The 2019 Women's World Cup is kicking off in France from June 7 to July 7, 2019. This is the first time France will be hosting the event and matches are planned in nine cities around the country. There are 24 competing teams taking part in the Women's World Cup. To help you keep pace with the tournament, here are four frequently asked questions about the 2019 Women's World Cup answered:
- Where will the opening match take place? The opening match of the Women's World Cup will take place on June 7 in Paris. The following 16 matches between June 22 and June 25 will take place in Valentines, Le Havre, Reims, Paris, Rennes, Grenoble, Nice, and Montpellier. The quarter-final matches between June 27 and June 29 will take place in Valentines, Le Havre, Paris, and Rennes. The semi-final matches will take place in Lyon between July 2 and July 3, and the match for third place on July 6 will be in Nice. The final game will be Lyon on July 7.
- How much are tickets? Individual match tickets cost between $15 to $95 and went on general sale in March. However, you can also purchase Women's World Cup packages rather than individual tickets.
- Why is Lyon hosting the semi-finals and final game? You might think that Paris would be the city chosen for the opening, semi-finals, and final games. But Lyon has an amazing women's club team starring England's Lucy Bronze. It's difficult to get people to visit Paris for sporting events, but Lyon is the leader for women's soccer.
- Does Team USA stand a chance? Definitely! Team USA is the defending champion and the team remains strong. The team is also coached by English-born Jill Ellis. However, Team USA will still have to give it their all. France's team beat Team USA 3 to 1 in January and Japan came in second in 2015.
