BBC Alba has put its weight behind Scotland’s women footballers and the show starts this evening.

The first of the final warm-ups sees Scotland face Chile at the Pinatar Arena in Murcia, Spain, live on BBC Alba at 6pm.

BBC Alba will also show Scotland as they face 2007 World Cup finalists Brazil on Monday at 7pm, again live from the Pinatar Arena.

Scotland’s final friendly, also live on BBC Alba, is at Hampden on Tuesday May 28 where they will be hoping for a record attendance and a proper send-off.

Scotland’s group contains England, Argentina and 2011 World Cup winners, Japan. Scotland’s first game will be against the Auld Enemy on June 9.

All of Scotland’s group games will be broadcast live on the home of Women’s Sport in Scotland, BBC Alba.

Scotland midfielder Leanne Crighton said: ‘It is great for us and the team.

‘It’s not just about this tournament, but the support BBC Alba has given us in previous qualifiers.

‘We know that friends, family and supporters cannot always be at the game, so to have that access to be able to watch and follow the journey with us certainly means a lot to us.’
