Paramount+ adds The Women’s Cup

Paramount+ continues to expand its offering to soccer fans by acquiring the rights to the inaugural Women’s Cup.

This August, Paramount+ will be the exclusive home to stream all four matches of The Women’s Cup, the four-team international soccer tournament that features the NWSL’s Racing Louisville and Chicago Red Stars, Frauen-Bundesliga champion FC Bayern Munich and Division 1 Féminine champion Paris Saint-Germain.

The action kicks off on Wednesday, August 18 at 5:00 PM, ET with FC Bayern facing PSG in a matchup between two of Europe’s top clubs that were both UEFA Women’s Champions League semifinalists. At 7:30 PM, ET, Louisville and Chicago will meet in a contest that will also count in the NWSL’s regular-season standings. The winners of each of those matches will face off in the title game at 6:00 PM, ET on Saturday, August 21, preceded by the third-place game at 3:00 PM, ET. All matches will be played at Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky.

“Paramount+ is committed to showcasing the world’s top clubs across both the men’s and women’s games, and these four clubs only further elevate the quality of our soccer programming,” said Jeffrey Gerttula, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Sports Digital. “Paramount+ continues to be a year-round, must-have soccer destination for fans of the game and we’re excited for The Women’s Cup to be a part of our growing lineup at CBS Sports.”

    This is great. I hope that these games have the star players in them. It tends to be that the USA players are picking and choosing what games to play in.

    This will also hopefully give the opportunity for the European women to play high level competition and maybe make the womens world cup a more level playing field if you will. I’d love to see more countries get to the level our women are at.
