BBC Sport Womens football – Women’s Football on BBC Sport

BBC sport womens football has been a pioneer of female-focused sports coverage, which has seen women’s football become increasingly popular. Coverage of the World Cup is one example of their recent coverage, which was integrated into the ‘Change the Game’ campaign, which aims to change the way women’s football is perceived. In order to further push the cause, BBC sport’s 2019 World Cup coverage was preceded by a rap video starring ‘Ms Banks’. It features lines such as ‘get into the zone’ and ‘go harder than all my brothers’.

UEFA Women’s EURO 2022

If you’re looking for a football fix this summer, you’ll find the UEFA Women’s EURO on BBC Sport. The event was a huge success in 2017, and UEFA has now vowed to keep it on BBC Sport for as long as it’s being held in the UK. The BBC will be providing a wide range of coverage including live commentary, in-play stats, player ratings, features, columns and more. The BBC’s website will also feature video clips and match highlights. And BBC Sounds’s Daily Euros Podcast will be covering all the latest news on the tournament.

UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 will be hosted in the UK for the first time in almost 20 years. The first match, England’s 4-0 demolition of Sweden, was the most-watched game in the UK. The peak television audience for the match was 9.3 million on BBC One, with a further two million people streaming it online. The average audience was 7.9 million, with the final’s score of 1-0 in favour of England.

Coverage of the Women’s Super League

The BBC has secured the broadcast rights for the Women’s Super League for a minimum of 35 matches over three years. BBC One and BBC Two will show all the games, with the rights to broadcast the full competition being extended. This deal will also give the Women’s Super League a wider audience, as the league will be screened on free-to-air television for the first time. The BBC will also continue to broadcast live games in the FA Cup, with the live coverage to be on BBC One and BBC Two.

The BBC will broadcast the first domestic women’s league match on network television, with Everton v Manchester City on Saturday at 13:30 BST. BBC Sport coverage will also include the popular Women’s Football Show. In addition, Sky Sports will air the WSL matches alongside the Premier League and Bundesliga. This will provide a much more diverse and engaging viewing experience. The BBC has also announced the launch of a dedicated women’s football website.


The BBC have received hundreds of complaints over an article in which they called England’s women’s team all-white and said that this showed that there was a lack of diversity in the game. The BBC’s main channel and website will broadcast every game. However, the article did not say what BBC was planning to do with the articles. However, BBC Sport has stated that it will keep the comments on the website anonymous.

BBC Sport’s coverage of the Women’s Euro 2022 will feature a strong team of commentators. Presenter Gabby Logan will be joined by Jonathan Pearce, Robyn Cowen and Vicki Sparks. Euro 2022 is shaping up to be the biggest women’s tournament in history, with tickets already selling out. The competition is also expected to draw a huge audience, with 250 million viewers expected to tune in.

Punditry team

The BBC has joined ITV and Sky Sports in hiring a team of female pundits to commentate on the World Cup this summer. The inclusion of women in punditry positions is a welcome change, with sexism being a topic of conversation in both sports. The World Cup has exposed the lack of gender equality in football and the media, as male pundits have been accused of patronising language and a female ex-footballer recently complained about the pitch of their voice.

The team will feature players and ex-players with extensive experience of women’s football, including Fara Williams, Kelly Smith and Alex Scott. Alex Scott has represented England at the Euros and played for Arsenal, where she won a historic quadruple. She also won several trophies with Arsenal, becoming a familiar face on the BBC’s women’s football coverage. Also joining the team will be the legendary English player, Kelly Smith, who won 46 international goals and was capped 111 times by England.

‘Change the Game’ campaign

The ‘Change the Game’ campaign for BBC Sport women’s football launched with an aggressive rap video by ‘Ms Banks’. With lines like ‘go hard as all my brothers’, this rap video aims to change the way people see women’s football. It will run throughout the summer to increase awareness of the sport and encourage fans to get behind the teams. However, it doesn’t stop there.

The new ‘Change the Game’ campaign is a multi-faceted effort aimed at increasing interest and coverage of women’s sport. The campaign will cover major sporting events such as the FA Cup Final, FIFA Women’s World Cup, Netball World Cup, Wimbledon and the Women’s Ashes. The campaign will also feature podcasts and documentaries and online strands. ‘Change the Game’ will be rolled out across all BBC channels.

Lack of diversity in commentators

Eilidh Barbour recently criticised England’s women’s football team for a lack of diversity, a comment that sparked an angry backlash on social media. While other prominent commentators were quick to condemn Barbour’s comments, former England players also defended her. She went on to claim that the white players represented the nation’s lack of diversity. Barbour’s comments were the result of an underlying racial prejudice.

The lack of diversity in women’s football commentators has arguably been a contributing factor in the emergence of the game. The USA’s women’s national team is one of the most successful in history. Meanwhile, Surinamese players dominate both male national teams and club teams. Barbour’s comments come just days after the BBC apologized for showing a picture of black Chelsea star Raheem Sterling.
