ITV to show inaugural Arnold Clark Cup featuring Lionesses

ITV will show full live coverage of new international women’s football tournament, the Arnold Clark Cup, featuring England Women, next month.

The round robin competition will also include Germany, Spain and Canada, taking place at stadiums across England, which hosts the event. 

ITV’s coverage will be presented by Laura Woods and featuring punditry from guests Ian Wright and Eni Aluko, with commentary from Seb Hutchinson and co-commentator Emma Hayes, as well as reporter Katie Shanahan.  The line-up will also include Hugh Woozencroft, Kelly Smith, Anita Asante and Siobhan Chamberlain.

Matches, including England v Germany, England v Spain and England v Canada, will be shown across ITV, ITV4 and the ITV Hub.

Laura Woods said: “The Arnold Clark Cup offers an exciting opportunity to see England take on top level opposition at a crucial stage in what is a huge year for them as they continue their World Cup qualification campaign, and be tested in a tournament as they build towards this summer’s Euros where they're the host nation.  I’m really looking forward to seeing them in action in front of home crowds in what promise to be tough matches.”
