Where to Watch the FIFA Women’s World Cup?

As The Matildas move into the Women’s World Cup quarter-finals Channel 7 have made the decision to delay the 6 pm News Bulletin to allow Aussies to watch the match. The decision echoes the unprecedented popularity the world cup has had on Aussie audiences, with Australia’s victory over Denmark setting the record for the largest television audience for 2023 for Channel Seven. The game drew an audience of 2.29 million people in major cities – an average audience higher than every National Rugby League grand final and every Origin match since 2016.

Delaying news bulletins is a rarity for sporting events, in the past, Steve Waugh chasing a memorable 100 at the SCG in 2003 saw the news pushed back, as did Michael Clarke when he took three wickets in the final over to secure a win against India in 2008. Dylan Alcott’s final match at the Australian Open also pushed back the nightly 6pm bulletin.
