TAMPA, Fla. – The United Soccer League today announced a partnership with ELEVEN for exclusive global broadcast rights to the USL W League, a new elite pre-professional women’s competition in the United States.
For the W League’s inaugural 2022 season, select matches will be streamed live exclusively on ElevenSports.Com. The complete schedule of W League matches to be live streamed will be announced in the coming weeks.
