TG4 and RTÉ Partner to Secure Irish Broadcasting Rights for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup
16 Apr 2019 : Nathan Griffin
2019 FIFA Women's World Cup
RTÉ and TG4 have reached an agreement with FIFA for live coverage of every game in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France this summer.

Beginning on Friday 7 June with the Opening Ceremony and the Group A meeting of hosts France and Korea, RTÉ and TG4 will share coverage throughout the duration of the tournament with all games free-to-air for Irish viewers.

RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player will broadcast 23 matches including three of the quarter-finals, one semi-final and the final on Sunday 7 July.

TG4 will broadcast 29 matches in total including the opening match, one quarter-final, one semi-final, the match for 3rdplace and highlights of the final.

Declan McBennett, RTÉ Group Head of Sport said

“RTÉ are delighted that alongside TG4 we can, for the first time ever, bring the FIFA Women’s World Cup in its entirety free-to-air to Irish viewers. It is particularly fitting to be making this announcement exactly six months on from the launch of the 20 x 20 initiative to create a cultural shift in our perception of girls and women in sport."

Rónán Ó Coisdealbha, Head of Sport TG4 said: 

“TG4 has been a proactive supporter of Women's Sport for many years. This new collaboration is another step in the right direction and ties in well with the very important 20x20 campaign. It is also a great example of how Public Service Media outlets can collaborate to bring the best of television content, free to air, to loyal audiences.”

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup begins in France on Friday, June 7th.
