign in the first phase of the competition, Corinthians decides for a place at home. The first confrontation will take place this Saturday, October 16th, at 9 pm, in Araraquara. The return departure will take place on October 31, at 11am. On the other side, Santos and São Paulo play the first semifinal this Sunday at 11:00 am this Sunday. The return will be on November 1st, at 5 pm.
The duels will feature the return of the public to the stadiums in the women’s games. In a statement, Corinthians informed that the fans will return within the limitations imposed by the Government of São Paulo. The club will soon announce the conditions and ways to purchase tickets.
The fans will have several options to follow the semifinal of the competition. O SportTV will broadcast all four games (Corinthians x Railway and São Paulo x Santos).
