I totally agree it’s an awful decision at this stage but money talks over common sense.Do you know when? Because its not on the WSL website. My opinion of this is that its the worst possible thing, Womens football needs to be on free to air TV to get the widest possible audience, Why the BBC showed PL games they had the biggest audiences ever seen, On Sky they won't get the exposure they need this early in their development. Also no good saying a highlights show will be on free to air TV when they normally are shown in the dead of night.
The BBC would of been ideal choice to grow the game. They have some of the biggest stars in Women’s football in the WSL now but need the general public to see it not just the selected few.
I know that the deal is for next season WSL and they were close to agreeing and announcing it this week.
