FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour on its final leg!

After four months on its global tour, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Original Trophy is on its way to the two host nations of the ninth edition of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup – Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia.

The Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia leg of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Trophy Tour is delivered by Team Global Express and will visit all nine Host Cities, starting in Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau on Thursday, June 1.

The official Tour kicked off in February in Melbourne/Naarm, before making its first global stop in Tokyo, Japan. It has since travelled thousands of miles across oceans and continents, spreading enthusiasm and anticipation for the world’s largest women’s sporting event.

The Trophy is visiting all 32 qualified nations, making it the largest FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour to date. The Trophy will now stay in the two host countries until the world champions are crowned on Sunday, August 20.

Speaking about the FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy, FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura said: “The FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour has created a sense of unity throughout its journey, showcasing the power of sport in bringing people together.”

“Women and girls have been inspired by the arrival of the Trophy in their home cities, and now finally, it is going to arrive in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia. The host nations will do a fantastic job in continuing to spread the Trophy Tour’s theme of #GoingBeyond and celebrating the participation of women and girls in our beautiful game.”

The Trophy will make a five-day stop in Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau in Aotearoa New Zealand before winging its way over the Tasman Sea to Sydney/Gadigal, Australia. From there it will travel to Melbourne/Naarm, Hamilton/Kirikiriroa, Dunedin/Ōtepoti, Brisbane/Meaanjin, Adelaide/Tarntanya, and Perth/Boorloo, before a visit to Wellington/Te Whanganui-a-Tara rounds out the tour.

Importantly, the Trophy will also make several regional visits throughout the host county tour, ensuring that communities outside of major metropolitan centres also have an opportunity to be inspired and excited by the Trophy and tournament.

FIFA Legends and other special guests will appear at various Trophy Tour stops in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia, as part of the Trophy Tour’s campaign #GoingBeyond, with a mission to inspire, coach and spotlight future female football talent of all levels and backgrounds.

As the Trophy has travelled the globe, more women and girls continue to participate in Skills Drills, a football skills social media challenge being led by Female Football Freestyle World Champion Lia Lewis, in collaboration with FIFA.

Trophy Tour stops in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia:

Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau June 1-5
Sydney/Gadigal June 8-12
Melbourne/Naarm June 14-16
