National Women’s Soccer League and FOX Sports announce national broadcast deal

The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and FOX Sports announced an agreement to televise 10 NWSL games during the current season. As part of the deal, FOX Sports 1 will air three regular season matches and all three games of the NWSL Playoffs, which includes two semifinal games on September 13 and the NWSL Championship Game on October 1.

In addition, four regular season matches will be available on tablets and mobile devices via the FOX Sports GO app and online at www.FOXSportsGO.com beginning Wednesday, July 22. The Dash will appear twice on FOX Sports GO and once on FOX Sports 1 during the regular season.

“We are extremely thrilled to once again partner with FOX Sports to broadcast the National Women’s Soccer League to a national audience,” NWSL Commissioner Jeff Plush said. “FOX Sports’ commitment to soccer, and specifically the women’s game, is fully on display during the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Their impressive coverage and outstanding viewership during the tournament demonstrates their passion and dedication for the beautiful game.”

“Our agreement with NWSL showcases our continuing support of women’s soccer well after the champion is crowned at the FIFA Women’s World Cup,” said David Nathanson, FOX Sports’ head of Business Operations. “We are proud to support the sport’s top players through our partnership.”

The Dash will be featured on FOX Sports GO for their matches against FC Kansas City on July 29 and Sky Blue FC on August 7. The club will appear on FOX Sports 1 on August 21 against Seattle Reign FC at 7 p.m. CT. That match was originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on August 22.
