Women's World Cup 2019 live stream: how to watch every football match online from anywhere

Times couldn't be any more exciting in women's soccer. It's experiencing its biggest popularity ever and now the FIFA Women's World Cup 2019 has arrived. The eighth edition of the tournament is happening in France, with 24 teams battling it out for the biggest prize there is in football. Regardless of where you are on the planet, our guide below for getting a 2019 Women’s World Cup live stream will ensure you don’t miss a kick.

The US women's national team go into the tournament looking to lift the Sawaya & Moroni-designed spiral-shaped trophy for an incredible fourth time, but hosts France, along with Germany and the Netherlands are all being widely tipped to be crowned world champions.

The defending champions are unsurprisingly the outright favorites once again (by some margin according to Betfair), with the US, led by joint captains Alex Morgan and Carli Lloyd, looking particularly formidable up front as they attempt to win the tournament yet again.  

Interest in the Women's World Cup has never been greater, with more than 720,000 tickets already having been snapped up for the tournament, and the opening match, semi-finals and final, all selling out within 48 hours of going on sale.

While France have never made it past the semi-finals, many are tipping the hosts to replicate the success of their male counterparts in Russia last year. Alternatively, current Olympic champions Germany are being backed by many pundits to provide the biggest challenge to the US.

If you want to know where you'll be able to watch every single match, we'll tell you exactly where you can catch them online with our 2019 Women's World Cup live stream guide.

What is the format of the 2019 Women's World Cup?

This year’s tournament features 24 teams broken into six groups of four teams each. 

The winner and runner-up of each group automatically go through to the round of 16, along with the four third-placed teams that have accumulated the most points. 

From then on it’s a knock-out competition right the way until the final in Lyon.

What teams are competing in this year's Women's World Cup?


Home soil can often provide an advantage for host nations, and coach Corinne Diacre will be hoping that gives her well-fancied side the edge. Blessed with star quality across the squad, high scoring midfielder Eugene Le Sommer is a good bet for the tournament’s golden boot.

Korea Republic  
While midfielders Ji So-yum and Cho So-Hyun have shone brightly while playing in London in the FA WSL (turning out for Chelsea and West Ham respectively), the Koreans  lack quality throughout the squad to be contenders, but should at least expect to make it through the group stage.  

Winners in 1995, Norway were dominant in the 1990s but haven't been quite the footballing force since the end of that decade. A row between the Norwegian FA and Ballon D'Or winner Ada Hegerberg has placed a cloud over preparations, with the country's best player making herself unavailable for selection.  

Africa's most successful team (they've won the 11 out of 13 African Championships), have qualified for every World Cup, but have never really imposed themselves on the tournament, having never progressed beyond the quarter-finals. All eyes this time around will be on Barcelona's immense but inconsistent forward Asisat Oshoala. 


Currently 15th in the world rankings, the 1999 runners-up will struggle to progress beyond the second round, although PSG midfielder Wang Shuang has the chops to be one of the tournaments star players.

Anything less than the semi-finals will roundly be regarded as a failure for Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side. The current Olympic champs have beaten France, Sweden and Italy already in 2019 and will hope to carry on their good form.

South Africa   
While able to boast NWSL stars like Janine Van Wyk and Linda Mothalo, hopes won't be high for Banyana Banyana in their first World Cup, with the team heading into the tournament on a wretched run of nine straight defeats.

Fans will be hoping Spain's second appearance in the World Cup will be a more harmonious affair than their debut in 2015, which saw the players mount a mutinous campaign against then-coach Ignacio Quereda. Current gaffer Jorge Vilda is putting his faith in youth and has left  veteran star striker Vero Boquete out of the squad.


Ranked sixth in the world, the Aussies have fallen at the quarter-final stage in the last three World Cups. Captain and star striker played in each of those tournaments but failed to score in any, despite being the all-time leading goalscorer in the NWSL. One suspects if she finds her scoring boots her side may make it further than the last eight this time out. 

A run of nine straight defeats tells its own story. Discontent behind the scenes and amongst the fanbase coupled with an over-reliance on fading superstar Marta means the Seleção Femenina look nothing short of a mess going into the tournament.

Returning to the tournament after a 20-year absence, much of their hopes rest on the form of Juventus’s winger Barbara Bonansea, who’s trickery and silky skills are set to be the scourge of defending fullbacks during the tournament.

