Women's World Cup Fans Won't Let the FIFA Scandal Spoil Their Party

The "FIFA Fan Zone" here in the de facto capital of the 2015 Women's World Cup sprang up earlier this month in a fenced-off parking lot near BC Place Stadium, where the tournament's final match will crown a champion on July 5.
Banners hype the crowning event of women's soccer. Skill challenges and food trucks entice fans. Matches are broadcast on giant screens set up under a temporary roof. FIFA branding — often neon, always relentlessly positive — is everywhere.
