One of the most successful sporting events this year was the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. It was the eight edition of the said tournament that contested by 24 women’s national teams representing member associations of FIFA. It concluded last July 7 with 52 matches staged in 9 prominent cities in France. The tournament is over, but the spirit of womanhood and equality remains as post-tournament news and commentaries says that this year’s event is a success not just to the teams, but to equality as a whole.

Right after lifting the trophy by the edition’s champion, US Women Team, the whole stadium gone wild as the audience booed the FIFA President Gianni Infantino and chants “Equal pay”. Golden Boot and Golden Ball holder Megan Rapinoe said after hearing the crowd, “I think everyone is ready for this conversation to move to the next step.” This year’s edition is said to be a tournament to be looked back because it completely shattered the myth that people are not into women’s football or women playing sports. Also, it gave the organizers and football stakeholders a lot of opportunities to work on the next and the coming editions of this international football event for women. “Everyone’s done with that; fans are done with that, players are done with that. In a lot of ways I think sponsors are done with that. Let’s get to the next point. What’s next? How do we support women’s federations and women’s programmes around the world? What can Fifa do to do that? What can we do to support the leagues around the world?” Rapinoe added.
In the previous editions of this international sporting tournament played by women, they had a very hard time garnering respect, support, attention and most importantly, funding. Nevertheless, the increase in this year’s audience in attendance, support from fans all over the world with almost 12 million tuning in, advertisements and bets clearly shows that people are starting to get hooked in women’s football and women playing sports. Most players agreed that this edition is not just an event for empowerment, but a standard sporting scene that celebrate, commemorate and strengthen womanhood and equality. Right now, “equal pay” seemed not possible, but the turnout of events this year together with the noise made by fans and the strong remarks of this edition’s champs, it may serve as an eye opener for everyone who belittles woman in sports.
