BWSL starts on Sunday!

Posted: Tuesday 13th April 2021 - 10:21 AM


The opening BWSL fixtures will be played behind closed doors and the Tigresses start the season with a derby against Featherstone Rovers.

Twitch will stream coverage of one BWSL fixture every weekend in 2021 – and as a bonus, will also cover the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup, starting with the preliminary round fixture on Sunday week (April 25) when Huddersfield will kick off their campaign against Warrington.

The other opening-round matches include Leeds Rhinos facing York City Knights, Bradford Bulls taking on St Helens. Warrington’s long-awaited debut fixture in the Betfred Women’s Super League – against their local rivals Wigan Warriors this Sunday at noon – has been selected as the first match to be shown live on Twitch in 2021.

The Wolves were promoted to the BWSL – with Huddersfield Giants – for 2020, only for the Covid pandemic to force the abandonment of the entire season.

Huddersfield are not involved in this weekend’s opening round of matches.

All matches covered live on Twitch will be repeated on Our League on Monday night from 8pm.
