The Women's World Cup is underway in New Zealand and Australia and looks to be an incredible tournament so far. Here's how you can watch the action unfold from Norway. 


Fans worldwide have eagerly awaited this year's Women's World Cup following a nail-biting conclusion to last year's European Championships. 

The tournament kicked off with hosts New Zealand beating Norway, looking to bounce back after a disappointing Euros, on July 20th. 

Broadcaster allocation is still up in the air

Many of the group-stage games will be free to air in Norway. However, some games will still require a subscription to Viasport. Subscriptions to Viasport from Viaplay start from 399 kroner per month. 

It's also worth pointing out that the host nations are 6-10 hours ahead of Norway, meaning many matches will be played in the morning or early afternoon. This shouldn't be an issue if you work for a Norwegian firm and have broken up from work for the joint holidays. 

NRK and Viaplay hold the rights. NRK are broadcasting around half the games free to air, while Viaplay will broadcast the championship in its entirety via streaming. It can be expected that any games involving Norway will be selected for coverage on NRK.

Other ways to watch 

Using a VPN to watch games being shown by another broadcaster is another option for viewers. Due to the early starting times of many of the games, not all of the games will be shown in bars due to Norway's strict licensing rules and regulations. None of the free to air broadcasters in Norway is showing a daily highlights package of the Women's World Cup.
