The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced a one-year agreement with FOX Sports to telecast three regular season games and all three playoff games. This is the second consecutive year FOX has agreed to televise NWSL games.

“We are very pleased to once again partner with FOX Sports, who continue to demonstrate their outstanding support of our league and women’s soccer,” NWSL Commissioner Jeff Plush said. “It is extremely important for the development of the league for our fans to have access to games on national television, especially our playoffs and championship match.”

FS1 will televise all three regular season matches, both NWSL semifinal matches and the championship game. All six games stream live on FOX Soccer 2Go, FOX Sports GO and FOXSportsGO.com.

The broadcast schedule will kick off on the heels of the 2016 Rio Olympics, as the league begins its push toward the playoffs.

Unfortunately for Sky Blue FC fans, none of their games are included in the regular season package.

Here is the full schedule:
