The FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy is set to arrive in Sydney this Sunday.
Between 12.00pm and 1.30pm at First Fleet Park next to Circular Quay Wharf.
Football fans will be able to view the handcrafted Trophy up close at a fan event which will include current, former, and future Matildas, as well as Australian football great and FIFA Legends Squad member, Mark Schwarzer.
“There are now less than three months until the start of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019, and the visit of the official Trophy, as well as FIFA representatives including Socceroos legend Mark Schwarzer to our shores will be another milestone in the build up to the tournament,” FFA Chief Executive Officer, David Gallop said.
The official FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy is currently on a two-month global journey that began in Paris in February, and which will conclude in the same city in May.
Already the Trophy has visited France, Jamaica, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, United States of America, Korea Republic, Japan, and China.
Today we’ve been with former China international and FIFA Legend Sun Wen in Shanghai as part of the World Cup Trophy Tour. We are currently on our ninth stop and spent some time with some current and former internationals, as well as youngsters from a local academy. #DareToShine pic.twitter.com/DH6hwGNRMt— FIFA Women's World Cup 🇫🇷 (@FIFAWWC) March 27, 2019
