Women’s football on TV: Partnerships vital for growth

20 November 2023

Interest in women’s football is unprecedentedly high, with record attendances, TV audiences and importantly participation.

Investment into the Women’s Super League is critical to the long-term success of the game. Strong broadcast partnerships must continue to play a vital role.

WSL viewing is low but increasing. Currently, it is a cost-effective filler for Sky, and good for the BBC’s profile. Rights value should rise but the WSL needs broadcasters more than they need the WSL.
