There will be a first-time World Cup winner in 2023. Spain will meet England in the Women’s World Cup final with both squads hoping to bring home their first World Cup. 

England is expected to be the favorite in the game, having had a dominant tournament. They won Group D, survived Nigeria in the round of 16 and won the last two games without their new star, Lauren James, who was suspended for stomping on a player’s butt. She will back in uniform on Sunday, when England looks to win its second major tournament following its win in the European Championship last summer. England beat Spain in the quarterfinals of that tournament by a score of 2-1.

Spain has yet to win a major tournament, but has looked strong in this World Cup. They placed second in Group C, but dominated Switzerland in the round of 16. They beat the Netherlands 2-1 in extra time in the quarterfinals and secured their place in the final by besting Sweden in the semifinals by the same score. 

Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch Spain vs. England, no matter where you are in the world.

How to watch the FIFA Women’s World Cup final 2023 online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view the final locally, you may need a different way to watch this match — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Australia, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the 2023 Women’s World Cup final using a VPN

  • With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming the Women’s World Cup final live may vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
