Create equality within football!

If you are a big fan of sport, especially football, on the majority of free channels (e.g. BBC One, ITV, BBC Three, FIVE, EuroSports), there are broadcasts of Male Premier League, Male FA Cup, Male Champions League, Male Europa League and Male International Matches. See a pattern? Yes, all male! On British Sport TV, even premium channels (e.g. Sky Sports, BT Sports, ESPN) hardly broadcast Women's Super League and Women's Internationals. This is obviously shows inequality in a supposedly 'equal' sport. My petiton will make more than 70% of women season & international matches broadcasted on British Television. Thank you.

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

The following explanatory notes have been added:

this is one for the broadcasting companies to answer; the government cannot tell them what to do via legislation. However, it does encourage them to cover more women's sport generally.
