Commercially, no chance in a million to ever become or remain independent. Dazn does not have money to throw at this but i expect j sports or others might take a risk on it.

The teams owners will have to put their hands in their pockets a bit more every year to cover the losses.

A semi pro league is the way to go for women football. Lets see if i was wrong in 3 years time

Yes, I agree that Dazn might not be the best place to show WE-League games. While the sport grows it needs its own dedicated (and free) platform, like the "FA Player" in the UK.

This is clearly NOT meant to be a $$$ making venture, sounds like companies will be footing the bills for player\employee salaries etc at likely hefty losses, but likely hope to get some exposure of various sorts I guess.

I mean Y40,000,000 per team will get eaten up WAY BEFORE any salaries could be paid, wont even cover venue use likely let alone travel etc

Why 11 teams? Not 10 or 12? That means one team will be idle every day?
