Stacey Pope was interviewed by BBC Newcastle, Star Radio North East and Heart Radio and discussed her research on female sports fans. Stacey said: "Football is traditionally a male dominated space but the World Cup can open up opportunities for women to become involved and this can in turn perhaps lead to an interest in football as fans. If there is a successful men's team this can especially prompt an upsurge of interest in football amongst women, for example, there is evidence that suggests many women in England have become involved in football following successful tournaments such as 1966 and 1990".
