FIFA Women's World Cup 2011

The women's World Cup has never been as popular as the men's but this year the committee really stepped up media promotion, such that, even though I'm late, I heard about the results after it ended. Apparently the Japan vs USA final match was amazing and I'm going to watch it later tonight myself. This got me to thinking though: Is the footage of past World Cup games archived anywhere? Does FIFA sell dvds? I think they'd make a tidy profit doing that but I've never seen the option on their website. The footage isn't just discarded is it? Seems like such a waste if the only recourse I have would be to torrent or download someone's personal recording. Anyone know the truth?
