Want to watch the Spain-England final of the 2023 Women’s World Cup from Spain? Here are the Spanish TV channels and big screens being set up outdoors across Spain's cities that will show the match for free.


Spain play England in the final of the 2023 Women's World Cup at 12pm (midday) Spanish time on Sunday August 20th.

It's a highly anticipated match as it's the first time that either national side has reached the final stage of the Women's World Cup. 

This comes after England's Lionesses beat Australia 3-1 in Wednesday's semi-final, and La Roja inched past Sweden 2-1 in extra time in the other semi-final on Tuesday.

The last time the two teams met in an official competition, England beat Spain 2-1 in the quarter-finals of the 2022 Euros. 

If you are in Spain on Sunday August 20th and want to watch the Women's World Cup final on television, all you will need to do is tune into Spain's public broadcaster RTVE, who will show the game live on their main channel La 1. 

La 1, 'The One' in English, is the first channel on most TV sets and is available regardless of whether you have a digital or terrestrial setup. 

Below is an image of La 1's logo to help you find the channel. 

You will also be able to watch the final live on RTVE's website if you're in Spain, or on the Fifa website


If you'd rather enjoy the excitement outdoors as a spectator in the company of Spaniards and most likely a few England supporters, you can expect pretty much all bars with a TV in Spain to have the match on. 

There will also be big screens in Madrid's WiZink Center, Barcelona's Centro Deportivo Municipal Olímpics Vall d'Hebron and the main squares (plaza mayor) of Gijón, Burgos, Segovia, Pontevedra and A Coruña (María Pita Square).

The third-place playoff match between Sweden and Australia will also be available to watch for free on La 1, RTVE's online platform and their sports channel Teledeporte. The match is at 10am Spanish time on Saturday August 19th.
