Paramount+ to Stream The Women’s Cup


Paramount+ is set to be the exclusive home to stream all four matches of The Women’s Cup, a four-team international soccer tournament that will be held in August.

The Women’s Cup features the NWSL’s Racing Louisville and Chicago Red Stars, Frauen-Bundesliga champion FC Bayern Munich and Division 1 Féminine champion Paris Saint-Germain.

The action kicks off on August 18, with FC Bayern facing PSG. Louisville and Chicago will meet in a contest that will also count in the NWSL’s regular-season standings. The winners of each of those matches will face off in the title game on August 21, preceded by the third-place game. All matches will be played at Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, Ky.

CBS Sports Digital will deliver additional coverage and original programming and feature highlights across social channels, CBSSports.com, the CBS Sports app and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news network. The Women’s Cup matches will re-air at a later time on CBS Sports Network.

“Paramount+ is committed to showcasing the world’s top clubs across both the men’s and women’s games, and these four clubs only further elevate the quality of our soccer programming,” said Jeffrey Gerttula, executive VP and general manager of CBS Sports Digital. “Paramount+ continues to be a year-round, must-have soccer destination for fans of the game, and we’re excited for The Women’s Cup to be a part of our growing lineup at CBS Sports.”
