When is the women’s soccer world cup ? The 2023 Women’s World Cup is near. It begins July 20 in Australia and New Zealand. And when it does, with 32 teams contesting 64 games, it will become the grandest women’s sporting event in modern history. It will be cold, and inconvenient for U.S. viewers because of the time difference; but it will be a spectacle and a new benchmark for gender equity in soccer.
Here’s everything you need to know about it.
When is the 2023 Women’s World Cup?
The 2023 Women’s World Cup begins July 20, with two openers, one each in New Zealand and Australia.
The tournament then lasts an entire month. The final is Aug. 20.
Where is the 2023 Women’s World Cup?
The World Cup’s 64 matches will be split between five Australian cities and four in New Zealand. The two Oceania countries, which are separated by 1,300 miles of Tasman Sea, will become the first co-hosts of the Women’s World Cup — and the first hosts in the Southern Hemisphere.
Ten stadiums will stage matches, with capacities ranging from roughly 14,000 in Perth to 70,000 at Sydney’s Olympic Stadium (now known as Stadium Australia), the site of the final.
The U.S. team — colloquially known as the USWNT — will play a majority of its games in Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand’s largest city and capital, respectively.
What time are games? And what’s the time difference?
The 2023 World Cup’s biggest inconvenience will be the time differences. Nine host cities are spread across four distinct time zones, which are anywhere between 12 and 16 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Time (and therefore up to 19 hours ahead of Pacific Time).
FIFA’s schedulers have helped mitigate the impact. The U.S. will play its first two games at 1 p.m. in New Zealand, which is 9 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. PT the night before. (Its first two knockout matches could also be in U.S. prime time.)
But East Coast diehards will have to become night owls. The USWNT’s third game is at 3 a.m. ET. Of the 64 total matches, 54 kick off between 12:30 a.m. and 7 a.m ET. Half of the elimination games start between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. ET.
West Coasters can work backward — a 19-hour difference equates to five hours minus a day — but even then, fandom will require body-clock adjustments. The World Cup final, for example, is at 6 a.m. ET, 3 a.m. PT.
Yahoo’s schedule will convert kickoff times to wherever in the world you may be, so keep that handy. And if you’re working off the official schedule, which lists local times, World Time Buddy is your friend.
How to watch the Women’s World Cup on TV and streaming
As has been the case since 2015, Fox has the English-language broadcast rights in the United States. Telemundo has the Spanish-language rights. Both, along with their affiliates, will show each of the 64 games live.
Their streaming platforms — the Fox Sports and Telemundo Deportes apps — will also carry every game live. Fox plans to put 29 of the 64 — including all of the quarterfinals, semifinals and final — on its flagship, over-the-air network, with the rest on Fox Sports 1. Its entire TV schedule is here.
Where can I watch FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023?
You can catch all 64 matches on either FOX or Fox Sports 1. If you do not have cable or prefer streaming, options include Sling or Fubo TV to watch the tournament.

World Rankings heading into Women’s World Cup 2023

Here’s the full list of the current World Power Rankings in Women’s Soccer.
What channel is the women’s World Cup on TV?
Fox Sports has the rights in English, and Telemundo — owned by Philadelphia-based Comcast — has them in Spanish. Fox is putting 29 games on its free-to-air broadcast network, including every U.S. game, and 35 on cable channel FS1.
Telemundo is putting 33 games on its free-to-air broadcast network and 31 on cable channel Universo. That’s the most women’s World Cup games ever put on a free-to-air channel.
Combining the two networks’ schedules, 22 games are exclusively on cable. You’ll find them in the full game listings below.
Who are Fox and Telemundo’s women’s World Cup broadcasters?
Fox’s top team is JP Dellacamera and former U.S. star player Aly Wagner. It’s the 17th World Cup for Dellacamera, the former Union local TV voice, seven on the women’s side and 10 on the men’s side. They’ll call all the U.S. games, and big games, through the final.
Fox has five broadcast teams that will call games, with three on site down under: Dellacamera and Wagner, Jacqui Oatley and Philadelphia’s Lori Lindsey, and John Strong and Kyndra de St. Aubin.
The other two teams will call games off monitors from the network’s Los Angeles studios: Sixers play-by-play voice Kate Scott and Danielle Slaton and Jenn Hildreth and Warren Barton.
Rob Stone hosts studio coverage from Sydney, Australia, with a cast of analysts led by Delran’s Carli Lloyd, fellow former U.S. star Heather O’Reilly, and former Philadelphia Independence and Canada goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc.
Telemundo’s top team is veteran play-by-play voice Andrés Cantor and analysts Natalia Astrain, a former U.S. Under-17 women’s team coach, and Manuel Sol. They are the network’s only team on site to call games.
Other play-by-play voices include Sammy Sadovnik, Copán Alvarez, Daniella Lopez-Guajardo, and Jorge Calvo.
Notable analysts include four current or former women’s players: Deyna Castellanos (Venezuela), Isabella Echeverri (Colombia), Janelly Farias (Mexico), and Kenti Robles (Mexico).
Telemundo doesn’t have a full-blown studio set down under, but has hosts and reporters spread across the tournament: Ana Jurka, Miguel Gurwitz, Veronica Rodríguez, Carlota Vizmanos, and Carlos Yustis.
Where is the women’s World Cup live streaming?
Fox’s live streaming is available through FoxSports.com with authentication through participating TV providers or through the streaming apps of those providers. Streaming TV sites that have FS1 include fuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and DirecTV Stream.
Full-game replays are available on Fox Sports’ website and app, which exists for mobile devices and connected-TV devices like Apple TV and Roku. There will be rebroadcasts of games at various hours on FS1, FS2, and Fox Soccer Plus.
Telemundo’s live streaming is in two places: TelemundoDeportes.com if you have a TV subscription, and on Peacock. You’ll have to pay for the premium tier to get all the games, but it’s definitely the cheapest streaming option to get every game.
Where is the World Cup radio broadcast?
There is no traditional radio broadcast in English. SiriusXM’s subscription service has audio simulcasts of Fox’s TV broadcasts. Most games are on Fox Sports’ Channel 83, with some simultaneous games on SiriusXM’s soccer channel 157. TuneIn also is simulcasting Fox’s audio on its paid subscription tier.
SiriusXM also will have a lot of studio shows on its soccer channel, led by hosts Jason Davis and Glenn Crooks.
