100 Days Out, Fox Sports Unveils Women’s World Cup Campaign, On-Air Activation

By Barry Janoff

February 27, 2019: The FIFA Women’s World Cup begins in France in 100 days, and Fox Sports has marked the occasion by unveiling a multi-platform campaign, programming and other activation that will lead to and then encompass the month-long tournament.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup is June 7-July 7, with Fox as the official FIFA World Cup U.S. English-language broadcast rights-holder, via a deal that currently runs through 2026.

NBC Sports’ Telemundo Deportes is the exclusive Spanish-language home for the tournament in the U.S.

Anchoring Fox Sport’s 100-day marketing is a TV spot, “Remember Us (100 Days To Build A Champion),” featuring Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapine, Mallory Pugh, Becky Sauerbrunn and other members of the U.S. Women’s National Team, which will defend their title won at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

The full two-minute spot, as well as shorter 15-, 30- and 60-second versions, will air across Fox, FS1, FS2, Fox News and its Regional Sports Networks.

In addition, all on-air elements will include customized 100-days branding under its umbrella “All Eyes On Us” campaign.

Support also includes digital, social media and on-air elements during Fox Sports, Fox broadcasts and sports events across the Fox platform.

FIFA top-tier global partners expected to have significant airtime during the tournament include adidas, Coca-Cola, Wanda, Hyundai-Kia Motors, Qatar Airways and Visa.

“In 100 days, one of the biggest moments in global sports will take center stage on Fox Sports,” David Neal, executive producer, for FIFA World Cup on Fox and vp-production, Fox Sports, said via the network.

“Our programming schedule reflects the scale of the FIFA Women’s World Cup and our commitment to it following our unprecedented coverage of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.”

Fox Sports said it would offer live coverage on its TV and digital platforms from Paris Place du Trocadéro from Friday, June 7 through Sunday, July 7.

Veteran broadcaster JP Dellacamera — who has covered 14 FIFA World Cups (nine men’s, five women’s) on TV and radio — and Aly Wagner, former U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder and two-time Olympic gold medalist, will lead Fox Sports broadcast team for the 2019 tournament.

All 52 matches will air live, including 22 on broadcast TV — the most in FIFA Women’s World Cup history — and 27 on FS1.

All matches will be live-streamed on the Fox Sports app and FoxSports.com.

Fox Sports said it would have more than 800 hours of coverage across linear and digital, including two daily studio shows: FIFA Women’s World Cup Live and FIFA Women’s World Cup Today.

Following an extensive 2018 FIFA Men’s World Cup collaboration, Fox Sports and Twitter will expand coverage for FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019.

FIFA Women’s World Cup NOW, live from Paris every match day, will air exclusively on Twitter in the U.S.

During live matches, Fox Sports' Twitter feeds will post every tournament goal moments after each is scored.

NBC Sports’ Telemundo Deportes will present all 52 matches live on Telemundo, Universo and the Telemundo Deportes and NBC Sports apps.

Telemundo Deportes also said it would offer the most multimedia FIFA Women’s World Cup coverage in Spanish-language media history, with matches on linear TV, streaming of all matches and extensive coverage on digital and social media.

In the Fox Sports spot, “All Eyes On Us,” we see action from the 2015 U.S. Women’s National Team title run, interspersed with members of the 2019 team offering, “100 days to outwork everyone. 100 days to sacrifice.

“Champions are never satisfied. So we’ve reloaded. Gotten strong. Faster. We’ve got the talent . . . and support from the best fans in the world. 100 days until we inspire the next generation . . . again.

“100 days until all eyes are on us. In 100 days, stand with us as we fight to keep what’s ours.”
