It's time. The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is here. The U.S. Women are looking to repeat — and for their fourth title since 1991. (Which also was the first time the tournament was held.)
The question, then, is how can you stream the 2019 FIFA World Cup online if you've cut the cord — because everyone should be able to watch every game live. And you can. Here's what's up:
The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is being hosted by France, with nine participating host cities. This championship event runs from June 7 through July 7, with national soccer squads competing in a group stage leading into a knockout stage. There are seven groups, each consisting of four teams who play against one another. Play in the group stage determines the 16 teams that advance to the knockout stage. The knockout stage is a single elimination tournament, where four wins earns a championship for a team, and their country.
The United States Women's National Team enters the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup as both defending champions and betting favorites. The U.S. team is full of stars, led by winger Tobin Heath and midfielder Lindsey Horan, and of course Alex Morgan. Heath is an experienced creative player who has seen a sharp rise in her scoring recently, and Natalie Weiner of Bleacher Report calls her "the Americans' most impactful attacker." Horan is a tactical player who shows her value in gaining possession for her team, as she led the league in winning faceoffs.
The host team from France is expected to be one of the top challengers to the U.S., along with Germany and England. The French team is more than just a host qualifier team, with a 10-1 record in friendly matches over the last year. Defender Wendie Renard is a strong passer and blocker, but also manages to score consistently. The German team has won two of the last four World Cup championships, and they enter this World Cup as Olympic gold medalists from 2016. Germany's top player, Dzsenifer Marozsan, was injured during her last World Cup appearance, so she has extra motivation as she enters this year fully healthy.

To use 4K in the Fox apps, you will need to have a Roku 4K device, Roku 4K TV, or and Apple TV 4K. Billy Steele of Engadget reports that Fox plans to add more devices in the future, but it isn't clear if that will happen before the end of this FIFA Women's World Cup. If you have a compatible device, make sure to update your app, and enjoy the crisp 4K presentation.
Watch the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup on Fox
An antenna is the easiest way to start off with the broadcast networks, including the 22 matches that Fox will broadcast of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.
