Kick off the FIFA Women’s World Cup with Google
Futebol, Fußball, football, soccer … No matter where you’re from, it’s one of the most popular sports all over the world. Tomorrow, the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ will kick off, and here’s how Google can help you keep up with the tournament and your favorite teams.
Be in the know with Search and the Assistant
If you’re busy during a match, Search can help you find the information you need including stats, news, and lineups. If you search for any match, you’ll see a timeline with photos, commentary and every important play as it happens. You can also subscribe to receive notifications and updates about your favorite team by looking it up on the Google Search app and tapping “Follow.”
You’ll also be able to track up to three real-time game scores right on your Android phone screen. Search for the match you’re looking for, then tap and drag to pin the match anywhere on your screen. Once the matches are over, click the pinned score to go back the game summary on Google Search and you will find a video with highlights and exciting plays immediately after every game.
As always, the Google Assistant is here to help with questions like, “Hey Google, when does France play next in the Women’s World Cup?” or ”Ok Google, show me the Women’s World Cup standings.” And if your country is competing, you’ll see custom Google Doodles by local artists from the participating countries. All Google Doodles will all be available as they are unveiled at google.com/doodles.
See more on YouTube
FIFA, alongside a number of their FIFA World Cup broadcast partners, will upload comprehensive highlights to every game on their YouTube channels, as well as top FIFA World Cup moments and behind-the-scenes content. Broadcasters include the BBC in the UK, ARD and ZDF in Germany, J SPORTS in Japan, Fox Sports and Telemundo in the U.S. and beIN in the Middle East, North Africa and selected Asian territories.
Don’t miss a moment with Google News
Keep your eye on the ball as the action happens with a dedicated FIFA Women’s World Cup Google News interactive tracker for Android. Quickly find scores, upcoming matches and watch game highlights. From the group stage to the final showdown, explore the tournament through full coverage and analysis of your favorite teams and players.
Contribute to the history of women in soccer
It was not long ago when women were actually prohibited from playing in countries such as Brazil, England, France and Germany. To rediscover the history of women in soccer, Google Arts & Culture is working with the Football Museum in Brazil to create a living digital archive of the years when women were banned. Everyone is invited to contribute with photos, articles from local newspapers, audio and video files about women’s soccer from their personal collections. Together we can fill the historical gaps and tell the history of women in soccer.
Grab your jersey and claim your spot on the couch—the games start tomorrow!
