The 2022 FIFA World Cup is officially underway in Qatar. But while many top-flight men’s leagues worldwide will pause for the occasion, women’s club football is carrying on at full throttle.
The next several weeks will feature many critical matchups in women’s football. It’ll be business as usual for Europe’s major domestic leagues and cup competitions—including the FA Women’s Super League, Division 1 Féminine, and Frauen-Bundesliga. The UEFA Women’s Champions League will also have four matchdays during the men’s World Cup window.
With so much football to celebrate this holiday season, we’ve compiled a list of prominent women’s football games to watch as we close out 2022.
