TNT Sports agrees a deal with DAZN to broadcast coverage of the Women's Champions League and domestic women's football from across Europe.

TNT Sports has agreed a sublicensing deal with DAZN that will see women's European football broadcast across its channels in the UK and Ireland.

The agreement covers one game a week during the group stage of the Women's Champions League, plus the four quarter-finals, both semi-finals and the final in Bilbao in May.

Also covered under the deal is one game a week from each of the top female football divisions in Spain, Germany and France - including the women's el Clasico this Sunday.

"As a multi-sport broadcaster, it is our responsibility to reflect the diversity of our audiences and society," said Trojan Paillot, SVP of sports rights acquisition at TNT owner Warner Bros. Discovery.

"Our mission is to bring parity to live coverage of world-class sport irrespective of gender and we have made it our mission to illuminate the stories of female athletes all year-round.

"To enable this, we always look for opportunities to expand our women's sport portfolio to offer fans the greatest choice and we are therefore delighted to collaborate with DAZN to show UEFA Women's Champions League games in the UK and Ireland alongside some of the best matches from the top European leagues.

"We plan to support the burgeoning interest in women's football in this country and to serve fans with the coverage and content the players deserve to support the continued growth of the sport for all to enjoy."

TNT will also start broadcasting Premiership Women's Rugby from this season, with the first round of matches due to take place this weekend.
