FIFA awards 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup media rights in Poland!

FIFA has awarded the exclusive rights in Poland to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group). NENT Group will show every match from the 2023 edition in Australia and New Zealand, the biggest event in the international women’s game, on its Viaplay platform in Poland.

NENT Group continues to focus investments on women’s sport in all territories and already held the exclusive rights to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, which it acquired at the end of last year.

Jean-Christophe Petit, FIFA’s Director of Media Rights & Content Services, said: “NENT Group has demonstrated a strong commitment to women’s football and we are happy to extend our partnership with them on the FIFA Women’s World Cup. We are looking forward to working with NENT Group to continue to grow the popularity of the women’s game in Poland.”

The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup – Australia & New Zealand will feature a new final competition format with expanded participation: 32 teams (previously 24) will compete in the first-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup™ to be hosted by two countries. The tournament is set to take place from July 20 to August 20, 2023.

Since its inception in 1991, the FIFA Women’s World Cup has grown exponentially to claim the crown of the most-watched single-sport event for women globally. The most recent edition – France 2019 – attracted a record audience of over 1.1 billion viewers and smashed domestic viewing figures in many territories.

Through the sale of media rights for its football tournaments, FIFA generates income that is essential to support and develop football around the world, for instance through the FIFA Forward development programme.
