If you’re not into watching the Giants right now, then you’re in luck — it’s Women’s World Cup time!!

I know there are an alarming number of soccer fans around here (kidding — enjoy whatever sport you want), so this is just a reminder that although the Women’s World Cup began on Friday, the United States plays for the first time in the tournament at noon today.

And this is also a reminder that SB Nation has coverage if you want to dive deeper. The soccer coverage team has been generating daily content intended to travel all over the network — even through this site.

Historically, this event has not just been popular among soccer fans. Like the Olympics, this event tends to appeal to all sorts of non-traditional sports fans. It is our suspicion that many of your communities will already be interested in and would likely appreciate having someplace to discuss it.

For starters, there’s a Fifa Women’s World Cup Supergroup that’s constantly updated: https://www.sbnation.com/fifa-womens-world-cup.

You can find daily open threads at All For XI and Stars and Stripes FC.

If you’d like to dig a bit deeper, here’s some more links:
