Women’s Super League TV fixtures: BT Sport reveals televised opening weekend clashes to begin 2019/20 season

A scintillating Manchester derby looks to be the pick of the fixtures as the Women’s Super League kicks off in some style on BT Sport this Autumn.

Fresh from a thrilling summer of Women’s World Cup football in France, the female game continues to build momentum with a brilliant round of opening day games featuring some huge clashes.

Once again, BT Sport will continue to broadcast Women's Super League matches, as well as FA Cup and League Cup matches throughout the 2019/20 season.

The games will be available to watch on TV, BTSport.com and the award-winning BT Sport apps for both mobile and tablet devices, as well as on Xbox, PlayStation, Samsung TV and Apple TV.

Our coverage of the campaign begins with an unmissable showdown between two fierce rivals as newly-promoted Manchester United travel to last year’s runners-up Manchester City.

United were only formed a little over a year ago but stormed to victory in the FA Women’s Championship last season to book their place among the country’s elite for the current campaign.

Coached by former England legend Casey Stoney, the Red Devils will be looking to spring an early shock against the Citizens by picking up their first ever win in the WSL when the two teams go toe-to-toe on Saturday 7th September.

The BT Sport cameras will be at the Etihad Stadium to capture all the action with 10 of England’s World Cup Lionesses set to feature.

FA Cup and League Cup winners City boast nine players from the squad that finished fourth in France – Karen Bardsley, Steph Houghton, Abbie McManus, Demi Stokes, Jill Scott, Georgia Stanway, Keira Walsh, Nikita Parris and Ellen White.

United, meanwhile, were represented at the tournament by 25-year-old defender Alex Greenwood who featured four times, scoring one goal.

The action continues the following day with the reigning league champions, Arsenal, taking on London rivals West Ham United.

Arsenal took the spoils last time these two teams met, overcoming an early deficit on their way to a convincing 4-2 victory thanks to a maverick performance from Dutch World Cup star Danielle van de Donk.

Manager Joe Montemurro can call upon a wealth of experience, including England’s Leah Williamson and Beth Mead, in his talented squad as they look to secure back-to-back WSL titles for the first time ever.

The Hammers, who reached last season’s FA Cup final, will be looking to improve on a seventh-placed league finish under the tutelage of coach Matt Beard.

The game, which kicks off at 2.30pm on Sunday 8th September, will live exclusively live on BT Sport 1 HD.
