BBC ALBA has agreed the broadcast of all of the Scotland Women’s National Team’s upcoming warm-up friendlies ahead of their first ever appearance at the Women’s World Cup, held this summer in France.

The first of the final warm-ups sees Scotland face Chile at the Pinatar Arena in Murcia, Spain, live on BBC ALBA at 6pm on Friday 5th April.

BBC ALBA will also show Scotland as they face 2007 World Cup finalists Brazil on Monday 8th April at 7pm, again live from the Pinatar Arena in Murcia, Spain.

Scotland’s final friendly, also live on BBC ALBA, will take place at Hampden on Tuesday 28th May where they will be hoping for a record attendance for a proper send-off.

Scotland’s group contains England, Argentina and 2011 World Cup winners, Japan. Scotland’s first game will be versus England on June 9th.

All of Scotland’s group games will be broadcast live on the home of Women’s Sport in Scotland, BBC ALBA.

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at MG ALBA, which operates BBC ALBA in partnership with the BBC, said:

“BBC ALBA has been on this journey with the women’s national squad for ten years, and we are enormously excited to be showcasing the three friendlies as they build up to participation in this competition, as well as to be broadcasting the group stage games. We’re so proud to be able to support them as they make history.”

Scotland midfielder Leanne Crighton said:

"It is great for us and the team. It's not just about this tournament, but the support BBC ALBA has given us in previous qualifiers. We know that friends, family and supporters cannot always be at the game, so to have that access to be able to watch and follow the journey with us certainly means a lot to us."

Tha BBC ALBA air aonta a ruighinn a bhith a’ craoladh gach geama deasachaidh aig Sgioba Nàiseanta nam Ban mus tèid iad airson a’ chiad turas a-riamh gu Cupa na Cruinne san Fhraing.

Sa chiad gheama deasachaidh, chithear Alba an aghaidh Sile aig ionad-cluiche Pinatar ann am Murcia sa Spàinn, beò air BBC ALBA aig 6f air Dihaoine 5 Giblean.

Bidh BBC ALBA cuideachd a’ sealltainn Alba an aghaidh Brasil air Diluain 8 Giblean aig 7f, beò bho ionad-cluiche Pinatar.

Bidh an geama càirdeil mu dheireadh aig Alba, cuideachd beò air BBC ALBA, aig Hampden Dimàirt 28 Cèitean, le dòchas gum bi grunnan mhath luchd-leantainn ann airson soraidh slàn a chuir orra.

Sna priomh gheamannan, bidh Alba an aghaidh Sasainn, Argentina agus Iapan. Bidh Alba a’ cluich Sasainn sa chiad gheama aca air 9 Ògmhios.

Bidh gach geama aig Alba sa phrìomh chuairt aig Cupa na Cruinne beò air BBC ALBA – dachaigh spòrs nam ban ann an Alba.

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Ro-innleachd is Co-bhanntachd MG ALBA, a tha a’ ruith BBC ALBA ann an co-bhanntachd leis a’ BhBC:

“Tha BBC ALBA air a bhith air an turas seo le sgioba nàiseanta nam ban airson deich bliadhna agus tha sinn cho toilichte a bhith a’ sealltainn nan trì geamannan deasachaidh, ’s iad a’ deisealachadh airson na co-fharpais, a thuilleadh air a bhith a’ craoladh nam prìomh gheamannan. Tha sinn air ar dòigh glan a bhith gan taiceachadh aig an àm eachdraidheil seo dhaibh.”

Thuirt cluicheadair meadhan na pàirce airson Alba Leanne Crighton:

"The e cho math dhuinne agus airson an sgioba. Chan ann a-mhàin mun tùrnamant seo a tha e ach an taic a tha BBC ALBA air a thoirt dhuinn sna cuairtean deuchainn cuideachd. Tha fios againn nach eil e comasach do charaidean, teaghlach agus luchd-leantainn a bhith aig gach geama agus mar sin tha e cho cudromach dhuinne gu bheil an comas aig daoine a thighinn air an turas còmhla rinn."
