Women’s Football Weekly will be hosted by Faye Carruthers
The Guardian has launched the Women’s Football Weekly podcast to mark the start of Euro 2022.
Hosted by sports presenter Faye Carruthers, the podcast will be released twice weekly during the competition and feature a round-up and expert analysis of each match, the teams and their players, plus special guests and contributions from the world of women’s football.
The podcast can be found at theguardian.com/audio and through all podcast apps such as Apple, Spotify, and Acast. The Guardian’s coverage of Euro 2022 is sponsored by Visa, which also sponsors the competition itself.
Carruthers said: “I am so excited to be hosting the new Women’s Football Weekly podcast for the Guardian. The UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 will be a fantastic tournament and it is a delight to be guiding listeners through it with a great team of contributors providing comprehensive analysis, laced with fun. Be sure to tune in if you don’t want to miss anything happening in the game.”
Suzanne Wrack, Football Writer at the Guardian, added: “With the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 about to kick off, I think it shows how far this beautiful game has come. I love writing about the game and I’m always delighted when we expand on the variety of ways in which women’s football is covered at the Guardian as it demonstrates its growth and influence. It’s great that listeners, readers and fans know they have a space they can come to for a deep analysis of the women’s game, the players, the issues the game faces and its quirks. Visa’s investment into the women’s game and the Euro tournament is game-changing and it’s great that they are supporting the Guardian’s coverage.”
Imogen Fox, director of advertising at Guardian News & Media, commented: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Visa to share these inspiring stories about local female businesses around the tournament. The Guardian is one of the most culturally relevant, influential and modern media brands in the world and so we know how to tell fantastic brand stories like Visa’s. This campaign uses a multi-channel approach - audio, digital and print - it’s creative and shows the best of what our branded content and sports journalism can do.”
