2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup TV schedule and preview

The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team stars will have redemption on their minds when they take the pitch for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup this month. In the final match in Germany in 2011, the USWNT blew a late lead against Japan and settled for a 2-2 draw at the end of extra time. Then underdog Japan won a penalty shootout 3-1 to claim its first Women’s World Cup title.

The USWNT won’t have to travel far in their 2015 World Cup quest, with games taking place in Canada at venues in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Moncton, N.B. The tournament kicks off June 6 at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton as host Canada takes on China. The USWNT drew this tournament’s “Group of Death,” and will face Group D opponents Australia on June 8 (Winnipeg), Sweden on June 12 (Winnipeg) and Nigeria on June 16 (Vancouver). Stiff competition would await the USWNT in the knockout stages with Germany, France, Japan, England, Brazil and Canada among the other top teams.

This edition of the Women’s World Cup is expanded from 16 teams to 24, and from 32 matches to 52. It’s also, controversially, the first World Cup played on artificial turf.

This is the first FIFA World Cup under the organization’s new broadcast agreement with FOX Sports, which includes live coverage of every tournament game. FOX Sports 1 airs 30 games, with six on FOX Sports 2. The FOX broadcast network will air 16 matches, including one semifinal match, and the third-place and final matches. Spanish-language coverage will be on Telemundo and NBC Universo.
