FIFAWWC Off To Flying Start

The FIFA Women’s World Cup got off to a flying start over the weekend with the quality of action on the field living up to the highest hopes of those who believe it will be a tipping point for Women’s sport.

RTÉ Sport and TG4 shared the first seven games to take place, producing 21 goals and wins for Brazil, England, France, Germany, Norway, Spain and Italy.

Big crowds in the grounds and strong traditional media coverage of the tournament across most of the major markets have also given the tournament a strong boost.

This was perhaps the goal of the weekend from Germany’s teenage sensation Giulia Gwinn securing a 1-0 win over China.

RTÉ made good use of it’s studio space with the use of different colours turning the same space used for the European Championship Qualifier against Denmark into the Women’s World Cup base of operations and finishing out the weekend as the home of the Sunday Game.

Here is Lisa Fallon alongside Stephanie Roche and Darragh Maloney talking about here belief that this would be a tipping point for the game.
