The 2010 X Factor finalists Belle Amie are set to swap the stage for the football arena this month when they entertain crowds at the first ever FA WSL Continental Cup Final. The match, which pits WSL Champions Arsenal Ladies against league runners-up Birmingham City Ladies, takes place on Sunday 25 September at Burton Albion FC. Kick off is 2.15pm and the match will be shown live on ESPN.

The band will be performing their recently launched first single, Girls Up, ahead of the afternoon kick-off. Belle Amie will also be letting fans choose a song for them to sing on stage to help support the FA WSL “Call the shots” campaign, allowing fans to have a say on WSL match-days. For more information on the song options and how to vote, please visit the FA WSL facebook page:

 Tickets for the music and football extravaganza are on sale now, priced at this £5 for adults and £2.50 for children or £10 for a family of four. Fans are encouraged to secure their seats early to avoid disappointment.

Belle Amie are delighted to get the opportunity to sing at the Continental Cup Final, the band said of their appearance:

“We can’t wait to perform in Burton at The FA WSL Continental Cup Final in a few weeks. We played in a football competition in Charlton and Burnley back in June and had a fantastic time. I think we may be able to learn a fair amount from watching the Arsenal and Birmingham ladies teams in action.

“We’re also looking forward to seeing what song you guys want us to play. Don’t worry, we will make sure we perform our new single “Girls Up” including our special dance routine. We hope everyone comes out in force to see us at the final, it should be a great day for everyone.”

A Group Booking discount (minimum 15 people with one adult per 10 children) is available at the cost of £3 for adults and £2 for children.

FA Charter Standard clubs can also apply for up to 25 free tickets for this game by Friday 16 September.
