Updated August 26th, 2023.
The 2023 Women’s World Cup soccer tournament is here, and I’ve made an iCal-format Women’s World Cup tournament schedule which you can add to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac with just a couple of taps. Includes dates, times, teams, and TV stations. Updated with scores as games are completed (in the description, not in the summary, so as not to spoil things for people who aren’t watching the games live).
If you’re using Apple’s Calendar app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, use the green button below.
The calendar also works with Google Calendar. If you’re a Google Calendar user, use the blue button below. (Note: do it from your desktop computer.)
If you want to see the scores in the summaries of the games– that is, if you want to see something like the picture on the left rather than the picture on the right– use the buttons with the red borders.
If you’re using Apple’s Calendar app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, use the green button with the red border below.
Google Calendar version (do it from your desktop computer)– blue button, red border:
Whether you choose the spoiler version or the non-spoiler version, the listings for the games have little soccer ball icons in front, as shown below, so you can quickly pick out the soccer games from amongst your other appointments.
Pretty handy to have the games integrated with your regular Calendar app (in their own calendar/category of course). You don’t have to do anything to get updates– they’ll come in automatically.
If you tap a game you’ll see details, including where the game is being played, and a link to the tournament standings. After the game, you’ll see the score in there, so don’t look if you don’t want to know.
Here’s how it looks on a Mac, macOS 13.4 (Ventura):

When you’re asked whether you want to subscribe to the calendar, the answer is YES, you want to subscribe. That way you get updates when I change something, which I will, since the entire knockout round is unknown at this time. Also, if you subscribe, you will get updates next year, and the next year, and so on, assuming the tournament continues. Subscribing is free, and you don’t have to give me your email address or anything like that. And of course you can unsubscribe if you want. It would be cool if you shared this blog post on your various social media platforms. That would help me out.
Game times should be correct for your current time zone, unless you’ve done something special in your Date and Time preferences. The times listed are kickoff times, not pre-game show times. We (in the USA) are going to have to get up early most days.
Subscribe to the calendar now and just wait for me to update things as more info becomes available. Your calendar app will always show the latest info. Enjoy. If you aren’t seeing updates, you can refresh the calendar manually (in the Apple Calendar app on a Mac, choose “Refresh” from the View menu, or use Command-R; on an iPhone, go into the Calendar app, tap “Calendars,” then pull down and release as you would when refreshing Mail or other apps).
Note: when you subscribe to a calendar you get to specify how often the calendar should update. With a calendar like this one, refreshing every hour is the way to go. You can change the settings at anytime by clicking on the calendar name in the list of calendars in the macOS Calendar app, then going to Edit/Info (or Command-I, or Control-clicking on the name of the calendar and choosing Get Info). You’ll see a box like this:

Change the Auto-refresh to “Every hour” and you’re all set.
On an iPhone it’s different: go to Settings, then Calendar, then Accounts, then “Fetch New Data.” If you set it to “Push” new data comes in automatically, for every calendar on your iPhone.
Note: I made this calendar because I couldn’t find one online. Yes, I could find a web page with the Women’s World Cup schedule, but no, I couldn’t find a Women’s World Cup calendar that I could view in my iPhone’s Calendar app. It’s way better to see the games listed right there with your other Calendar appointments than to be flipping back and forth between the Calendar app and a listing on a web page. I couldn’t find what I wanted elsewhere– so I made it myself.
Note 2: if you find a mistake in the calendar let me know. All you have to do is send me an email and I’ll make the correction.
