OL Reign vs. Washington Spirit: Livestream, how to watch, TV schedule, lineups

5 PM PT. CBS Sports Network. Watch with us.

NWSL: OL Reign at Washington Spirit Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Wednesday night marks the NWSL Challenge Cup semifinal for OL Reign. They’ll be facing the Washington Spirit at Audi Field, with kickoff at 5 PM PT. The match will air on CBS Sports Network, which means it will not be available on Paramount+. It will also stream on Twitch for international fans.

For any fans heading to the Sounders match, the club confirmed they will be airing the Reign game in the concourse area throughout the stadium (those hanging near concessions areas), but it won’t be on the big screens that you can see from your seats.

Because this is a semifinal, the clubs will go straight to penalty kicks after regulation.

If OL Reign win, they’ll be hosting the Challenge Cup final at Lumen Field on Saturday, with kickoff at 10 AM PT. Tickets will be offered at $15 for the entire stadium and will go on sale immediately after the semifinal concludes. If the Reign can win the Challenge Cup, each player will get $10,000 — there’s meaningful stuff on the line here.

If the Reign lose, they’ll be hosting their regular-season home opener on Sunday. Confusing, we know. Let’s just focus on winning.

After falling to the Spirit 2-1 over the weekend, OL Reign will be hungry to put in a stronger performance tonight. They’ll have the full complement of players available, with literally ZERO players on the injury list for the match. Yes, that means we could see Megan Rapinoe tonight.

What to Watch

  • Stay composed when Washington press
  • Shoot early
  • Limit the Spirit in transition
