ontd_fb, it's time to get pumped about...

The Women's World Cup!!!


(Play this as you read the rest of the post for maximum pumping-up effect.)

When is the Women's World Cup?

It starts bright and early TOMORROW, June 26th, at 9AM EST with France v. Nigeria, followed by Germany v. Canada at 12!

There's a schedule of all the group stage matches here, which you can adjust for your time zone!

How can I watch the Women's World Cup?

WWC '11 is getting an unprecedented amount of broadcast coverage! Here's as much info as I could find:

USA:  All matches on either ESPN or ESPN2 as well as ESPN3.com, ESPN Mobile TV, and Univision

CBC and Rogers Sportsnet will be broadcasting most matches, with Telelatino also broadcasting

GERMANY: ARD and ZDF will broadcast all matches.

ENGLAND: England's group matches and any subsequent England matches will be live on BBC Red Button and the BBC Sport website. The final will be broadcast live on BBC3.

AUSTRALIA: SBS and theworldgame.sbs.com.au.

EUROPE: Eurosport and the European Broadcast Union have the rights to the WWC.

THE MIDDLE EAST/NORTH AFRICA: Al-Jazeera has broadcast rights.

Unfortunately I can't find any more information than that. If you can find info for Asia/South America or more specific details for different countries in Europe/Middle East/North Africa please comment!

Where can I find info on the teams in the Women's World Cup?
Lots of places! A good place to start is Our Game Magazine's nation-by-nation overview.

For more details, check out All White Kit, where all of the pre-tournament coverage has been rounded up over the past few days.

If you really want to be a know-it-all, get yourself a copy of All White Kit and the Equalizer's Complete Guide to the 2011 WWC.

I hope you're all as excited as I am right now because it's gonna be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

To thank you for your time, here's a bit of vintage WWC advertising:


Now I turn the questions over to you, _fb:
Who are you rooting for? Who do you think will win? Which matches are going to be the most exciting? Did you have a Women's World Cup Barbie and if so why weren't we childhood friends??
