Our free-to-watch broadcast was produced by and aired live on Yahoo Sports. This year’s Annual Salute was presented by espnW, Gatorade, NBC Sports Group and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Billie Jean King and the Women’s Sports Foundation will bring together girls, top athletes, coaches, sports influencers and celebrities for a one-night, broadcast event to inspire millions of youth, families and communities to embrace the power of sport and join the WSF’s movement towards equality.
We exist to unlock the possibilities in every girl and woman through the power of sport. For woman-kind and for human-kind, we believe that having an equal opportunity to play is the way we achieve our full potential
