About The Show

The biggest moments in sports history have stories behind them which have never been told. In 1999, Brandi Chastain kicked the winning goal for the U.S. at the Women’s World Cup. Her victory celebration in a sports bra made for one of the most iconic photos in recent memory. But how did we get to a moment where a women’s sport became a national obsession? To answer that question, we have to go back. In Season 1, soccer journalist Grant Wahl traces that ’99 Women’s World Cup victory back to the origins of the U.S. women’s national team and the first Women’s World Cup in 1991. Featuring superstars like Mia Hamm, Michelle Akers and Julie Foudy; former coach, Anson Dorrance; and even ex-FIFA President, Sepp Blatter.
