The 9th FIFA Women’s World Cup takes place in Australia and New Zealand this Summer, and Netflix will chronicle the journey of the US Women’s Soccer Team and their attempt to win a 5th world cup with a brand new docuseries this Fall.

The women’s game has come a long way since the inaugural FIFA Women’s World Cup in China in 1991. Each year that has passed since the women’s game continues to go from strength to strength with more footballers earning professional contracts, sponsorship deals, live coverage, punditry, and more. Arguably, the nation with some of the biggest influence on women’s soccer has been the United States, which explains their incredible four world cup wins from eight attempts.
