2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France



Games for Matchday 1 of the 2019 Women’s World Cup

If your summer of 2018 was taken over by the urge to watch the Men’s World Cup in Russia, there’s good news for you: this summer is the Women’s World Cup in France. The first match was France vs South Korea on June 7 with Match-day 1 pictured below. (Mark the dates!) Since France’s men’s team won in Russia, France women will be looking to bring the trophy home (or keep it in their country). After all, they do have the home team advantage. The USWNT (United States Women’s National Team) is the most successful team with three world cup titles to their name. They are often the competition favorites and hopefully that leads to an increased fan-base. Soccer is definitely a growing sport in the US and, with that, the women’s league. Let’s see if the students of WJ feel the same.
