BBC agrees Women’s Super League deal

The BBC has acquired the exclusive rights to the Women's Super League (WSL) One Spring Series, a one-off transitional soccer competition ahead of the WSL’s switch from a summer to winter calendar for the 2017/18 season.

The British public service broadcaster will show the 20-team soccer league live on its online platforms, while its linear channel BBC 2 will have a highlights magazine called The Women's Football Show. It will also broadcast select games on its various radio channels.

"It's a really positive step that the BBC are streaming FA WSL games for the first time," said Katie Brazier, FA head of women's leagues and competitions. "Clubs also have more opportunities to stream their games through their own channels.

"It demonstrates that the domestic women's game is in a really healthy place and we're looking forward to a season of great football and big crowds."

The first match to fall under the agreement will be the fixture between newly promoted Yeovil Town and Liverpool on 23rd April.
