The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup promises to be the biggest event of its kind yet.
Taking place in France across nine venues, the action gets underway on Friday, June 7 when the host nation, and one of the favourites, tackle South Korea at Paris Saint-Germain’s Parc des Princes in the capital, a match that was rapidly sold out.
Already, there has been a massive upsurge in interest in the women’s game in the UK, with over 43,000 fans taking to Wembley to watch Manchester City’s 3-0 win over West Ham in the Women’s FA Cup final, while Scotland attracted a record attendance for their pre-tournament friendly against Jamaica – a match they won 3-2 at Hampden.
FIFA reported in May that 720,000 tickets for the competition had been sold, putting it on track to be better attended than the competition in Canada four years ago.
As such, the World Cup is likely to be a big draw and here’s how you can follow the action from across the Channel.
The BBC will be carrying live coverage of the tournament from France, with matches available across the station’s channels and interactive coverage.
BBC One will carry the biggest games, including the opener, those involving England and the World Cup final, which takes place in Lyon, home of the Women’s Champions League winners, on Sunday, July 7 with a 16:00 BST kick-off time.
While there will be a handful of games on BBC Two, all other matches will be available to watch on BBC Red Button.
Meanwhile, every match will be available to watch across the BBC’s digital platforms, including BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport Live.
The iPlayer app can be downloaded from the app store on a variety of devices and will allow the user to follow the action in France live.
