Sky Sports To Increase Commitment To Women's Sport In 2020

Sky Sports has announced plans to increase its commitment to women's sport in 2020 by expanding its existing coverage and strengthening its digital output.

Over decades of committing to high quality coverage, Sky Sports has seen women's sport reach more fans than ever before, with sporting icons such as Katie Taylor and Fallon Sherrock bringing in big audiences.

24 years since first broadcasting women's cricket back in June 1996, more than 1.8 million people watched the 2017 ICC Women's Cricket World Cup final. Sky Sports was also the first broadcaster to show netball in 2004, over the following 16 years popularity has visibly increased as viewing figures saw 550k people tune in to watch as England's Vitality Roses were beaten in a thrilling Netball World Cup semi-final last year.

Now, even more of this incredible live women's sport will be accessible on Sky Sports YouTube channel, enabling new audiences to watch and engage with some of the world's best female athletes. This is supported by a full schedule of live coverage across Sky Sports channels, including Main Event, Action, Arena, cricket, golf and Sky Sports Mix which will show a number of key events this year.

So far in 2020, Sky Sports has live-streamed the Netball Superleague with plenty more to come including, women's cricket, women's major golf tournaments, WNBA and the Women's Six Nations, which is set to reach an exciting climax on 15 March.
