The Women’s FIFA World Cup this past summer in Australia brought the entire football universe together for one purpose – cheering on the incredibly talented women’s footballers! From the ever-dominant United States Women’s National Team, to the Olympic Champion Canadians, and of course The Matildas, women’s soccer is on the rise and that tournament showed it. Fans wanted more, and luckily women’s football is an all-year fixture, so there is always a chance to watch players like Sam Kerr, Alex Morgan and more!
Just a few weeks ago, the National Women’s Soccer League in the United States finished out their season in front of record-breaking crowds. Over 25,000 fans were in attendance in San Diego to watch the NY/NJ Gotham beat OL Reign 2-1 to win the championship, with an average over over 800,000 viewers on television. It also marked the end of two illustrious careers, with Ali Krieger and Megan Rapinoe facing each other in the championship game. Unfortunately Rapinoe had to exit the game in the third minute due to a non-contact achilles injury, but both players got a well-deserved goodbye celebration.
Women’s Super League Players
If you’re in search of more women’s football to watch, the Women’s Super League in England is in full swing, with ton of your favourite World Cup players featured! Sam Kerr of the Australian Matildas plays for Chelsea FC, along with Canadians Jessie Fleming and Ashley Lawrence.

World Cup favourite Mary Fowler of the Matildas plays for Manchester City along with fellow Matilda Alanna Kennedy, as well as England’s Laura Coombs, Alex Greenwood, Lauren Hemp, Chloe Kelly, Esme Morgan, and Ellie Roebuck.
While most of the USWNT opts to play in their home country for the quickly growing NWSL, the Women’s Super League features an incredible amount of international talent. Plus, if you already have a favorite Premier League team, it’s easy to pick a WSL team, since they are all just the women’s side of your favorite clubs.
With the talent Chelsea FC has, it’s no surprise they have dominated women’s football over the past few seasons. Not only are they currently in first place in the WSL with a record of six wins, zero losses, and one draw (6-0-1), they have won five of the last six WSL Championships, and the last three FA Cups. This has been helped in part by the absolute star power of Australia’s Sam Kerr, who started playing for the club in 2020. Since signing with Chelsea FC, Kerr has scored 82 goals for the club.
The WSL Standings are as follows:
- Chelsea (6-0-1)
