Commentators in football make the game much more interesting. Of course, most of the football commentators are men. However, there are a few female commentators in the game. So, we’ll let you some of the best female football commentators.
1. Emma Hayes
Hayes is one of the best female commentators. She’s one of the few that has the temerity to actually talk about football tactics during a football match instead of just harping on performance.
Her background as a Football manager may have contributed positively to her sound tactical knowledge.
Hayes is also one of the best female soccer coaches and she manages Chelsea Women and she was crowned the best FIFA women’s coach of 2021.
Apart from being a football manager, Hayes works as a pundit and commentator for ITV. Hayes became well known for her commentating skills at the EURO 2020.
2. Jacqui Oatley
Jacqui Oatley is one of the most experienced female football commentators in the UK. She has been commentating since 2007.
Oatley, who works as a Sky Sports Commentator, is the first female soccer commentator in the UK. She’s one of the few females who are into football commentating.
3. Alex Scott
Alex Scott is an ex-footballer who played for Arsenal Women as a Rightback.
Although she works as a pundit, Scott is sometimes a commentator.
Many football fans are thrilled with Scott’s in-depth analysis during commentary. No wonder EA Sports chose her to be one of the commentators for the FIFA 22 game.
Scott will become the first woman to feature as a commentary on the soccer game.
4. Eni Eluko
Eniola Aluko also known as Eni Aluko is one of the best female football commentators. Although she can be controversial as a pundit, fans no doubt love her commentaries.
Aluko is an ex-footballer raised by Nigerian parents in the UK. She currently works as Sporting Director at Angel City FC in the US.
5. Alicia Ferguson
Alicia Ferguson is an Australian ex-footballer who now works as a commentator, pundit, and TV presenter.
After the tournament, she earned a lot of positive reviews that helped and propelled her for further success.
Final Thought on Female Football Commentators
Men’s football is much more prominet that women’s football. So, it is easier for male exfootballers to retire and get famous as a fotball commentator. It’s not so straighforward for women in football.
Despite the domination of men in the football commentating business, these women listed here are arguably the most popular among their gender.
Hopefully, we’ll see more female football commentators in the future.
