Why FOX’s TV Coverage of the Women’s World Cup May Be Doomed

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Confidence in FOX Sports' expected level of coverage for the 2015 Women's World Cup and men's World Cup 2018/2022 is already at a low.

I won't rehash the reasons why (although there is extensive coverage of it on World Soccer Talk and other sites such as Awful Announcing) but there has been little shown so far from the network to indicate that it can reach the heights set by ESPN over the last two tournaments.

Piers Morgan and Michael Strahan trying to explain the difference between football and fútbol before the 2011 Champions League Final, and throwing poor Gus Johnson into the proverbial fire, are prime examples of the misses on FOX's tote-board.

Why I’m Scared What FOX Sports Will Do With Its World Cup Coverage For 2015-2022

Whether it's the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup or World Cup 2018 in Russia or World Cup 2022 in Qatar, I am seriously concerned that FOX Sports is going to ruin the viewing experience of the biggest soccer tournaments for people in the United States.
