Oprah has always been a supporter of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team. For this year’s highly anticipated FIFA World Cup, she took that love even further—by lending her voice to a short promo video celebrating the team.
Soccer, especially the U.S. Women’s Team, is a sport Oprah has long cheered on. Back in 2019, she shared how proud she was of the team (with her own personalized jersey, of course), when they won their second consecutive FIFA Women’s World Cup title.
The highly anticipated 2023 competition kicked off on July 20 and runs for a month. When the U.S. team’s first match against Vietnam took place on July 21, Oprah’s narration helped usher in the start of the game.

Minutes before the aforementioned match began, FOX Sports tweeted a link to the video, which starts with a powerful statement from Oprah: “What you earn when you lift yourself to the top of the world is pretty priceless. And when you know just how much it takes to win this trophy, it’s amazing what you can picture.”
Meanwhile, the video is showing a carousel of inspiring shots of the U.S. team—from veteran Megan Rapinoe, who recently announced her impending retirement, to other superstars like Alex Morgan and Kelley O’Hara. “This is the best trophy in the world,” says Morgan.
Oprah’s narration continues: “Now a team, blending legends with young stars, come together, sharing one unprecedented goal: Returning to the top of the world for a third straight time.”
She finishes by reveling in the excitement. “Driven by history, propelled by possibility, it truly is amazing what you can picture when your imagination is stoked by opportunity.”
