The Australia vs Canada friendly match featuring the Matildas will be streamed live and exclusively on Paramount+. At this stage it does not seem that there will be a free-to-air option to watch the game, meaning a Paramount+ subscription will be necessary to tune in. This caused a lot of uproar with the recent Socceroos matches so we’ll have to wait and see if a free TV option is added closer to the time.

If you’re planning to tune in to watch the Matildas’ Olympic journey live at home, you’ll be able to do so on Channel 9, 9Now and Stan Sport.
