The National Women’s Soccer League announced Tuesday that every regular season game in 2014 will be streamed on YouTube.
Many teams made an effort to provide live video of games last year — and some failed — but the league claims to have improved production standards. All games will be streamed in high definition with, according to a news release, “a minimum of three cameras with experienced camera operators to provide better images of the action along with a standardized league-wide graphics package.”
Games will be archived shortly after the final whistle and available for free. In a new feature this season, the NWSL YouTube account will have a highlights package from each game.
You can check out all the teams’ YouTube channels here.
Here is a quote from the release:
“We are very excited to once again offer fans unfettered access to our games via YouTube for the second consecutive season. YouTube is an incredible platform that allows our fans in Canada, Mexico, U.S. and around the world the opportunity to see the high quality of play in the NWSL.” — Cheryl Bailey, NWSL executive director
