Eleven to stream USL W League globally
April 7, 2022
Eleven has partnered with the United Soccer League for exclusive global broadcast rights to the USL W League, a new pre-professional women’s competition in the US.
Select matches from the inaugural 2022 season will be streamed live exclusively on the Eleven Sports website, bringing the 44-club competition to a local, national and global audience. The schedule of W League matches to be streamed will be announced soon.
The 2022 W League season kicks off May 6th with Indy Eleven playing host to Kings Hammer FC. Over a 10-week regular season, teams from seven divisions compete for playoff spots and a chance to reach the 2022 W League Final on July 23th. The deal builds on a partnership between Eleven and the USL that began in December 2019, when Eleven began broadcasting USL League Two.
Diego Compaire, Director of Content and Partnerships, ElevenSports.com, said: “The W League is an exciting new competition, and we’re looking forward to bringing it to fans around the world. We’re also delighted to further strengthen our partnership with the United Soccer League.”
Court Jeske, Executive Vice President, United Soccer League, said: “Making our games accessible is a top priority for the USL W League, and this partnership with Eleven delivers live matches to fans on any device, anywhere. Eleven is a globally recognised soccer destination and an excellent partner for the USL. This agreement gives the W League unrivalled visibility that will fuel the league’s growth, amplify club brands and provide players a platform to advance their careers.”
