Notes
  • ESPN broadcast all matches for the 1999 Women's World Cup but cut it back to 18 of the 32 for 2003 due to conflicts with college football and the NFL.
  • 1999 featured the highest rated Women's Soccer match with the US/ China match until 2015. 11.4% of the nation's televisions tuned into the match.
  • 2007 was the first Women's World Cup streamed online. All 32 matches were streamed on the fairly new ESPN 360, but games were not archived. 2007 is also the only year games were produced in studio. ESPN produced all the opening round matches in studio and didn't send their own broadcast team to China until the quarterfinals.
  • 2011 became the first Women's World Cup to have games archived on ESPN3.
  • 2015 became the first Women's World Cup to have the English World Feed available in the US. Fox used the English World Feed for their archive on Fox Soccer 2 Go. 2015 also streamed games on Fox Sports Go.
  • The USA/Japan 2015 Final became the highest ever rated soccer match in the US. 12.9% of the nation tuned into the match on Fox. An average 25.4 million viewers watched the entire match, with 30.9 viewers catching the final 15 minutes of the match.[15] Spanish network Telemundo drew another 1.27 million viewers to boost the overall viewership to 26.7 million.[16]
