Women's World Cup 2015

Anyone going to a match? Anyone going to watch on TV?

I'm driving up from Minneapolis to Winnipeg this Sunday to catch the Monday matches.

I wish I was going. But i'm hoping to go to one of the big soccer bars in NYC for USA-Sweden which could be just as fun.

This seems like the most unpredictable men's or women's tournament in recent memory. Japan, USA, Germany, France, Canada, Sweden, Brazil, England all possibly capable of winning. Maybe throw in Australia, South Korea, Norway & Switzerland.

Sadly due to the time difference the matches are in the middle of the night here. But I'll still keep track of what our girls are doing. So proud they made it to the world cup!

It's still far less important than male cups, bbut the media are really doing quite a bit of coverage this time around. So I'll follow what I can, probably won't be able to watch the matches though.

Enjoy going to see them! Going to Canada - NL per chance?

Monday will be Sweden v. Nigeria, then USA v. Australia.

There's a good chance I'll do Friday, too, USA v. Sweden.

I'm really happy that starting next year, we will be able to play with the women's teams in the Fifa series. Pretty cool.

I can't look at Hope Solo the same way since the nude photos leaked. She left nothing to the imagination.

Agreed. Hope Solo has not marketed herself as a professional athlete very well. She comes across as a "spoiled brat" in the media.

I bought 2 stadium passes to see all 7 Winnipeg games with a friend. Tickets were remarkably affordable, $270 works out to about $40 a game. Taking vacation days from work; I'm not missing this for the world!

Teams are slowly starting to arrive during the week - I'll be staking out the practice fields (which is also where I play on occasion). I'm gonna be a hooligan for the next few weeks.

It's just a shame I can't see team Canada play here. I was fortunate enough to catch the USA vs. Canada exhibition here last year, and there will definitely be some exciting matches coming from this group.

I agree, the price seemed totally worth it. It should be a blast.
My only concern is the possible traffic at the border on Friday for the USA game.

I along with many others, probably know nothing about Moncton. I wonder how those fans will be. They lucked into one of the best group games in England vs France.

Even with the Pan Am games Toronto or Hamilton probably would've been fine.

Moncton was a blast to end U2 360.
(Hell of a drive from Manchester, NH though.)

Yay we won our first match. Friday the match starts at midnight my time, so if I can stay awake I will definitely watch that one.
