What will be interesting will be which FTA broadcaster gets the rights. Something tells me that SBS won't win the rights and it would go to a major FTA network.
I reckon it'll be SBS and Foxtel. 7 and 9 will have competing sports when it's on, ABC doesn't do sport and 10 is for teenagers.

1/10 - needs original material.
But it's true that women's soccer is a bit sh*t.

If Megan Rapinoe was serious about getting equal pay she would be pushing for women to be able to play alongside men in mixed teams. She doesn't because she knows she wouldn't get a game.

Australia will automatically qualify as a host nation. Do New Zealand also automatically qualify or can there be only one host nation who automatically qualifies in a joint-bid?

I rate Milicic. He should have got the Melbourne Heart job ahead of Aloisi back in the day. Was Popovic's number 2 when they won the ACL and was on his way to coach in Croatia when he got the Matildas call. Then again he may one of these types that's a great coach but not a great manager.

For purely romantic reasons wouldn't mind NZ coach Tommy Sermanni make a comeback like the prodigal son he is. We've stolen things of New Zealand before.

Do FIFA sell these rights? Will the local admin get a say?
Are these things clean in world soccer?

Can SBS or the ABC pay enough?

So many questions, sorry !!

Suggestion this morning on social media that Mackenzie Arnold has signed with West Ham but I have not found anything official.

If it is true, then there are only EVE and Kennedy in the NWSL and since Orlando isn't playing the Challenge Cup, there are no Australians involved in that tournament.
