Despite being more miserable than the 0-13 defeat to the United States, the 1-5 defeat to Sweden still made the Thai women’s team stand out and hopefully go on to the 1/8 round of the 2019 World Cup. 

When the pairs of 2019 women’s World Cup semi-finals were determined, it was also the time when the record of the watched audience was set in this tournament. It is a surprise that women’s football is less concerned than men’s football.

Even Alex Morgan, the star of the American women’s football team, had to distribute leaflets to invite the audience to see the match between her team and the Thai women’s team in the group stage. It is a poignant image if people know that American women are the No. 1 candidate for the championship and Alex Morgan is a leading female football star and is called “David Beckham” of women’s football.

The efforts of Alex Morgan and the other female players in the 2019 World Cup have finally paid off. According to statistics from the Mist, the audience watching the match between England and Cameroon girls through TV is up to 6.9 million. This record was later broken in the English women’s next match against Norway in the quarterfinals with 7.9 million viewers watching over the TV. It is expected that this figure will be crushed in the upcoming semi-final between England and the US.

The Independent (UK) said the total number of viewers watching the 2019 Women’s World Cup in the UK on TV was 22.2 million, surpassing the record of 12.4 million viewers at the 2015 Women’s World Cup. Even 3 matches of the The England women’s team at the 2019 Women’s World Cup is also among the 10 football matches with the most viewers on TV this year.

Arkema, a French chemical company, recently purchased the naming rights for the French Women’s Football Championship (D1 Feminine) in a deal worth 1 million euros ($ 1.1 million) each year within 3 year. The tournament will be called D1 Arkema. Although the figure of 1 million euros is very modest compared to the 15 million euros per year that the men’s soccer tournament received from their main sponsor, but this is a very optimistic start.

“Becoming the sponsor of the D1 Feminine is a further expansion of our partnership with the Women’s World Cup. This is an asset for the Arkema brand and also a strong commitment of the Group. We accompany the French Football Federation in the country’s efforts to develop women’s football. This is also a great opportunity to enhance the image and status of women in society, ”said Le Haffaff Thierry, Arkema’s CEO.

According to Deloitte, 60% of the women’s soccer teams in the biggest leagues now have other sponsors with sponsors for the men’s soccer team in the same club. The consulting firm said the figure could reach 100% in the next Women’s World Cup season to take place in 2023. The number of European national associations with women’s football sponsors has increased from 9 in 2013 up to 17 in 2017.

Kelly Simmons, director of the professional women’s football league at the England Football Association, said the millions of pounds of deals had changed dramatically. Big deals will come with broadcast rights, such as how the Premier League for boys will bring in more than £ 3 billion a year from broadcasters. France’s highest women’s football tournament sold 5-year broadcast rights to Canal +, a pay TV company, for 6 million euros. Although this is only a small number, it is 6 times more than 2 years ago.

TF1, France’s most popular TV channel, raised the ad price twice a week for French women’s football matches, earning an estimated 9 million euros when the home team entered the knockout match. In the United Kingdom, the broadcast rights for women’s football were given to BT telecommunications company and BBC channel, almost without any money.

However, when the 2019 Women’s World Cup has just ended, it is also the start of negotiations to sign new contracts for the next season. With the increasing attractiveness of women’s football tournaments, the value of new contracts will not be low.

Asian women's football: deserves being heroics

When defender Saki Kumagai made the 11th minute decision and completed Japan’s incredible retrograde against the American team in the 2011 World Cup final, she not only wrote a new chapter for Japanese football but also gave world women’s football.

With that victory, Japan became the first country that surpassed all Germany, Norway or the United States to win a grand prize since these events took place in 1991.

Speaking of women’s football, the world may only notice Germany, the United States, Norway and Brazil, the teams that won 23 of the 27 first, second and third places at the Olympic and World Cup for women football from 1991 to 2008. Comparatively, in the recent 6 World Cups of men’s football, 10 different teams have been in the Top 3.

Asian women's football: deserves being heroics

However, in the 2011 World Cup, the rest of the world seems to have caught up with the top teams. To see more clearly, in the 2011 World Cup, the average difference in matches is only 1.5 goals, the lowest in the World Cup history until the 2015 World Cup. When the women football’s World Cup expanded to 16 teams in 1999, the average goal difference was reduced sharply and the number of unexpected results increased.

This change certainly has a significant contribution from Japan and other Asian teams. This is a little doubt because for a long time, Asia is still considered a low-lying area on the world’s women football ma. Remember in the 2014 World Cup, 4 teams of Iran, Japan, South Korea and Australia did not win a match and were at the bottom of the group stage. A year later at the Women’s World Cup, all five teams had at least one win, in which Thailand was the only team that did not qualify for the knockout round.
