Where to watch the Matildas Olympic Qualifier games

Where to watch the Matildas now that the World Cup is done

If you're looking to watch the Matildas vs Uzbekistan final round of qualifying matches, we've laid out all the details at the link.


Australia is now a bonafide women's footballing nation, hosting the FIFA Women's World Cup back in August, which transformed the landscape of both football and women's sport irrevocably in just a few short weeks. At the helm of this transformation have been our national team the Matildas, a squad of 20 women who have redefined what true sports excellence in this country looks like.

But now that the World Cup has come to a close, the question on the lips of every hungry new women's football fan seems to be: where can I keep watching and supporting now that it's done?

With the next FIFA Women's World Cup a painstaking four years away (and sadly, no longer on home turf), we've rounded up some of the best ways to get your women's football fix, and to continue watching your favourite Matildas players over the coming months...
