The top six teams at the end of the regular season will advance to the NWSL Playoffs, with the top two seeds receiving a first-round bye. The 2022 NWSL Championship is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 29.
As part of the league’s balanced framework for 2022, a significantly smaller number of contests have been scheduled during FIFA windows, allowing for fewer conflicts for the league’s most accomplished players who compete with both club and country. Several Gotham FC players are expected to earn call-ups for international competition.
The 2022 regular season will air across The CBS Television Network and CBS Sports Network and stream live on Paramount+. Twitch, the home for all internationally streamed matches, will also stream select games in the United States. Television details for regular-season matches will be shared in the coming weeks.
