The draw for the 2023/24 FA Women's Continental League Cup group stages has been made with Manchester City, Aston Villa and Liverpool among the clubs to discover their opponents.

Divided into northern and southern sections, the competition will begin on the 11/12 October, shortly after the Women's Super League season gets underway. The group stages will conclude at the end of January with the final set to take place on March 31 2024.

Given their UEFA Women's Champions League involvement, Chelsea will enter the competition in the group stages. Both Manchester United and Arsenal have qualifiers to get through in Europe, but should they both get knocked out in rounds one or two, they will enter the Conti Cup in the group stages.

Arsenal are the current Conti Cup champions after beating Chelsea in the final at Selhurst Park earlier this year. Sam Kerr opened the scoring for the Blues inside the opening few minutes, but Stina Blackstenius, Kim Little and a Niamh Charles OG ensured a comfortable win in the end for the Gunners.

Here's a look at the group stage draw for the 2023/24 edition...
