The showpiece final at Seaview on Friday, June 29 will be streamed live on the BBC Red Button across the UK, worldwide on the BBC Sport NI website and also available on the BBC Sport app.
It's the first domestic women's club game broadcast live by BBC Sport NI and Michael Clarke will be on commentary alongside former Northern Ireland Women's international Gail Redmond for the 8pm kick-off.
Jane Tohill, Executive Producer, BBC Sport NI said:
"Women's football has been going from strength to strength in Northern Ireland and it's great news to announce that we'll stream the League Cup Final live on BBC Sport NI between Linfield and Cliftonville. We've been covering women's football across our services but this is our first live women's club football match in Northern Ireland. We've enjoyed streaming the home games for the women's National team in their World Cup qualifiers live so we're looking forward to this game and hope the coverage will bring the local women's football to an even wider audience."
Andrew Johnston, Managing Director, NI Football League:
"We're delighted to work with BBC Sport NI to deliver the first domestic women's match broadcast in Northern Ireland with our League Cup final later this month. It has been a fantastic start to our Women's Premiership season to date and viewers can look forward to two of the top teams going head to head at Seaview so we would encourage as many fans to come out and support this landmark game."
