So You’ve Become A Rabid Fan Of Women’s Soccer. Now What?

FIFA already had promised to invest $1 billion in women’s soccer over the next few years, and he said these plans are unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2019 Women’s World Cup in France attracted 1.12 billion TV viewers worldwide and more than 260 million spectators, he said.

«This was a lot more than the Super Bowl franchise, for example,» he said.

The next FIFA Women’s World Cup is scheduled for 2023 and will include 32 teams, eight more than in 2019.
