talkSPORT wins rights for FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019

talkSPORT will be broadcasting every England and Scotland game throughout next month’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, led by Kick Off show presenter Natalie Sawyer.

There’ll be further cover of the tournament, including the opening game, both semis and final, across talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2, capturing all the action from France with analysis of the build-up to the biggest ever event in women’s football.

Joining Natalie Sawyer for the duration of the tournament will be West Ham Ladies FA Cup finalist and former England player Claire Rafferty, Soccer Saturday reporter Faye Carruthers and talkSPORT commentator Sam Matterface plus regular Laura Woods at Breakfast and beyond.

Natalie Sawyer said: “A wealth of talkSPORT talent will be covering this World Cup and I’m incredibly excited to be at the heart of it. With England set to be strong contenders, this fiesta of football promises to capture the imagination of the country in the same way that the men’s tournament did last summer. I’m looking forward to playing my part in energising our coverage with all the drama from France as it unfolds.”

England captain Steph Houghton said: “talkSPORT’s coverage of the tournament will be another great boost for the game and a surefire way to get fans backing the team at home and abroad. We’ll be giving everything to make the country proud and inspire football fans across the world.”

The FIFA Women’s World Cup starts in France on 7 June with the final held one month later.
