“This year’s Westfield W-League is packed full of young, Australian talent as the players battle for places in the Westfield Matildas squad ahead of the rescheduled Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo and the AFC U20 Women’s Asian Cup.
“The world is watching women’s football in Australia, and we know how much fans want to be a part of the action too. Every game will be available online, and on Thursday and Sundays Westfield W-League fans can watch the games live on FOX SPORTS and ABC TV.”
Brisbane Roar FC forward Emily Gielnik, said:
“This season is a massive opportunity for young players coming through to show exactly what they’re made of, especially in the run up to the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. I’ve returned to play in the Westfield W-League this season, considering the timing of everything, I feel it’s the best decision forward for me at this current stage.”
