The highly anticipated match will only be shown to Australian residents with access to Foxtel, Kayo Sports and the My Football Live App. 

The news came on Friday afternoon when a media release from FFA with the details for both semifinals was sent out and didn't include SBS Viceland as a channel to cover Roar and Sydney. 

The Women's Game contacted SBS to comment but later in the day SBS: The World Game released information on their Twitter about the decision.

Instead of a W-League semifinal, the pre-scheduled program being shown in the slot is Free Money: The Case For Basic Income and Ultimate Airport Dubai.

Obviously, fans were upset with the decision especially when the W-League draw, which was announced in September last year, saw FFA’s Head of A-League & W-League Greg O’Rourke say:

“It’s also fantastic to welcome back SBS for another season of the Westfield W-League on free-to-air TV, with 15 matches as well as the Finals Series."

However, if you are an international fan you can still watch the match via ESPN+ (USA), BT Sports 2 (UK), BT Sport Live (Ireland), SkySports Pop-Up (New Zealand) and countries not covered by right can watch it on YouTube via the official My Football Channel.
