BT Sport have disclosed the first batch of games selected to be broadcast live on BT Sport 1 or 2.

Arsenal have been chosen for two out of the seven games to be shown on TV.

The Gunners’ second League game, on Easter Bank Holiday Monday, a potential title decider away to Manchester City Women has been selected, as well as the home tie about a month later against title holders, and rivals, Chelsea Ladies.

It is not a surprise to see the games against the main title contenders being shown live on TV and both should be top quality games to showcase women’s football to the masses.

Here is the full list of game chosen by BT :

Doncaster Rovers Belles v Chelsea
7.15pm, 24 March (BT Sport 1)
Manchester City v Arsenal
2.30pm, 28 March (BT Sport 1)
Arsenal v Chelsea
7.15pm, 21 April (BT Sport 1)
Sunderland v Manchester City
7.15pm, 29 April (BT Sport 2/BTEX1)
Notts County v Liverpool
7.15pm, 2 May (BT Sport 1)
Birmingham City v Reading
7.15pm, 19 May (BT Sport EU/BTEX1)
Chelsea v Sunderland
7.15pm, 25 May (BT Sport 1)
Number of times the teams are shown live in that batch of games:
Chelsea 3
Arsenal 2
Manchester City 2
Sunderland 2
Doncaster 1
Reading 1
Birmingham 1
Notts County 1
Liverpool 1
It’s also not a surprise that the top four sides from last season have been picked the most in the first part of the season as BT know that they can rely on the “big” names to maximise their audience.
Luckily enough, BT Sport has not requested to move any games from their original times, something that happened many times last season with very short notice that often prevented some fans from attending the games.
