Australian soccer fans will be able to watch Matildas' striker Sam Kerr in action for Chelsea in the Women's Super League this year.
In a new broadcast arrangement, BT Sport will show a minimum of 22 WSL matches with overseas deals made with Australia, Scandanavia and South America.
Among those 22 matches is the clash between Manchester United and Chelsea on Sunday (2330 AEST).
The matches will be shown by Optus in Australia who have been granted exclusive rights.
The WSL season kicks off on Saturday with newly promoted Aston Villa taking on Manchester City.
Kelly Simmons, the Football Association's director of the women's game, admits she was thrilled to be able to launch the season.
"(I'm) delighted to be launching the season this weekend, it's great to be back at last," Simmons said.
Chelsea were awarded the title from the 2019-20 season, which was brought to a premature halt in May amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, on a points-per-game basis.
They also won the Community Shield against Manchester City in a behind-closed-doors contest at Wembley.
All clubs will take a knee for Black Lives Matter and a minute's applause is set to precede each match on the opening weekend to recognise the work of the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic.
