Big football fan but nope and have zero interest in watching.

Media doing a hype that they should be paid equally etc etc but know of nobody who is interested.

Can't possibly comment as I'm a feminist - I always did like sex; or used to!

The whole event is a massive Dykefest, but nothing to compare .. yet ? with the DinahShore classic dyke bonanza in P Springs !

A well-known football pundit explained it this way, In the premiership when a player receives the ball he has a nanosecond to decide what to do with it and pass it such is the pace of the game. As you progress down the leagues reaction times are longer and the game is not so fast. In the women’s game they could iron a shirt before having to decide what to do with it. Maybe it will get better but the American women have been playing ‘soccer’ for a long time now and although they are probably the best team in the world they’d be lucky to get a turn out for a decent pub team.

Nope.

FC Dallas under-15 boys squad beat the U.S. Women's National Team in a scrimmage, I am just going to leave this here . I don't watch under-15 boys soccer either.

I've tried to watch when I can. The really professional teams nowadays are really skilled and the games can be a pleasure to watch, its a pity that they are so poorly supported.

Because this is a National competition there are no ticket sales on the day, they have to be from the UEFA / FIFA website. So as to ensure segregation of the fans, Even locals cannot buy on the day

So even if you were in the area and the sun was shining and you fancied taking in a game even with 20k empty seats you cannot.

Obviously the woman's game is also besotted with fan violence

Just stating the obvious, the Palm Springs golf event attracts about 20, 000 lesbians over a long weekend !
Igsve no problem with that just make sure you’re out of town when it happens ... Dyke fest is not necessarily a derogatory term .. google it !

Most of us have grown up past this sort of attitude.
I would certainly not wish to be associated with these sort of comments.

​​​​​​​I say this as a football fan- and a feminist. It's truly awful. I cannot say I have ever seen a 13-0 result but I'm sure they happen amongst under tens. The goalkeeping is slo mo, the Thai keeper sort of waved herself in the general direction of the ball. It's what I imagine watching milk float racing would be like.

Not really a comment merely a statement of fact . whether you wish to be associated with the comment or not it is an actual event commonly referred to as a Dyke fest ..20,000 all gathered together .. quite a spectacle ! Virtue signaling not required
no need to virtue signal

Not a footy fan but the bits I've seen have been more encouraging than watching the overpaid pretentious male equivalents.

Don't forget the British FA banned female football in 1921 because it was getting bigger crowds than the boy's game
