Pien Meulensteen

Former England international Izzy Christiansen and commentator Pien Meulensteen will join Sky Sports for the 2023/24 Women’s Super League season.

Sky Sports’ season kicks off on Sunday 1st October at 5.30pm, with Champions Chelsea hosting London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.

Izzy announced her retirement at the end of last season after a successful 14-year career with Everton, Birmingham City, Manchester City and Lyon, as well as on the international stage with England.

Pien has a wealth of experience as a commentator, reporter and presenter and made history last season as the first lead female Sky Sports commentator for a Premier League match. She has also commentated on World Cup games.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Sky Sports and working on their unrivalled coverage across men’s and women’s football and that was key in my decision to join, Izzy said.

“The 2023/24 WSL season will be fascinating coming off the back of one of the tightest title races for many years and a World Cup.”

Pien added: “I’m privileged and excited to continue working with the incredible team of broadcasters at Sky Sports and to bring the best coverage for an exciting season ahead, in both the men’s and women’s game.”

All 35 Sky WSL games next season will continue to be shown live on Sky Showcase, available in all Sky homes, even without a Sky Sports package.
