Christen Press and Tobin Heath are hosting their own Women’s World Cup show with re—inc, the lifestyle brand the two founded with Megan Rapinoe and Meghan Klingenberg in 2019.

“Nobody can speak about the World Cup better than us,” Heath said as part of the announcement for “The RE-CAP Show: World Cup Edition” on Tuesday.

The show will premiere on July 20 and run throughout the World Cup, ending with the final on August 20. Press and Heath are two-time World Cup champions, having represented the USWNT at the 2015 and 2019 tournaments.

“This is the first time we’ll be watching the World Cup in over a decade,” Heath said. “We know we’re not alone with how we feel about the way that people talk about women’s sports. We want to be part of the solution.”

According to Heath, the show will serve to define “gal culture at its finest.” Guest stars will also represent the “strongest perspectives and minds that the game has to offer,” she said.

The show will air on all social media platforms, including YouTube, TikTok and Instagram. Fans can also tune in on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

“Having been there many times before ourselves, Tobin and I are gonna bring to you what it’s like to play in a World Cup, what’s really happening behind the scenes, all the good, juicy bits,” Press said. “This is our narrative, our culture. And we get to tell it our way.”

Heath, 35, and Press, 34, are both missing the World Cup as they recover from knee injuries. Press revealed on Monday that she is set to have a fourth surgery after tearing her ACL last June. Heath, meanwhile, hasn’t played in a game since undergoing season-ending knee surgery last September.
