BT Sport is enabling fans to watch the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final between Chelsea and Barcelona without a subscription.
BT Sport’s coverage from 7.15pm (8pm KO) on Sunday 16 May will be available to watch via the award-winning BT Sport App and btsport.com, plus, the BT Sport YouTube channel (youtube.com/btsport). Subscribers will also continue to enjoy access as normal on BT Sport 2 via BT TV, the Sky Satellite platform, Virgin Media, and a range of connected devices.
Emma Hayes’ Chelsea will face Barcelona in a match-up where neither team has previously lifted the trophy. Chelsea, the first English women’s football club to reach the final since Arsenal in 2006-07, are on track for a domestic league and European cup double, following on from their domestic league success last season.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “Showing the highly anticipated UEFA Women’s Champions League Final advances our commitment to women’s sport, alongside BT’s partnerships with each of the four UK “Home Nations” Football Associations to inspire girls and women to participate in football. We hope making the game accessible to all without a subscription will encourage new fans to watch and engage with women’s football during this exciting period for the game.”
