Women's FA Cup Final to be screened live on BBC Two
The Women’s FA Cup Final will be shown live on BBC Two on Sunday 26 May.
Birmingham City beat Chelsea in a dramatic penalty shoot-out last year to win the first major trophy in their 44-year history.
They will begin their title defence when the Super League teams join the competition in the fifth round proper, which starts on Sunday, 17 March.
The fixture comes before the European Women’s Championship, which will be live across the BBC in July.
Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, said: “We’re very pleased to renew our association with the Women’s FA Cup Final and offer live coverage of this key fixture to viewers.
“The Olympics provided a great showcase for the sport and demonstrated that there is a strong audience appetite to watch the top women’s teams in action.
“So we’re looking forward to bringing more women’s football to audiences on the BBC across TV, radio and online this year.”
