Sky Sports Extends Its Partnership With The Barclays Women’s Super League To Remain The Leading Women’s Sport Broadcaster

Sky has secured the broadcast rights to show up to 44 matches from the Women’s Super League for the 2024/25 season, more than any other broadcaster. The partnership extension means that Sky subscribers can continue to watch the best teams and top players in the League for another season.

Women’s Super League on Sky Sports sits alongside an unrivaled offering of domestic football every season including 128 of best matches from the Premier League, over 1000 EFL fixtures including every match from the League Cup, and the biggest games from the SPFL and SWPL.

It’s a hugely exciting time for women’s football in this country. Extending our partnership with the Women’s Super League with more matches than any other broadcaster is fantastic news for Sky Sports customers.
