Are you a PlayStation 5 gamer who loves football, or a football fan who loves gaming? If either option seems appealing, then the following news is sure to be considered a goal: Optus Sport is now available on PlayStation 5 in Australia.

That’s right, footy fans can now watch all the live and on-demand action from some of the best football leagues in the world, including the Premier League, the Women’s Super League, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League, and more, directly from Sony’s PlayStation 5. The launch of the service for Sony’s console joins the likes of the app already being available on Xbox, Apple (iPhone/iPad/Apple TV), Android, Amazon Fire TV and web browsers. To enjoy, all users need is an Optus Sport subscription and the Optus Sport app on the device of their choice.

The release of the PS5 version of the app has come at a great time given the new season of the Barclays Women’s Super League has just kicked off on 1 October 2023, featuring some of the most talented and exciting Matildas stars, such as Sam Kerr (Chelsea FC), Steph Catley (Arsenal), Mackenzie Arnold (West Ham United), Mary Fowler (Manchester City), and many more.

Howard Rees, Head of Optus Sport, said: “We are thrilled to launch Optus Sport on PlayStation 5, as we know how much our customers love watching their favourite football leagues on their gaming consoles. With the Women’s Super League in full swing, this is a great opportunity for fans to follow the amazing journeys of their Matildas heroes on PS5”.

In addition to soccer, Optus Sport is also home to other exclusive football content, such as OS Fitness, a series of workouts designed by professional footballers and coaches; Sport Skills, a series of tutorials teaching users how to master various football techniques; Rivalries, a series exploring some of the most intense and historic clashes between football teams; and From The Vault, a series showcasing some of the most memorable and classic matches from the past.
