Katie Brazier, FA head of women’s leagues and competitions, said: “The FA WSL Spring Series is set to be really exciting and competitive, and we’re really pleased that supporters have so many ways of watching and following the matches this season.

“I’d like to thank our lead league partner BT Sport for their continued support and it’s a really positive step that the BBC are streaming FA WSL games for the first time. Clubs also have more opportunities to stream their games through their own channels.

“It demonstrates that the domestic women’s game is in a really healthy place and we’re looking forward to a season of great football and big crowds.

“We know supporters will really get behind their teams in big numbers at stadiums as in previous seasons. It’s also a chance to see all of the Lionesses in action before they go to the Euros as well as other international players who’ll be playing in the Netherlands.”
