The NWSL Is Coming To Twitch

The NWSL have recently announced that International fans (like us) will be able to watch all the NWSL games for the upcoming season through the popular streaming site Twitch. 

Twitch is widely known for its video game streams with some big names using the app to play live games to a wider audience, it is easy to get hooked on watching once you get started. There is plenty of content on the site and the site is definitely trying to branch into different genres, they have had the NWHL (hockey) broadcast on the site so now it is the turn of the NWSL.

This is a brilliant move from the league as last season it was getting increasingly difficult to watch games if you were based internationally. In the UK BT Sport was the only place you could watch and that is if they wanted to add a game that week which wasn't always the case and us fans were missing out. At least now with Twitch, each game will be broadcast live and the games are also going to be archived, meaning access just got even easier. 

Say you can't stay up really late to watch the game due to commitments the next day at least all you have to do when you get the time is head to their Twitch channel & head to the archives to catch up on everything you missed. The league have also said there will be extra content added so you can keep up with the league a lot better than in the past.

So here is how to get started on the site so you can get access to all the NWSL goodness at no cost...

Step 1 : Nice and simple just head to where you will be shown a home screen a little like this. It will probably be showing one of their featured streamer but take no notice of that, unless it is something you may be interested in. 

Step 2 : On the right of the screen you will see a couple of buttons, you want to be heading over to the sign up one, don't worry this isn't going to cost you anything.

Step 3 : Once you have clicked that sign up button a box like the above will appear, all you need to do is pick a username & password, enter your date of birth (some things on the site can be age restricted) and enter your email it is as simple as that. You will need to enter a verification code once you have done this to move onto the next step but don't worry that comes through basically instant. 

Step 4 : Once you are all signed up head back to the top of the page and go to the search bar. Type in nwslofficial or just click the link which will take you direct to the NWSL channel.

Step 5 : Once you are on the channel simply hit follow in the top right, this will make sure you are following the account and it will show them on the left hand side of the page when you log in, so you can just click there and watch the videos. As you can see they already have a few videos on there to get you going ready for the start of the season.

You are going to want to make sure that next to the follow/unfollow button the little bell button is switch to notifications on, that way the app will let you know when they have gone live  or you will receive an email saying they are live so you never miss a game.

So signing up is literally as simple as that and doesn't cost a penny yet you get access to so much great football and get to see some of the worlds best playing week in week out. There is now even more reason for me to be glued to my PC. 

Whilst you are on the site why not give a couple of other streams a try? There are plenty of great streamers for FIFA, Pro Evolution & Football Manager on this platform so just type in the game and see who you come across... you wont be disappointed. I have come across random streamers in the past and ended up watching far too many streams so you never know what you will come across.

If you need anymore help with Twitch feel free to get in touch with us and we will try help you as much as we can. If possible we will hopefully be hosting some of the games on our channel & some other football related streams so don't forget to give us a follow too at
