All WSL games will be streamed live free of charge as from next season. This means all of Arsenal Women’s league games will be available free of charge and un-geoblocked as from next season. The FA will launch the FA Player app on 2nd September, which will show every WSL game live, as well as selected Conti Cup, Women’s FA Cup and England internationals.
BBC and BT Sport will continue to show live games on their channels in the UK, but the FA Player app represents a game changer for live coverage of the Women’s Super League. Games will be viewable in all territories across the globe. The move aims to capitalise on the interest in this summer’s Women’s World Cup.
✨ The new home for women's football ✨

With Spurs and Manchester United promoted to the WSL this season, the Premier League’s top 6 men’s sides are represented in the top flight of women’s football for the first time. Making the games freely available globally also aims to tap into the worldwide fan bases of England’s biggest clubs.
The FA’s director of the women’s professional game, Kelly Simmons, 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.”
Arsenal begin their FAWSL season on Sunday, 8th September with a home match against West Ham United which you will be able to watch live through the app.
