CBC/Radio-Canada and Rogers separately announced partnerships with the Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) to broadcast and stream the League’s inaugural season, which consists of six teams from Canada and the U.S.

This collaboration aims to enhance the visibility of women’s sports in Canada. The first-ever PWHL game is scheduled for New Year’s Day, January 1, at 12 p.m. ET on CBC and 12:30 p.m. ET on ICI TÉLÉ and ICI TOU.TV, featuring Toronto against New York at the Mattamy Athletic Centre.

The live broadcast will be available in English on CBC Gem, cbcsports.ca, and the CBC Sports app. CBC and Radio-Canada will continue to cover the PWHL season across their platforms.

“The PWHL’s inaugural season is a momentous occasion in women’s sport that will no doubt inspire future generations of hockey fans and players to come,” said Chris Wilson, Executive Director, Sports & Olympics, CBC, in an issued statement. “CBC Sports is committed to providing equal coverage of women’s sport across all platforms and is proud to provide a national stage for the PWHL, helping to further grow audiences for women’s hockey in Canada and celebrate the incredible talent in this country and around the world.”

The broadcast team for the first PWHL game includes host Andi Petrillo, analysts Hailey Salvian, Saroya Tinker, Tessa Bonhomme, commentators Daniella Ponticelli and Cheryl Pounder, and rinkside reporter Anastasia Bucsis. CBC will broadcast 17 PWHL games throughout the season, primarily on Saturdays.

Coinciding with the PWHL season’s start, CBC Sports will launch ‘Hockey North’, a digital series focusing on women’s hockey, hosted by Rob Pizzo.
