How to stream Women’s Super League live in the UK for FREE
While BT Sport (opens in new tab) and the BBC (opens in new tab) will once again be showing Women’s Super League matches live this season with both broadcasters showing 30 games live, there’s a pretty dramatic shake up of how WSL matches will be broadcast this year.
For the first time, action from the league will be available for FREE from the start of this season with FA Player (opens in new tab) - a live streaming platform exclusively dedicated to women's football. Available via desktop browsers and via a dedicated Android and iOS app, the service will show over 150 domestic games live including all WSL matches.
For those who prefer more traditional platforms for their WSL coverage, the BBC’s free-to-air broadcasts over the course of the season will be spread over its three main channels as well as its Red Button service. Those matches will also be available via the BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab) online service and app.
Elsewhere, matches on BT Sport‘s subscription service will be spread over its two main channels over the course of the season, while coverage will also be available via the BT Sport app or BTSport.com (opens in new tab) for mobile or PC streaming.
