Hockey fans are getting set to root for some of the best players from around the world in the new Professional Women's Hockey League. The PWHL is a culmination of years of professional hockey organizations putting the greatest players in one place, along with some new rules. The 2024 season has just kicked off and the hype has never been greater for women's hockey. The six inaugural teams in New York, Boston, Minnesota, Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto are ready to show up and show out for the home fans and fans all over North America.

Since this is the first season the league decided to start with only six teams in the biggest hockey markets in the United States and Canada. With this comes the issue of fans getting to these games. There is flexibility built into the schedules to allow for teams to play at NHL stadiums and road games in other markets. Still, many fans will be tuning in to watch at home. Finding broadcast partners has been a chore to get done before the puck drops and now they are set. Fans in both the U.S. and Canada will have an opportunity to watch games on the TV and online.
