BT Sport is making the eagerly anticipated Barclays FA Women’s Super League Manchester derby available to all for free – part of a packed season with more women’s football broadcast than ever before on the network.

As part of its coverage of the upcoming Women’s Football Weekend, BT Sport’s coverage of Manchester City v Manchester United on Saturday 14 November (on air from midday) will be free to view in the UK via the BT Sport app, and YouTube ( The match, only the second league meeting between the local rivals, is also live to subscribers on BT Sport 1. The inaugural clash between the clubs ended in a 1-0 victory for City last season.

The match forms part of a BT Sport double header over Women’s Football Weekend, with BT Sport 1 also bringing subscribers coverage of Arsenal v Chelsea on Sunday 15 November (on air from 2pm). The two most successful sides in WSL history will square off at Meadow Park as Chelsea continue their campaign to defend the league title. The journey to Boreham Wood will be a stern test for the champions, as Arsenal sit atop the WSL with the league’s only 100% win record after five games, having scored a remarkable twenty-nine goals already.

Over the entire season, BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch at least 22 live Barclays FA Women’s Super League football matches. Additional coverage features the FA Women’s Continental League Cup and Women’s FA Cup. BT Sport’s FA WSL football coverage is led by presenters Clare Balding, Jules Breach, Natalie Quirk and Reshmin Chowdhury, alongside former England internationals Karen Carney and Rachel Brown Finnis, with commentators including Adam Summerton and Lucy Ward.
