FOX announces broadcaster line-up for Women’s World Cup quarterfinals

FOX Sports has released the line-up of broadcasters that will be calling the quarterfinal matches of the 2015 Women’s World Cup.

JP Dellacamera, Tony DiCicco and Cat Whitehill will continue to call the U.S. Women’s National team matches for the tournament when the USWNT take on China in a rematch of the 1999 World Cup final that gave the United States their second World Cup title.

Before the USA vs. China kick off, Germany takes on France which will be covered by Justin Kutcher and Aly Wagner.

Saturday’s double header will be covered by Jenn Hildreth and Kyndra de St. Aubin for Australia vs. Japan followed by coverage from John Strong and Danielle Slaton for the game between host nation Canada and England.

So far, FOX’s coverage of the Women’s World Cup has received mixed reviews. However the numbers watching the USWNT matches have been outstanding with 4.5 million tuning in for the USA-Sweden game.

The broadcasters for the semi-finals and third place match will be announced later next week. The decisions will likely be based upon who makes it through to the next rounds.

Overall, the in-studio talent has been solid. With a spectacular use of graphics and set-design, the network has spared no expense to bring viewers the best looking Women’s World Cup to date. As the competition gets more intense in these last few matches, it will be interesting to see how the broadcasters react in the final moments of the competition.
