ELEVEN AGREES TO GLOBAL DEAL TO STREAM USL W LEAGUE
ELEVEN has partnered with the United Soccer League for exclusive global broadcast rights to the USL W League, a new elite pre-professional women’s competition in the United States.
Select matches from the inaugural 2022 season will be streamed live exclusively on ElevenSports.Com, bringing the 44-club competition to a local, national and global audience. The schedule of W League matches to be streamed will be announced in the coming weeks.
The 2022 W League season kicks off May 6 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 23. The deal builds on a partnership between ELEVEN and the USL that began in December 2019, when ElevenSports.com 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 recognized 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.”
The benefits of this new partnership include:
- Live match coverage from across the entire 2022 campaign, including the regular season, play-offs, and W League final
- Match highlights watchable instantaneously, and recaps available shortly after the final whistle
- All previously broadcast matches and content available to catch-up on demand, 24/7
