Women’s home clash with Leeds to be shown on Sky Sports

St.Helens Women's home fixture against Leeds Rhinos has been selected for live Sky Sports coverage!

A repeat of the 2023 Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Final is the first women’s fixture to be announced for TV coverage in 2024.

Both teams begin their domestic campaigns just a few weeks earlier with Leeds set to host Huddersfield Giants at AMT Headingley Stadium (KO 5.30pm) on Friday 19 April before St.Helens travel to reigning BWSL champions York Valkyrie on Sunday 21 April (KO 12pm).

The fixture will now take place at 5:30pm on Friday 24th May at the Totally Wicked Stadium, before the two men’s sides clash at 8pm, as opposed to 2pm on Saturday 25th May.

The last meeting between the two sides took place in the Betfred Women’s Super League Semi-Final at the Totally Wicked Stadium in September. Saints lost out 16-20, following a Sophie Robinson try in golden point extra time.

Those wanting to attend the fixture will need to purchase tickets for the men’s game, with 2024 Members able to come in early and watch the fixture for free as part of their Membership Package.

As announced last week, as Saints announced the women’s side will receive match payments for 2024, you can get involved in sponsoring the women’s side for 2024. You can find out how to sponsor players and our 2024 kits online here

Thomas Brindle, the General Manager of the BWSL, says: “The Betfred Women’s Super League is back with a refined structure this season with eight teams set to compete in the topflight and three regional championships sitting underneath. This is all part of our new national pyramid so it’s going to be a really exciting season.

“The women’s game has grown so much since 2017 which is proven by the number of teams we’ve now had playing at their principal stadia. We also had a record-breaking crowd at the last Grand Final – we’re all looking forward to more of these moments on our screens in 2024.”Jo Osborne, Head of Women’s Sport Sky Sports, said: Women’s sport has so much momentum with UK audiences and our continued partnership with the BWSL is another opportunity for Sky Sports to showcase the elite-level women’s game. Sky Sport’s coverage of the BWSL continues to shine a light on the women’s game through top punditry and analysis from the likes of Jodie Cunningham and Courtney Winfield-Hill who have joined our on-screen talent line up.

“Last year alone we saw record-breaking audiences for the Women’s Ashes, the Solheim Cup and the WSL which is testament to the ever-increasing popularity of women’s sport. As the UK’s biggest investor in women’s sports rights, we understand the opportunities for greater visibility that these leagues and competitions bring, so we can’t wait for another exciting season of the Betfred Women’s Super League.”

Sky Sports will showcase three BWSL fixtures once again this year, in addition to the Semi-Finals and Grand Final, the remaining two broadcast selections will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
