FOX adds Women’s World Cup Final programming and USWNT marathon

Rob-Stone

This Sunday’s broadcast of the 2015 Women’s World Cup Final between USA and Japan will begin an hour earlier (at 5pm ET instead of 6pm). Kickoff time remains at 7pm ET on the over-the-air FOX network.

In addition to an hour extra of pre-match coverage, FOX continues after the match with a half-hour postgame show, followed by a one-hour edition of Women’s World Cup Tonight at 9:30 PM ET on FOX Sports 1. FOX Sports’ wrap-up coverage includes live reactions from coaches and players on-site at BC Place in Vancouver.

Meanwhile, FOX is pouring on the USWNT hype ahead of Sunday’s final by announcing two marathons on FOX Sports 1, one prior to and one after the USWNT’s championship showdown with Japan on Sunday. The first begins in the early morning hours on Friday, July 3, (3:00 AM ET) and runs through 5:00 PM ET, playing the USWNT’s group stage, round of 16, quarterfinal and semifinal matches, plus the Japan vs. England semifinal in which Japan emerged victorious and earned the right to face the U.S. for the trophy. The second marathon begins at 3:00 AM ET early on Tuesday, July 7, running until 5:00 PM ET that evening, and showcases each of the USWNT’s seven Women’s World Cup matches, including a replay of Sunday’s final.

    I’m waiting for someone to mention Jenn Hildreth’s botched call last night of the own goal. She and St. Aubin seemed oblivious to the fact that goal line technology is an instant ruling and decision. All they said was goal line technology is in effect (yes, we know that).
    Even the Fox stat person didn’t change the scoreline until after the kickoff.
    Hildreth and St. Aubin seemed to think it was an NFL style 10 minute review with headphones, etc. (The Ref signaled “goal” immediately!)

    Don’t get me started on Hildreth referring to stoppage time as extra time, goal line as end line, touch line as sideline, etc.

    Overall Hildreth/St. Aubin had an ok tournament but how on Earth was John Strong not behind the microphone for this match?

      I do agree that it was a botched call but I have two points to make. John Strong left to prepare for the Gold Cup after the WWC quartefinals, and Hildreth/St. Aubin deserved the assignment. Also, Fox doesn’t have control of the scoreline, which comes directly from the world feed.

        I stand corrected about Strong. And your point about Hikdreth deserving semi-final us well taken.
