Clare Balding will host Channel 4's new "Women's Football World" show.

The journalist and broadcaster is excited to be fronting the upcoming programme, which will feature the best of the action from the top women's leagues around the world, including England's WSL and highlights from France, Germany, USA, Italy and the women's UEFA Champions League.

Clare said: "I'm thrilled that Channel 4 is dedicating a football show solely to the women's game.

"Having more women's football on television can only help with awareness of the players, show the scope and quality of the game around the world, win over even more fans and inspire more young girls to become tomorrow's superstars."

Each week, Clare will join a professional footballer to get their expert analysis and opinion on the key talking points and issues of the week.
