On July 21st, the biggest women’s sporting event in UK history is set to take over the streets of London. Formidable teams from around the world will be competing for the trophy in a series of high-paced matches, played out over fifteen intense days. Who will you be cheering for?
It’s only right that England should be hosting the World Cup of such a crucially English sport. Hockey has been played in ancient civilizations around the world, but it was in 19th century England that the sport finally became organized and internationally competitive.
The modern Women’s World Cup has taken place every four years since 1974. The Netherlands, Germany, and Australia have historically dominated the tournament, however, Argentina has made a strong showing in recent years, and this winner of this year’s trophy is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure; every team will be playing at the top of their game.
