Plus, a slight peak behind the curtain of how we’re going to cover the event.

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Paris with the opening match between France and South Korea. We here at Bavarian Football Works wanted to take this opportunity to pull back the curtain a little bit to give you an idea of what you can expect coverage-wise of the World Cup.


Our Coverage

Our plan for the group stage is pretty simple. Each day, we’ll have a gamethread for any and all discussion about the games. For Germany matches, you’re going to get the traditional BFW treatment of observations following an international match. There will also be daily coverage in, you guessed it, the Daily Schmankerl.

Once the group stage is completed, we’re going to reevaluate where we stand and see where we go from there.

Also! If you see something that you want to write about during the World Cup (or, about anything else), be sure to head to our FanPosts section.


Recommended Reading

There’s some great coverage from around the Network and elsewhere at the moment, and I want to be sure to recommend some of them to you now. We’ll work to bring those articles over to BFW throughout the tournament, so that you get some of the top content about the Women’s World Cup.

Here are some places to start: All For XI, SB Nation, Stars and Stripes FC, Black and Red United, Sounder at Heart, and Unusual Efforts.


How can you watch these games?

Let’s go ahead and get the answer to this question out of the way. In many countries, every single game (or almost every single game) can be found either on TV or through a streaming service. The fastest way to find out where you can watch these games is, as always, Live Soccer TV.

You’ll have to find other ways of watching on your own.

Group A: France, South Korea, Norway, Nigeria

Group B: Germany, China, Spain, South Africa

Group C: Australia, Italy, Brazil, Jamaica
