SuperSport Channels Broadcasting the Women’s World Cup
Just like we have it for every other tournament, there are dedicated SuperSport channels showing highlights and live games from the Women’s World Cup.
And because we do not have any major tournaments from Men’s football, there are a lot of SuperSport channels showing this year’s WWC.
SuperSport channels broadcasting Women’s World Cup games include SuperSport Grandstand, SuperSport Football, and SuperSport Variety 4.
Where to Watch Highlights of Games from the Women’s World Cup
We live in a busy world. And unless you’re a pundit sitting at one of the WWC studios for 30 days, keeping your eyes peeled for every live game, you will surely miss some games.
But the good news is that you can watch replays and highlights when you have the time.
For replays, you’ll need a DStv subscription. As a subscriber, you can simply check out the DStv guide on the DStv website.
It’s easier if you have the DStv app, select the “TV Guide” tab to see when you can watch replays and highlights of the games you missed.
You can also catch highlights on the Supersports website. Visit the dedicated WWC video portal to watch all the highlights from the Women’s world cup.
A Look Back at the Last Women’s World Cup
Let’s take a brief trip down memory lane to the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
The tournament was hosted by France and saw a record number of spectators who were captivated by the world-class display of women’s football.
This tournament featured 24 teams: from powerhouse nations to rising stars in women’s football, battling for the coveted title.
The USA, led by the indomitable Megan Rapinoe, swept through the tournament with a potent mix of tactical brilliance and raw talent.
Rapinoe, with her vibrant purple hair and dazzling smiles, became the face of the tournament, delivering match-winning performances and netting six goals, which earned her the Golden Boot and the Golden Ball.
The tournament was marked by some unforgettable games. One of the most notable was the USA’s 13-0 victory over Thailand, setting a record for the most significant winning margin in World Cup history.
Don’t cover your face. These things happen.
The quarter-final between USA and France termed ‘Le Grand Match’, was another standout game, with the USA emerging victorious in a tight 2-1 win against the hosts.
After a lot of tough and exciting games, it was finally time for the last game of the competition: the Women’s World Cup final.
The game was held at the Lyon Stadium, with the USA facing the Netherlands.
A penalty by Rapinoe and a strike from Rose Lavelle sealed a 2-0 victory for the USA, securing their fourth Women’s World Cup title.
The tournament wasn’t just about the winners, though. It was also a celebration of women’s football and its growth, with many teams showcasing their talent on the world stage.
This tournament was marked by its unpredictability. We witnessed traditional underdogs like Italy and Spain reaching the knockout stages and proving to the world that the gap in women’s football is closing.
2023 Women’s World Cup: Teams to Watch
Fast forward to July 2023, and we’re ready for another month of football madness.
Some of the teams that you should keep an eye on include the USA. United States are the defending champions with an array of talent like the phenomenal Alex Morgan.
Germany is another top team with a well-drilled squad and a desire to prove their worth against other heavyweights in the competition.
We also have France, home to some of the finest talents in women’s football. France hosted the previous edition of the WWC but couldn’t win it. You can tell they have a desire to do better than they did four years ago.
Other teams to look out for are Brazil, England, Sweden, Spain, and Japan. But this is football and to be fair, nearly every team playing the tournament will pose a threat to the opposition.
The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup promises to be a feast of football, and with DStv, you will miss nothing.
Whether you’re watching on your TV or via the DStv app, you’re set for an amazing football experience.
And for all the football-loving men who’ve never seen a Women’s world, I strongly suggest you get on this one.
See you on the virtual pitch!
