CBS to broadcast FA Women’s Super League as part of multi-year partnership


CBS Sports will bring coverage of the FA Women’s Super League to the United States through a multi-year partnership beginning in 2022.

The network will broadcast 57 FAWSL matches during the 2022-23 and 2023-24 seasons, with the majority streaming on Paramount+ and a select number airing on CBS Sports Network.

“The Barclays FA Women’s Super League features some of the most recognizable soccer brands in the world, and is an excellent addition to CBS Sports’ premium soccer portfolio,” said Dan Weinberg, CBS Sports’ Executive Vice President of Programming. “We look forward to bringing the exciting action of the BFAWSL to fans across Paramount+ and CBS Sports Network. With our wide array of soccer properties and robust year-round match coverage, we are a must-have for soccer fans.”

The Women’s Super League is home to stars such as the U.S. women’s national team’s Tobin Heath and Australia’s Sam Kerr, the all-time leading goal scorer in NWSL history. The partnership expands CBS’ coverage of women’s sports, which already includes the NWSL, Athletes Unlimited and other soccer leagues.

“We are delighted to be partnering with CBS Sports for the next two seasons and are looking forward to the coverage they beam to households across the United States,” said James Ralley, the Football Association’s head of broadcast and media rights. “Their delivery of soccer, whether men’s or women’s, is of the highest quality, and their reputation within the industry is one that is growing rapidly. We look forward to working with them over the next few years.”
