How to Stream Women’s FIFA 2023 in Russia

Match TV is streaming the Women’s FIFA WC 2023 in Russia, but it is quite limited in terms of support streaming devices (see below). But if you have a laptop or a desktop and are fine with watching on those rather smaller screens then, you’re in luck as you can watch the matches through a web browser. Match TV also has an app you can find on your IOS or Android mobile device.

In Russia, as far as cable TV goes there is only one channel and no other better options at all. However, if you have a smart TV then that may be a better option for streaming the WC. On a smart TV, you should have access to any content that Match TV has.

Those traveling outside of Russia can find many streaming services that will allow you to watch the WC — although not usually with Russian commentary. In the US, we recommend Fubo because of its exceptional soccer coverage. But Sling TV is an excellent low-cost option.

What Devices Support World Cup Streaming in Russia?

As mentioned before if you have a smart TV, that is a great option for viewing the Women’s WC. You can do so through streaming devices such as an Amazon Fire Tv Stick (Firestick), Chromecast, or Roku device. And, of course, it works in web browsers as well. You can also view the matches from any IOS or Android mobile device as they all come with a web browser.
