On Thursday evening, the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) turned to Twitter to inform fans that for the next few weeks domestic fans will have full access to live streams via the league’s site, nwslsoccer.com and the league’s app.
In April, the NWSL announced a partnership with go90, which saw it as the exclusive streaming partner of the NWSL in the U.S. except for the NWSL Game of the Week on Lifetime.
Go90, a mobile streaming service was set to feature 98 NWSL games accessible via and on-demand streaming for the 2017 season. So far, there have been plenty of viewer issues with go90. On Sunday, the problems around go90 were quite clear when matches never even made it on the stream. According to Equalizer Soccer, the games were then put on the league’s website for American fans to watch.

There haven’t been any comments since the tweet on Thursday, nor an official announcement apart from a statement from NWSL Managing Director of Operations, Amanda Duffy.
