Northern Ireland's UEFA Women's Euro 2022 play-off matches are to be broadcast by BBC Sport NI.
BBC NI will broadcast both games of Northern Ireland's play-off against Ukraine as Kenny Shiels' side aim to make history and qualify for a major tournament for the first time.
The first game, at Kolos Stadium, Kovalivka, kicks off at 5pm on Friday 9th April and will be shown live on BBC iPlayer, the BBC Sport NI website and via the Red Button.
Four days later, on Tuesday 13th April, Northern Ireland will face Ukraine again in the return leg at Seaview, Belfast. Coverage starts at 7.30pm with the match live on BBC Two NI, BBC iPlayer and via the Red Button.
It will be the first time that a Northern Ireland women's football international has been shown live on BBC NI television. Previous matches have been broadcast via the Red Button, including the qualifiers against Belarus and the Faroe Islands which saw Northern Ireland book their place in the play-offs.
Thomas Kane and former Northern Ireland international, Gail Redmond, will commentate on both matches. Stephen Watson will present the live TV game from Seaview with ex-Northern Ireland defender, Stephen Craigan, with former Scotland international manager Shelley Kerr providing analysis.
BBC Sport NI presenter, Nicola McCarthy, who also represented Northern Ireland at football, will report on the second leg of the play-off from pitchside.
Northern Ireland finished as runners-up in Qualifying Group C behind Norway to reach a play-off for a major tournament for the first time in their history. They pipped Wales into second place on head to head results in their two meetings.
The winner of the play-off will secure a place at the UEFA Euro 2022 Finals, to be held in England.
