How The Women's World Cup Works: A Guide For Everyone

In many ways, the Women’s World Cup is a lot like its male counterpart. In many ways, it isn’t. So with the tournament set to arrive this summer in France, we thought we’d explain how the Women's World Cup works in 2019.

The men’s World Cup has been around since 1930, but the women’s World Cup didn’t start until 1991. The men’s World Cup has 32 teams, the women’s just 24. The U.S. sucks at the men’s World Cup; the U.S. dominates at the Women’s World Cup.

When Is The Champions League Group Stage Draw? Here's The Latest

The Champions League draw 2022-23 date is set for Thursday, Aug. 25, and we're close to knowing the 32 qualified teams that'll be drawn into eight groups of four. The group stage draw takes place in Istanbul, Turkey (also the location of the final) at 12 p.m. ET with English-language coverage provided by CBS Sports on Paramount+ and Spanish on Univision and TUDN.

Americans Abroad: 3 Players Ready For Qatar And 2 Who Look Lost

Opening week of the 2022-23 season is in the books, and by the time next weekend's action gets under way we'll be less than 100 days from the start of the World Cup in Qatar. Every performance truly matters now.

USMNT manager Gregg Berhalter has built a solid core of players over the qualifying cycle that'll comprise a majority of the 26-player squad, but there are still fierce competitions raging and open places for players who go on a tear through the first couple months of the season.

The ‘Next Iniesta’ Joins LA Galaxy From Barcelona On Three-Year Deal

Multiples sources have now confirmed that the Riqui Puig LA Galaxy contract has been agreed to, with the 23-year-old joining from Barcelona on a free transfer despite still having one year left on his contract at the Camp Nou.

Barça manager Xavi told Puig back in May that he wasn't part of the club's midfield plans for the new campaign, and after being left off the team's preseason tour of the United States, the "next Iniesta" has signed a three-year deal ahead of the MLS transfer window closing Thursday.

England Finds Dramatic Winner In Extra Time To Claim European Championship

Willed on by a record European Championship final crowd (men's or women's) of 87,192 inside Wembley, a tired and vulnerable England overcame Germany's late equalizer and found a 110th-minute winner in extra time to earn the nation a first major international trophy since the 1966 World Cup.

Football has finally come home thanks to goals from Ella Toone and Chloe Kelly, although it took something of a charmed performance against a German side that'd never lost a Euro final in eight previous appearances.

What’s A Xogg? Pre-MLS Franchise Built With Briefcases Of Cash, The Mob And A Victoria’s Secret CEO

It all started with a throwaway line: "If anyone knows what a Xogg is, please get in contact with me," I wrote in an article about the best names of defunct American soccer teams back in April.

I pondered the absurdity of the Columbus Xoggz — a name without meaning that still captures the imagination of a soccer writer who wasn't even alive when the team played.

Lambeau Field Records Largest U.S. Soccer Crowd Of 2022 For Man City Vs. Bayern

Processions across the Midwest came to a rest at Wisconsin’s most hallowed ground on Saturday night. Fans of Germany’s Bayern Munich and England’s Manchester City packed into Lambeau Field to watch the first-ever soccer match played at the home of the Green Bay Packers.

As thousands of spectators arrived, streams of fans in sky blue and bright red paraded through the small town with the behemoth that is Lambeau Field lying in their sights. For many who see soccer as their religion, this was about to be their evening service.
