Sky Sports and the Women’s Sport Trust will join forces with the ECB on Saturday for a #ShowUp special featuring England Women in a T20 double-header, against South Africa and New Zealand.
The #ShowUp campaign – launched to encourage more people to watch, attend and play women’s sport – will take over the Sky Sports Cricket channel for a day of dedicated women’s programming.
1:07 Sky Sports Cricket's Isa Guha says the #ShowUp campaign is a great way of getting people engaged with women's sport
Former internationals Isa Guha, Mel Jones and Ebony Rainford-Brent will be part of the commentary team as England Women contest two T20s in the space of eight hours – with former British javelin thrower and #ShowUp ambassador, Goldie Sayers making a special guest appearance in the pod.
As part of the campaign, Sky is asking famous faces, fans and the general public to pledge their support using #ShowUp across social media to document their experiences of women in sport and will be giving out #ShowUp merchandise at the ground to fans.
Bryan Henderson, Head of Sky Sports Cricket, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for everybody to show their support for England Women – and women’s sport in general – by watching the matches at Taunton or on television, and using the hashtag #ShowUp on social media.
7:05 Olympic gold medallists Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh joined Isa Guha and Charlotte Edwards to discuss #ShowUp
“At Sky Sports, we remain proud of the contribution we’ve made to growing women’s sport, and we’re committed to women’s cricket going forward.”
