The UEFA Women’s Champions League final, NWSL regular season kickoff and Liga MX Femenil headline a week filled with women’s football action.

UEFA Women's Champions League final

English champions Chelsea will face Spanish champion Barcelona in the 2021 UEFA Champions League Final on Sunday, May 16. The game is set to kick off at 3 p.m. ET in Gothenburg.

Chelsea head coach Emma Hayes and the players hunt for the quadruple after winning three other competitions – FA WSL, Women's FA Cup, FA Women's League Cup – in 2021. A win on Sunday would also be the first time the Blues lift a Champions League title. Barcelona Femeni is also looking for their first-ever Champions League final win after a flawless league campaign, winning all 26 games.

The Women's Champions League final does not have a TV broadcaster in the USA as of Wednesday, May 12, but fans around the world can catch the action on YouTube or BarcaTV+.
