The Matildas AFC Olympic Qualifiers campaign will be broadcast live on free to air for the first time with the Seven Network and the FFA confirming an agreement.

Broadcast on 7mate and streaming live on Plus7, the partnership will see all five of the Matildas matches accessible to the Australian public.

“This broadcast agreement with the Seven Network is a breakthrough moment for women’s football and due recognition to the deeds of the Matildas at last year’s World Cup,” said FFA CEO David Gallop.

“Over the last two years we have invested a significant amount of resources into women’s football, in particular the Matildas program, and following the on field success at the World Cup, this is a positive sign that we are making headway off the field.

“We thank for the Seven Network for their commitment and look forward to watching the Matildas battle for a place in the Olympic Games.”

Held in Osaka, Japan from 29 February - 9 March, the cut throat AFC Olympic Qualifiers will pit Australia up against 2015 Women's World Cup silver medallists Japan (29 February), Vietnam (2 March), Korea Republic (4 March), DPR Korea (7 March) and China (9 March).

The top two nations will then qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics held in August.

"Seven is proud to be bringing the next chapter of Matildas story to all Australians and we'll be doing that live on any screen," said Tim Worner, CEO of Seven West Media,

“Australians have embraced the idea of viewing live sport through apps, as the massive audience during the Australian Open has shown.”

The Matildas enter camp on Tuesday in preparation for the Olympic Qualifiers.
