The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced how supporters can watch its games on Thursday. Through an exclusive multiyear partnership with go90 fans in the United States will be able to watch 98 matches live, on-demand, and free. International fans will be able to watch the matches via NWSLsoccer.com or the yet-to-be released NWSL app (iOS).
“We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with go90, and are now positioned to deliver more content than ever before,” NWSL Managing Director of Operations Amanda Duffy said. “With go90’s digital capabilities combined with an enhanced digital broadcast production, we are excited to provide our fans with an entirely new digital experience and eager to introduce NWSL to go90’s rapidly growing soccer audience.”
For those in the United States, Lifetime will also air a NWSL Game of the Week on its channel, mylifetime.com, and through its iOS and Android apps. For those outside of the U.S., the NWSL Game of the Week will be available on NWSLsoccer.com or the NWSL app (iOS).
Fans can download go90’s apps from the App Store or Google Play and can cast the games to TVs via Airplay or Chromecast. Be warned, go90 doesn’t have a desktop app and the go90 platform is ad-supported so expect to see them while the matches are freely available. Vista WorldLink will produce each match in high-definition with a halftime show and brief pregame and postgame shows.
The first go90 match will be Saturday at 2pm ET when the league kicks off its fifth season with a match between the Houston Dash and the Chicago Red Stars. The first Lifetime NWSL Game of the Week debuts at 3pm ET with the Portland Thorns FC hosting the Orlando Pride.
