With the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League season right around the corner, NSCAATV announced Thursday that it will host and feature select NWSL regular season games throughout the upcoming season. NSCAATV will highlight matches not aired by the league’s or individual team’s broadcast partners.

“The NSCAA’s goal is to always support and promote the game of soccer and working with the NWSL is one way to accomplish that goal,” NSCAA CEO Joe Cummings said. “We are looking forward to helping NWSL and its teams further develop in its second season.”

The NWSL announced its schedule in early February, as eight of the nine clubs will be in action opening weekend, beginning on Saturday, April 12. The league’s expansion team, the Houston Dash, has a tough inaugural game hosting defending champion, Portland Thorns FC.

On Sunday, Apr. 13, the NWSL Shield winner, the Western New York Flash, will travel to face the Washington Spirit.

“The offseason has been very productive for the NWSL, with the addition of the Houston Dash, as well as the growing popularity of our teams, coaches, and players,” NWSL Executive Director Cheryl Bailey said. “Now, expanding our reach through the NSCAATV platform is adding to that momentum heading into the 2014 season.”

NSCAATV launched in July 2013 as the online media property of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. The online channel has continued to develop into a “go-to” source for original programming, live streams and other written content highlighting the game.

The NSCAA recently announced a similar agreement with the United Soccer Leagues to broadcast the 2014 USL PRO season. Also adding to the broadcast lineup are several spring high school games.
