Women’s European Football Championship 2022: Who are the commentators and experts?
ARD sports are commented by Bernd Schmelzer and sports journalist Christina Graf. The former Sky reporter is making her debut at the Women’s European Football Championship. Graf will also be deployed at this year’s Men’s World Cup in Qatar – making her the first woman to commentate live for ARD at a World Cup game.
ARD Moderator will be Klaus Luffen. He is assisted by ARD expert Nia Kunzer, who played for the German national team until 2006 and has been part of the ARD expert team ever since. Born in Botswana, the UNICEF ambassador is now involved in charity football projects around the world.

ZDF’s reporting team, on the other hand, comes with a nine-man squad that could almost pass for a small soccer team in terms of size.
Broadcasts on Classic TV will be taken over by commentators Claudia Neumann and Norbert Galeske, while Oliver Schmidt and Gary Papont will commentate on the games in the live stream.
Moderator Sven Voss reports from ZDF Sports Studio as sports journalist Katja Streso shows footage from the German women’s team quarter-final in Brentford, London. Two ZDF reporters Lena Gesting and Franziska Müllers conduct interviews at the locations.
Former soccer player Kathryn Lehmann is to analyze sports as a ZDF expert. The sportswoman not only won the UEFA Women’s Cup in soccer, but also won a bronze medal as a professional ice hockey player in the national team at the 2012 World Cup.
How exciting is the Women’s European Football Championship?
According to a recent YouGov survey, more than half of Germans do not follow the Women’s European Football Championship in the media. A total of 58 percent of respondents do not want to tune in to games, while 27 percent want to watch at least some of the games, the German Press Agency reported.
According to the survey results, the interest of male audience is more than that of female audience. While 48 percent of all men surveyed don’t want to tune in, 67 percent of women do. Only four percent of the latter group prefer to watch all German sports.
How high the ratings will ultimately be cannot be predicted at this time. However, it is certain that media coverage of women’s football has increased in recent years.
