(CBS Local) – The Women's National Football League returns to the field this Saturday, September 5, to kick off their Fall Series schedule. The league has split its nine teams into three regional pods that allow teams to restrict travel while playing in home stadiums. 18 games are played over the course of the seven-week schedule.
The action starts on Saturday on CBS and CBS All Access when Sky Blue FC takes on Washington Spirit at Segra Field from 1pm. EST / PST. CBS will offer one game of the week each week throughout September before CBS Sports Network takes over the first two weeks of October. The final weekend of the season will then return to CBS and CBS All Access.
More NWSL coverage:
Play-by-play announcer Jenn Hildreth and analyst Lori Lindsay will handle all CBS and CBS Sports Network Game of the Week programs. Play-by-play announcer Mike Watts will join Lindsay for the exclusive CBS All Access games. Marisa Pilla will handle the side coverage with interviews before, at halftime and after the game.
