Where to watch the 2023 Women's World Cup matches in the Philly region
The 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup — hosted by Australia and New Zealand — kicks off early Thursday morning, and if all goes well, Americans will have much to cheer about.
Making their tournament debut Friday versus Vietnam, the U.S. Women's National Team is the overwhelming favorite to win the tournament. If they emerge victorious, it will be the team's third consecutive title.
Fans can view the full World Cup schedule online. Each of the U.S. team's matches will air on FOX and FOX Sports 1, and Philadelphians may recognize a familiar voice as Sixers play-by-play announcer Kate Scott will call games.
So far, the USWNT's matches are as follows (in EST):
• Friday, July 21 at 9 p.m. vs. Vietnam
• Wednesday, July 26 at 9 p.m. vs. Netherlands
• Tuesday, Aug. 1 at 3 a.m. vs. Portugal
Here are some of the bars and restaurants across the region that are celebrating the highly anticipated action of the Women's World Cup with special events and deals that coincide with the U.S. matches — the ones that air before 3 a.m. locally, anyway.
