BBC ALBA launches strongest ever schedule of women’s sport

Spòrs nam Ban

As the home of Scottish women’s sport, BBC ALBA’s schedule will include a broad selection of live sport including international, European club and domestic football, international rugby and domestic shinty and curling.

To mark this announcement, four of the biggest names in Scottish women’s sport - curling’s Eve Muirhead, football’s Nicola Docherty, rugby’s Rachel McLachlan and shinty’s Kirsty Deans – met at Scotland’s iconic Forth Rail Bridge to highlight the strength of BBC ALBA’s commitment and the collective potential to transform the profile of women’s sport.

The channel’s announcement follows a fabulous year of coverage of women’s sport, including the Women’s Six Nations, and landmark coverage of Scotland in the FIFA Women’s World Cup – the culmination of a journey BBC ALBA has shared with Scottish women’s football over the past decade.

The latest action kicks off on Friday 30th August with Scotland v Cyprus in the qualifiers for Euro 2021 – the team’s first competitive fixture since the World Cup. At European club level, Hibs Ladies’ and Glasgow City’s UEFA Womens Champions League home fixtures will be screened, with Hibs facing Slavia Prague live on BBC ALBA on 11th September at Easter Road, and Glasgow City’s home leg against Russian side Chertanovo a fortnight later.

Coverage of the women’s domestic league continues in September with Forfar vs Motherwell on 20th September, with BBC ALBA continuing its coverage of the SWPL Cup and the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup Final.

In rugby, BBC ALBA will continue its coverage of the Women’s Six Nations, broadcasting all of Scotland’s home fixtures. Discussions are also underway to look into covering key domestic fixtures as well.

Coverage of shinty will feature the Valerie Fraser Camanachd Cup final on BBC ALBA on Saturday 7th September as Badenoch Ladies defend their title from Skye Ladies challenge. Curling is planned for early in 2020, with 10 teams competing across 4 days at the Perth Ladies International event in the beginning of January.

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at MG ALBA, which operates BBC ALBA in partnership with the BBC, said: “As the home of Scottish women’s sport, BBC ALBA offers a platform that raises awareness and exposure not only to the individual sports but also to the Gaelic language. We’re privileged to be a broadcast partner in women’s football, rugby, shinty and curling - and we’re committed to working as hard as we can with all of our partners to raise the profile of the games, encourage participation and attendance, as well as growing our TV audience and through that, opening the door to Gaelic.”

Clàr-spòrs nam ban – BBC ALBA a’ foillseachadh clàr ùr, làidir

Spòrs nam Ban

Mar dhachaigh spòrs nam ban Albannach, bidh clàr BBC ALBA a’ gabhail a-steach raon farsaing de spòrs beò, nam measg ball-coise Albannach, Eòrpach agus eadar-nàiseanta, rugbaidh eadar-nàiseanta, iomain agus croladh.

Gus seo fhoillseachadh, thàinig ceathrar bhana-spòrs Albannach – na cluicheadairean crolaidh Eve Muirhead, ball-coise Nicola Docherty, rugbaidh Rachel McLachlan agus iomain Kirsty Deans - còmhla aig Drochaid-rèile Fhoirthe gus dealas agus taic BBC ALBA - agus an cothrom iongantach seo airson spòrs nam ban a leasachadh còmhla - a chomharrachadh.

Tha an naidheachd seo a’ leantainn bliadhna air leth soirbheachail airson na seanail a thaobh spòrs nam ban. Am measg nan soirbheasan bha Sia Nàiseanan nam Ban agus Cupa Cruinne nam Ban aig FIFA – a bha na cheann-uidhe mhìorbhaileach air an turas a ghabh ball-coise nam ban Albannach thairis air an deich bliadhna mu dheireadh agus BBC ALBA nan cois.

Tha an ath cheum a’ tòiseachadh Dihaoine 30 Lùnastal le Alba v Cìopras ann an cuairt ro-fharpaiseach Euro 2021 – a’ chiad gheama aig Alba an dèidh Cupa na Cruinne. Aig ìre Eòrpach, tha Hibs agus Glasgow City gu bhith beò bho cho-fharpais an Champions League UEFA, le Hibs an aghaidh Slavia Prague air BBC ALBA air 11 Sultain aig Easter Road agus Glasgow City aig an taigh an aghaidh sgioba Ruiseanach Chertanovo cola-deug an dèidh sin.

Bidh craolaidhean bhon lìog Albannach a’ tilleadh san t-Sultain le Forfar v Motherwell air 20 Sultain, agus bidh BBC ALBA a’ leantainn le bhith a’ craoladh bho Chupa SWPL agus cuairt dheireannach Cupa Albannach nam Ban SSE.

Ann an rugbaidh, bidh BBC ALBA cuideachd a’ toirt Sia Nàiseanan nam Ban chun luchd-amhairc, a’ craoladh gach geama dachaigh aig Alba. Tha còmhraidhean fhathast a’ dol mu gheamannan a bharrachd taobh a-staigh Alba.

Bidh cuairt dheireannach Cupa Camanachd Valerie Fraser air Disathairne 7 Sultain le sgioba Bhàideanach a’ feuchainn air a’ chupa a ghlèidheadh a-rithist bhon Eilean Sgitheanach. Agus tha planaichean ann airson croladh a shealltainn tràth ann an 2020, le deich sgiobannan an sàs ann am Farpais Eadar-Nàiseanta Pheairt thairis air ceithir là aig toiseach an Fhaoillich.

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: “Mar dhachaigh spòrs nam ban Albannach, tha BBC ALBA a’ tabhann ùrlar gus mothachadh dhaoine a thogail chan ann a-mhàin do spòrs ach cuideachd don Ghàidhlig. Tha sinne pròiseil gu bheil sinn nar craoladairean de bhall-coise, rugbaidh, iomain agus croladh nam ban agus tha sinn dealasach ann a bhith ag obair cho cruaidh ’s a ghabhas còmhla ri ar com-pàirtichean gus inbhe gach spòrs a leasachadh, daoine a bhrosnachadh gus gabhail pàirt agus àireamhan luchd-leantainn àrdachadh fhad ’s a tha sinn cuideachd a’ toirt fàs air luchd-coimhid TBh agus leis an sin, a’ fosgladh doras chun na Gàidhlig.”
