WUSA to Gain Canadian Coverage


The Women's United Soccer Association, the cable-centric women's
professional-soccer league, is expected to finalize a deal with Canadian women's
sports channel WTSN.

Sources said the parties are nearing a one-year agreement, which could be
announced as soon as this week, that calls for WTSN -- a division of Canadian
cable sports channel TSN -- to air 25 games live.

WTSN will also gain the rights to encore the matches -- including the season
opener and playoff action -- up to three times, sources said.

The WUSA declined to comment, and WTSN could not be reached at press
