That's the state of women's sports. A lot of talk and support but no action.

CBC has stepped up to show Canada's matches at the CONCACAF Championship, which triples as world cup and olympic qualifying ON TAPE DELAY!

Qatar's World Cup stadiums are set to be alcohol-free, with beer sales outside arenas only allowed before and after some matches, a source with knowledge of plans for the tournament said.

This year's World Cup is the first to be held in a Muslim country with strict controls on alcohol, presenting unique challenges for organisers of an event often associated with beer drinking fans and sponsored by global brewing brands.

This is going to go over well.

I wonder how ticket sales are going? Iím sure Canadian supporters would be excited to go regardless, but WC regulars? Iím taking German, English, Brazilian etc fans might just be meh about going.

You cant drink in league games in England and Brazil. When they hosted euro 2020 and world cup 2014 respectively it was a bit of a mess with alcohol there.

Alcohol free soccer is a good idea.

Well you can drink in the stadiums in England for sure. You can't take drinks to your seats, but there's no issue with drinking in the stadium overall.

Well, this is something that I must admit I never really thought of. Glad they're addressing it openly and honestly at the Women's Euros.

Quote:
The English Football Association (FA) has released a statement acknowledging that players "will be taken into consideration" for future kit designs after concerns from England's squad about wearing white while on their period.

Speaking after England's win, Bayern Munich's Georgia Stanway added: "It's difficult, because we associate England with white. The home kit is unbelievable, it looks really nice. I think that's something that we can speak about as a full squad, as a group of girls."

With women's football being accepted more and more into the mainstream, the game -- just like the wider body of women's sports -- has been slowly breaking down the last remaining taboo: menstruation.

She added: "I think you'll be hard pressed to find any females who haven't had an experience when they've felt the dread when it's your time of the month and you've got to go play in white shorts knowing that you don't feel as comfortable in your own skin at that time.

"Ultimately when you've got to go out there and perform it can affect the performance because you become extremely self-conscious."

Why is this suddenly an issue? At Wimbledon too. The USWNT had worn white the majority of the time since 1991. They have a dark jersey but I never remember them wearing it.
