Mark the date – June 6 2019. When the history books recount the rise of Women’s soccer, the start of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup may be seen as a sea change moment. First, there’s the spectacle of an opening ceremony to enjoy, and then we move on to the tournament’s first match – and you’re in the right place to discover how to live stream France vs South Korea and the rest of the festivities, no matter where in the world you are.
Live stream France vs South Korea and opening ceremony – where and when
It all gets going in Paris tonight – the famous old Parc des Princes (still home of Paris Saint-Germain) will be host to the razzmatazz of the opening ceremony first, and then the first 90 minutes of actual soccer.
To the match itself first of all – that is due to kick-off today at 9pm local time (so 3pm ET, 12pm midday PT, 8pm BST).
But if you’d also like to see the spectacle of the opening ceremony, which is set to feature popular French singer Jain, then tune in half-an-hour before kick-off.
France will be looking to take inspiration from their male counterparts’ World Cup victory in Russia last year, and they enter their own tournament with high expectations. They’re already ranked number 4 in the world (following a brilliant 3-1 win over the US in January), and that home-crowd advantage can surely only help. They are overwhelming favorites to open their account successfully in Paris, and a lot of eyes will be on exciting midfielder Kadidiatou Diani to turn on the style early doors.
While they’ll be cheered enthusiastically from faraway supporters back at home, nobody is giving Korea much of a chance of making an impact at the 2019 World Cup. If you follow the Women’s Super League in the UK, then you may recognise Chelsea midfielder Ji So-Yun. She’ll need to put in an awesome performance to get the best from her teammates in Paris today.
Whether you’re watching Women’s soccer for the first time or you’ve been a fan for years, you’ve come to the right place to find out how to live stream France vs South Korea at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup – no matter where on Earth you are.
Watch a FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 live stream from outside your country
For devotees to Women’s soccer, you won’t want to miss a minute of the 2019 FIFA World Cup. For broadcaster details in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand keep on scrolling down this page.
But if you try to access those streams (or any other domestic coverage) from overseas, you’ll soon be tackled by a geo-restriction. Meaning you won’t be able to watch. At least not without either compromising your security with a dodgy, illegal stream or by installing a VPN and relocating your laptop or mobile IP address back to one in your home country.
Do that, and your preferred viewing device will think its back in your home country and so will be able to show the stream you were originally after – with the added plus of an extra layer of security and anonymity.
From the 100+ Virtual Private Networks we’ve tested, it’s ExpressVPN that comes out as a #1 pick. It’s fast, easy to use and one of the most secure options out there.
