    August press release from ESPN:

    ESPN-U will televise twelve U-20 women's world cup matches in August.
    Tournament runs from Aug. 19 - Sept. 08, so there will be more than 12 when you include the knockout round in early September. Also, it doesn't say yet, but it's assumed that all matches (all 32 matches) will be available on ESPN-3. The 2012 U-20 women's world cup had all 32 matches available live and on-demand on ESPN-3.

    --------------------------------------
    "Twelve FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup games on ESPNU (teams TBA), including doubleheaders at 4:45 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. on August 18, 19, 25, 26 and 31 and single games at 7:45 a.m. on August 21 and 22."

    Yes, 2010 is what I meant.

    In fact, this article below says that all 2008 matches were available on ESPN-3 as well.
    I didn't have ESPN-3 back then from what I can recall, and I don't even remember that being advertised that all the matches were on ESPN-3 back then in 2008. But whatever.

    Here's the link to the broadcast schedule for the upcoming U-20 women's world cup.
    At least 17 matches will be televised in total (including all USA matches), but only one of the semifinals will be broadcast? (I think both will be broadcast when it's all said and done). If not, ESPN-3 should still have it.
