The FSF Podcast – The Women’s Game

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Last week we recorded the pilot episode of the FSF Podcast, at the Crown and Anchor in Covent Garden, and along with the main discussion on Blatter, corruption and all things Fifa (which you can listen to here), we also focussed on the women’s game, and the ongoing Women’s World Cup.

Hosted by Lynsey Hooper, the evening featured contributions from FSF chief exec Kevin Miles, Diversity and Campaigns Manager Anwar Uddin, football blogger Laura Jones, John Browne of Man City LGBT fans group Canal Street Blues, as well as the audience of assembled football fans.

In this second mini-podcast we look at women’s football – fans’ attitudes to it, the upcoming World Cup, and the future of clubs in the Women’s Super League. 

You can listen to the podcast in the player below, or click the download button below the Soundcloud logo to save it to your audio device of choice. We hope you enjoy it.
