Available to Virgin TV customers directly via their set-top-box, DAZN’s FAST channel offers the opportunity to enjoy live football coverage of the UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL), which features a number of Lioness players such as Chelsea stars and Bayern’s Georgia Stanway, as well as behind the scenes access and exciting archive footage. 

With appetite for women’s football continuing to soar and peak audiences for key matches such as the England vs Spain Women’s World Cup final in 2023 reaching heights of 14.8m, Virgin Media is committed to catering for this growing demand while keeping up with customers’ evolving viewing habits by partnering with best-in-class broadcasters such as DAZN. 

David Bouchier, Chief TV and Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media O2, said: “The introduction of DAZN’s FAST channel on Virgin TV demonstrates our commitment to enhance our entertainment offering and champion women’s sport – of which we’re proud to be the first Pay TV provider in the UK to offer a FAST channel dedicated to women’s football. 

“From comedy to sport and everything in between, now more than ever there’s something for everyone on Virgin TV.”

Virgin Media O2 will continue to evolve its FAST channel offering, adding more fantastic channels that will provide customers with even greater choice, at no extra cost.
