Following the huge success at the FIFA World Cup 2018™, Panini is proud to present its brand new official collection dedicated to the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™. It’s the third edition dedicated to the event – after 2011 and 2015.

History, passion and sharing

The long relationship between Panini and the FIFA World Cup™ can be defined as love at first sight. For nearly 50 years now, Panini has been committed to being the historic reference for the biggest sporting event in the world, first with men’s teams, and more recently with the women’s.

With the same passion, Panini wishes to give the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 the visibility it deserves, through the same fun and social link that fans around the world associate Panini with: sticker collecting, swapping and the thrill of completing their albums.

Nine cities, 24 teams, 480 stickers

A 56-page album with 480 stickers to collect, including 36 special ones in foil! 24 nations will compete to win the FIFA Women’s World Cup, and every country will be represented in the album through 19 unique stickers per team: 17 players, one badge and one team photo.

As well as the dedicated team pages the collection will also include other special features.

These include; a focus on the nine cities that will host the 52 matches of the tournament, the stadiums, and an opportunity to review the different records of the competition: the youngest player, the most successful team, the most rapidly scored goal, as well as the winners of the previous seven tournaments.

The albums first pages are dedicated to exciting and unique elements of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019, including ettie – the Official Mascot ettie™ – , as well as the official event logo and trophy.

In order for fans not to miss any of the excitement, Panini has included the complete match schedule in the album. When will title holders USA play? Who will face UEFA EURO 2017 winners the Netherlands? A glance at these pages is enough to know!
