NBC Sports adds FA Women's Super League to English soccer offerings

NBC Sports will carry the FA Women’s Super League for the first time this season.

NBC Sports, which has carried the English Premier League since 2013, will carry 50 WSL matches across NBC Sports platforms, including at least 12 matches on NBCSN.

The first game on NBCSN will be Sunday's match between Manchester United and defending champions Chelsea.

This weekend’s action kicks off on Saturday with promoted Aston Villa against Manchester City live on the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com. Manchester City features 2019 U.S. world champions Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis.

U.S. rights to the WSL were acquired by U.S. Atalanta Media, which has moved into women's soccer with the hope of capitalizing on its growing interest. Atalanta Media is launching AtaFootball.com to provide young girls and fans a digital platform and destination to follow the game.
