Two-time World Cup champion Ariane Hingst returns to the FOX Sports set for the network’s on-location studio coverage of the 2019 FIFA World Cup France™. She held the same role in four years ago during the network’s award-winning coverage of the 2015 FIFA World Cup Canada™, providing analysis from FOX Sports’ Vancouver set.
ON THE WORLD STAGE
As the youngest player on Germany’s 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup™ squad, Hingst started each of her team’s matches and scored one goal. She again started every match as Germany won the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup China™, and helped her squad defend its title at the 2007 FIFA World Cup, leading a backline that did not allow a single goal the entire tournament.
Hingst won four consecutive European Championships, in 1997, 2001, 2005 and 2009. On the Olympics stage, she won three straight bronze medals with the German National Team, in 2000, 2004 and 2008. She finished her stellar international career following the 2001 FIFA Women’s World Cup™ with 173 appearances, making her Germany’s third most-capped player at the time.
On the club level, Hingst played for several teams in Germany’s top league, Bundesliga, most notably winning the UEFA Women’s Cup in 2005. She also played in top leagues in Sweden and Australia.
Hingst made her FOX Sports debut in December 2014 for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada™ official draw show. During the 2013 UEFA European Championship, she served as a game analyst for BBC, covering the German National Team and the tournament’s final.
