The Women’s World Cup kicks off on Thursday, July 19 with a matchup between Norway and co-host country New Zealand. Games are taking place in Australia and New Zealand, where local time ranges from 12 to 16 hours ahead of DC. In response, the DC Council passed legislation that allows participating bars to stay open 24/7 from July 20 to August 20. Some places are planning to stay open late, and other spots are offering specials for the tournament. Looking to cheer on your team? Here’s where to watch the Women’s World Cup.
