Optus Sport have launched Women’s Football Oz Style, a dedicated program which covers the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.
The show will feature on the online streaming platform on Thursdays at 8pm and is hosted by former Matilda, Alicia Ferguson.
Before each match-week Ferguson will be joined by current players and coaches, along with some of the all-time greats of women’s football.
“We’ve got eleven players and two coaches featuring in this year’s competition, which means we have a terrific opportunity to showcase some of our homegrown stars to an audience that is truly passionate about top flight football,” Ferguson said.
“The WSL is not only the best women’s football league in the world but also one of the fastest growing, to be able to provide a dedicated program to a football mad audience, is something both the league and Optus Sport should be extremely proud of.
“I’m looking forward to chatting to the likes of Sam Kerr, Hayley Raso and Caitlin Foord to discuss all things football and share their journey in the WSL with our Optus Sport subscribers.
“The girls have already made a mark in week one of the competition, so there will be plenty to talk about,” she concluded.
Optus’ Head of TV & Content Corin Dimopoulos said: “You’ve got some of the best footballers in the world turning out for the Women’s Super League, so it made sense to continue to extend our coverage for our Optus Sport subscribers.
“Optus Sport subscribers love their football, so we saw this as a great opportunity to provide greater awareness and interest in the competition and share the amazing journey and lifestyle that our Aussie footballers and coaches lead overseas.”
