The WSL launches today with the first game being shown live on ESPN from 5pm. Not only is this a massive stepping stone for women’s football it should aid the development of girls who play football too! If they are encouraged to watch the WSL of course! It is a must though, while obviously watching any football is good so they can see what to do (and at times, what not to do) in games. But now for the girls they can eventually watch women’s game easier with the TV coverage.
It is more important for them to watch the women’s games that it is the men’s games. Not that I am saying stop watching it, just watch all of it! But this will give them better role models in terms of what they can achieve from football.
Let’s hope that we see more games live on TV!
