Although better access to WNBL games was not one of our WNBA-related wishes for 2024, the league has delivered.

The final three months of WNBL action—more than 50 games—will be available to stream for free through the WNBA App. Announced in celebration of World Basketball Day, this is the first time the WNBA will share WNBL games and content.

To catch up on what’s been happening Down Under, check out Noa Dalzell’s WNBL updates. The Atlanta Dream’s Aari McDonald and Los Angeles Sparks’ Jordin Canada having been balling for the Perth Lynx and Melbourne Boomers, respectively.

On the partnership, WNBA Chief Growth Officer Colie Edison said:

At a time when accessibility is a key factor in driving the growth of women’s sports, adding WNBL games and additional content provides a new and exciting way to deepen fan engagement on the WNBA app. With a number of current WNBA players starring in the WNBL this season, this aligns with our long-term goal of providing year-round, direct-to-consumer content to fans worldwide.

Christy Collier-Hill, Head of the WNBL, added:

Given the number of WNBA athletes who participate in the WNBL, both past and present, this is an opportunity for WNBA fans around the world to follow and engage with those athletes, their teams and the league. As the WNBL continues to grow both domestically and internationally, this is a milestone moment for the league that will further enhance visibility and growth.

The WNBL regular season continues through Feb. 24, 2024, with two best-of-three semifinals and a best-of-three finals to follow. The finals are scheduled to begin March 10. All postseason games also will be available through the WNBA App.
