CWHL Teams Up With Sportsnet to Put Female Game in Spotlight
The CWHL has scored a deal with Sportsnet that will see the Canadian multiplatform sports media company broadcast play-off games and special events for the next four seasons, marking a significant step forward in coverage of women’s sports.
The Canadian Women’s Hockey League and Sportsnet announced Tuesday that three games will air during the annual Clarkson Cup championship tournament next March, including the final game for league bragging rights, as well as at least one special event to be announced in early October.
For the first time this season, giving the best women’s hockey league in the world the national and international exposure it deserves, just one of many steps the CWHL is taking in paving the way for women’s sport to be seen and enjoyed by wider audiences.
