England Lionesses World Cup Soccer Captain Millie Bright Leads Sportswomen Series ‘Sky Sports Editions’

Chelsea centre-back Millie Bright, who captained the England Lionesses to a historic soccer FIFA World Cup Final this summer, stars in the first episode of series “Sky Sports Editions.”

The show is a long-form YouTube series that is a blend of sport, fashion, lifestyle and culture, centered around the biggest stars of women’s sport.  

The opening episode, hosted by soccer reporter Emma Saunders, sees Bright examine how it felt to pull on the armband to lead her country, the impact of her family, her feeling of home at Chelsea and why playing for the Lionesses helps bring about change for the reputation of women.

Sky Sports F1 presenter Naomi Schiff is the lead host for the series, which also features unified three-belt boxing champion Natasha Jonas; England netball shooter and player of the tournament at the 2023 Netball World Cup Helen Housby; cricket’s world number one IT20 bowler Sophie Ecclestone; and racing driver and three-time W series champion Jamie Chadwick.

Sky Sports head of women’s sport, Jo Osborne, said: “Women’s sport is full of incredible athletes and personalities who entertain us on our screens every week. ’Sky Sports Editions’ aims to shine a light on some of these superstars and help them to show a side to themselves they don’t often get to share. And as women’s sport increasingly becomes part of mainstream culture, learning their stories through their style feels like the perfect way to do it.” 

“Sky Sports Editions” has been created in partnership with creative company The Midnight Club.

Partner at The Midnight Club and brand lead, ‘Editions,’ Kitty Pemberton-Platt, said: “Sky Sports is a pioneer in the visibility, perception and influence of women’s sport, it’s been our pleasure to co-create a strategy and concept which advances that agenda. ‘Sky Sports Editions’ is designed to go deeper, pulling out the energy and sentiment which makes women’s sport so special – powered by the raw character, humility and authenticity of the athletes themselves. It’s a platform we’re thrilled to support – together building an essential destination for the most original stories, from women at the very top of their game.”

The first episode of “Sky Sports Editions” will be available to watch on Sky Sports YouTube channels and Refinery29 from Sept. 29.
