The PFA W-League Stadium Ratings are voted on by the visiting captain or PFA Delegate at the end of each match, who rate each criteria out of five, with five being the highest or best. The aim of the ratings is to increase the awareness of safety and the importance of first-class surfaces. Additionally they also recognise the fans as a key pillar for the growth of the W-League.
