Women’s Football on the BBC


BBC Three

From the Super League to the FA Cup to the World Cup qualifiers, BBC television and BBC Radio 5 live sports extra will be home to more women’s football than ever before over the next 12 months.
As the domestic season continues apace, the Women’s Football Show on BBC Three & HD remains the focal point of the BBC’s television coverage, as Jacqui Oatley brings all the goals and talking points from the Super League and beyond. Tina Daheley continues in her role as roving reporter – meeting players, managers and fans from now until the climax of the season in October. Faye White and Sue Smith are among the regular guests on the show, bringing their wealth of knowledge and experience to the programme. Viewers can also follow the Super League on the BBC Sport website for all the latest news and interviews.

Later this month attention turns to England’s World Cup qualifier away to Wales on 21 August and the match will be shown live on BBC Three & HD.

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra remains the go-to network for women’s football, with continued live commentaries from the Super League until the end of the current season. WSL players feature alongside the commentary team, bringing their expertise, unique awareness and knowledge of the game to audiences. Extensive access to clubs, alongside interviews with players and coaches, ensures audiences are also given exclusive insights as the WSL goes from strength to strength.

The BBC Sport website has a twice weekly goals round-up video throughout the WSL season with regular match reports, online goal highlights, news and team-by-team previews features. England matches are also streamed on the BBC Sport website, on desktop, mobiles, tablets and BBC Sport app.

Looking ahead, 2015 is set to be a thrilling year for women’s football, as the FA Cup gets underway in February. The Women’s Football Show and BBC Radio 5 live sports extra will have the very latest news as current holders Arsenal chase their 15th title and BBC Two will once again have all the build-up and full match coverage of the FA Cup final. From there BBC television, radio and online will look ahead to the highly anticipated World Cup in Canada from 6 June – 5 July 2015. Full details of the BBC’s coverage will be announced at a later date.
