Women’s Football: Manchester United vs Manchester City will be shown live on the BBC this month

Manchester United v Manchester City - FA Women's Continental League Cup

The BBC have announced plans to broadcast at least one game from every remaining FA Cup round this season, starting with the Manchester derby on 25th January.

After reaching an agreement with the FA, the BBC has landed the rights to show the fourth round, fifth round, quarter-finals, both semi-finals and the final. 

Manchester City is the defending champions of the competition after beating West Ham United 3-0 at Wembley last May.

The Hammers face a tough trip of their own, as they host Arsenal at Rush Green Stadium, whilst other enticing fixtures include Charlton Athletic hosting Chelsea and Birmingham City heading to Sheffield United.

Liverpool will play their match against Blackburn Rovers at Bamber Bridge after the tie was switched from Tranmere Rovers FC to allow the pitch to recover following torrential rain recently.

As of March, every England Women’s game from the SheBelievesCup will also be available to watch on one of the BBC channels and on iPlayer.

England won the tournament last year, after comprehensively beating Japan and Brazil and drawing with the USA.

This year they will to the United States to face them and Japan again, whilst also taking on Spain to defend their crown.

This makes the BBC the only broadcaster to be showing both the Women’s European Championships next year and team GB’s exploits at the Olympics in Tokyo this summer.

They will also continue to stream at least one live Women’s Super League match from every round on the BBC website and iPlayer.
