The sport of soccer has always been a social game, but the way people interact on social media is increasingly becoming more intense and focused on player, team and individual relationships.
That’s where the stories of games can really shine, and it’s the reason why this weekend’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Final will be a moment to remember.
With the world’s attention now focused on the tournament, the sport of women’s soccer is being celebrated at every level.
The World Cup is the biggest international sporting event in history, but women’s sports are also key elements of the Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games and the Paralympics.
As part of the World Cup’s global celebrations, ESPN will host a live broadcast from the FIFA Women World Cup final on Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
ESPN is also hosting a series of “Women’s Soccer Friday” webcasts on Friday and Saturday, each featuring an exclusive story from the game.
The series, “Women in Sport,” will feature five stories each from the U.S. and Canada to highlight the stories behind some of the biggest moments in women’s sport.
Each story will be followed by an interview with the soccer star, a look back at the year, the game and the culture of the sport, followed by a story about the woman who is inspiring the sport.ESPN’s Women in Sport series is a partnership between ESPN and ESPN FC, the global sports media company, which is the official partner of the FIFA World Cup.
The women’s stories will be produced by The Sports Index, a team of ESPN experts and writers.
The Women in Sports series will premiere on ESPN’s YouTube channel on Thursday, March 10.
