Good news for football fans: The upcoming Chelsea versus Barcelona match, in the UEFA Women’s Champions League final, will be streamed for free by BT Sport, without the need for a subscription.
Chelsea will play against Barcelona next Sunday, May 16, at Gamla Ullevi, Gothenburg, Sweden (see below for a guide on how to watch it).
Neither team have previously won these finals, which makes for a tense encounter.
Chelsea, the first English women’s football club to reach the final since Arsenal in 2006-07, are on track for a domestic league and European cup double, following on from their domestic league success last season.
The UEFA Women’s Champions League matches normally air on BT Sport in the UK, for paying subscribers only.
For the final, however, BT Sport has decided to make the game free-to-watch for everyone.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “Showing the highly anticipated UEFA Women’s Champions League Final advances our commitment to women’s sport, alongside BT’s partnerships with each of the four UK ‘Home Nations’ Football Associations to inspire girls and women to participate in football.
“We hope making the game accessible to all without a subscription will encourage new fans to watch and engage with women’s football during this exciting period for the game.”
