The bespoke design of the Official Poster reflects the cultural creed of this tournament: ensuring a level playing field for women’s football and empowerment through football for girls, women and society in general.

With a woman’s face as the central feature, set against the background of a football, the work of art encapsulates the essence of this eighth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup:

• The shards of bright yellow light in the poster reflect light and illumination – the key elements of the creative concept for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 – captured by the tournament’s Official Slogan: Dare to Shine™.
• Her hair is slightly windswept in a nod to female empowerment sweeping the globe.
• Her expression is determined and her gaze ambitious, echoing the skills of each of the 24 teams competing and their desire to become FIFA Women’s World Cup champions.

The Official Poster was unveiled beside those of each of the nine Host Cities at the Galerie Celal in Paris and will be available for public viewing on Saturday and Sunday, 9 and 10 March from 13:00 to 18:00 CET.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 will take place from 7 June to 7 July and feature 24 teams contesting 52 matches in nine Host Cities: Grenoble, Le Havre, Lyon, Montpellier, Nice, Paris, Reims, Rennes and Valenciennes.
