National Women’s Soccer League games will begin airing on Lifetime in April, marking the first time in the NWSL’s history that a league game will be broadcast on television every weekend of the season.
Under the three-year deal, the “NWSL Game of the Week on Lifetime” will air every Saturday on the channel at 4 p.m. ET, with a pre-game show at 3:30 p.m. ET, from April through September. Lifetime will be featured on all official jerseys with a patch on the right sleeve.
“This partnership is not only tremendously significant in the continued growth of the NWSL, but representative of how far the league has come in four years and where it can go in the future,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati.
