The FA Player will broadcast more than 150 live fixtures throughout the 2019-20 season

The Football Association will launch a new live streaming platform, exclusively dedicated to women’s football, from the start of the 2019-20 season.

The FA Player, which will be free to use and available online and via a dedicated mobile app, will provide unprecedented live access to over 150 domestic women’s football fixtures throughout the season.

This will include all live Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches and a live match from each round of the FA Women’s Championship for the first time.

In addition to live league coverage, the platform will stream selected match highlights from the England Women’s team, the Women’s FA Cup and the FA Women’s Continental League Cup.

Archive footage and regularly updated features of domestic football and the Lionesses will also be available, giving fans of women’s football unrivalled access to watch some of the best teams and players in the world.

BT Sport and BBC will continue their regular coverage with over 30 live games televised across the 2019-20 season, with The FA Player created to broaden access beyond traditional channels free of charge in a single destination.

Kelly Simmons, FA director of the women’s professional game, said: “This announcement is a pivotal and significant step in The FA’s journey to grow the women’s game and attract new audiences.

“We know people want to watch football in different ways, with content that’s quickly and easily accessible.

“This new live streaming service will give them unique access to over 150 live fixtures in all competitions, all available at the click of a button.

“This will help build on the fantastic coverage BBC and BT Sport give the women’s game on their channels so that fans can enjoy the best of women’s football when and how they wish.”

The FA Player will launch ahead of the Barclays FA WSL season.