It may be damage limitation for the debutant Reggae Girlz, who find themselves in a tough Group C. Having been forced to raise cash via fund-raising events in the run-up to cover overheads, they’ll not be short of fans routing for them in France.


The South Americans are in their first finals since 2003. Having lost all six of their previous World Cup matches, a positive result of any sort in a challenging group will be seen as headway. Free-scoring Lyon forward Sole Jaimes will be relishing the chance to help that progression. 

The Lionesses will be looking to improve upon their impressive semi-final showing in 2015. The loss of midfielder Jordan Nobbs to injury deprives coach Phil Neville of a genuinely world class talent, but striker Beth Mead’s recent good form for Arsenal suggests England won’t struggle for goals.

Shelley Kerr's side will be looking to make amends for the 6-0 thrashing at the hands of England at Euro 2017 when the two teams meet in their first round clash. They've improved a great deal since that drubbing, and make a decent bet to qualify for the knockout stages despite being in arguably the tournament's toughest group.

With an impressive Women’s World Cup pedigree (they were runners up last time out and were winners in 2011), plus experience running through the side it would be a major shock for Takakura Osako’s side not to progress to the later stages of the tournament.


In Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema, the Dutch have arguably the tournament's most potent goalscorer. Few teams will fancy facing the current European champions, but their recent form does raise question marks over their ability to win the tournament.

The hosts of the 2015 World Cup are unbeaten in 2019 with just one goal conceded in seven games against strong opposition and stand as a decent outside bet.

New Zealand  
History suggests the Kiwis campaign may be short-lived, having been knocked out in the group stages in each of their four previous World Cup appearances. Nevertheless, coach Tom Sermanni's side appear to be made of sterner stuff this round and may just have enough this time round to  make it through to the knockout stages.

Much like their appearance in the 2015 World Cup, little is expected of the Indomitable Lionesses in France. Last time out they managed to reach the second round against the odds, and will need to show the same sort of spirit that match that achievement this time round.


The Copa America Femenina runners-up behind Brazil are making their World Cup debut in France. They’re in woeful form in the run-up, but will at least be hoping to take points off fellow outsiders Thailand in Group F. 

Peter Gerhardsson's squad will be looking to better their last showing on the game's greatest stage, after reaching the last 16 in 2015. Well organised, with a formidable defence, Sweden's lack of consistent goal threat prevents them from being serious contenders.

Drawn in a favorable group, with attacking options the envy of every other side and big game experience throughout the squad, all adds up to a huge amount of expectation for coach Jill Elli's side. Anything less than a fourth World Cup title for a team featuring Alex Morgan, Crystal Dunn, Carli Lloyd, Tobin Heath and Mallory Pugh will be seen as a major disappointment.

Sharing rank outsider status with Cameroon, and Jamaica, Nuengruethai Sathongwien's squad look unlikely to qualify from the group stage in their maiden World Cup. Their prolific American-born forward Suchawadee Nildhamrong will provide their main attacking threat, but it would be a major shock for the inexperienced team to progress beyond the opening stage. 

What grounds are being used for the 2019 Women's World Cup?

Parc des Princes, Paris
Paris Saint-Germain home since 1974, the 47,929 capacity stadium will host the tournaments opener between France and Korea Republic.

Stade Auguste-Delaune, Reims
Named after a WWII Resistance fighter, the stadium's unusual spire-like floodlights make it one of France's most unique football grounds.

Stade des Alpes, Grenoble
Built in 2008, the stadium features a solar panelled roof that provides 20% of the ground’s energy needs

Roazhon Park, Rennes
One of the oldest and most atmospheric French football grounds, Roazhon Park was built in 1912 and was completely renovated in 2004.

Stade du Hainaut, Valenciennes
The tournament's most northernly situated stadium, has a capacity of 22,600.

Stade de la Mosson, Montpellier
The 2019 Women's World Cup could prove something of a swan song for the 19,300 capacity ground, with plans in place to build a new stadium for Montpellier in 2022.

Allianz Riviera, Nice
England are due to play two Group matches in this modern stadium which boasts a view of the Alps. 

Stade Oceane, Le Havre
Arguably the tournament's most striking stadium, like the Stade des Alpes, the Le Havre's ground boasts impressive green credentials with the complex producing more energy than it consumes thanks to solar cladding.

Stade de Lyon, Lyon
Designed by Populous, the same architects responsible for Arsenal Emirates and the new Tottenham Stadium, 57,900 ground which opened in 2016 is set to hold the semi-finals and final.
