The Women’s Champions League has an official broadcast partner for the first time in its history, with DAZN showing the games for the next four seasons in partnership with YouTube- the games will be broadcast free of charge globally (with the exception of the Middle East, North Africa and China) for the next two seasons.
A statement on DAZN’s website said, “For the first two seasons (2021-23), fans will be able to watch live and on demand all 61 matches from the group stage onwards on DAZN and free on DAZN’s YouTube channel. For the last two seasons (2023-25), all 61 matches will be live on DAZN while 19 matches will be made available for free on DAZN’s YouTube channel.”
Nadine Kessler, Chief of Women’s Football for UEFA: “This deal is a first for women’s football as this partnership between UEFA and DAZN and YouTube will make sure that the UEFA Women’s Champions League can be seen by the fans, by all the people who love this game, wherever they are on the globe. Such visibility changes everything, as the best female players and best women’s teams in the world can inspire more young girls and boys to fall in love with this sport. Together we are all bringing women’s football to the world and everyone who will tune in will truly make a difference to something bigger.”
