WOMEN'S WORLD CUP 2023
Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour heads to New Zealand and Australia
After four months on its global tour, the Women’s World Cup 2023 Original Trophy is on its way to the two host nations.
After travelling the world, the Women’s World Cup 2023 trophy is on its way New Zealand and Australia with the original trophy set to visit all nine host cities starting in Auckland (NZ).
The official tour commenced last February before making its first global stop in Tokyo, Japan. It has since travelled thousands of miles across oceans and continents as anticipation builds ahead of the biggest ever Women’s World Cup which kicks off on 20 July and ends a month later.
The trophy visited all 32 qualified nations and will now stay in the two host countries until the world champions are crowned on Sunday, 20 August.
Speaking about the trophy tour, 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.”
