The FIFA Women’s World Cup frenzy has taken hold in Zambia, as the highly coveted trophy made an appearance in the country as part of its global tour.
A delegation from Zurich, including FIFA Trophy Tour Manager Giulia Tirkyilmaz, presented the trophy to officials from the Ministry of Youth, Sport, and Arts, as well as the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president and general secretary.
The event was attended by members of various grassroots organizations involved in women’s football, all of whom are working to build momentum for the upcoming World Cup. Notably, the coach and technical staff of the Copper Queens, Zambia’s national women’s football team, were in attendance, alongside FAZ Women’s representative Colonel Priscilla Katoba.
The public also had the opportunity to view the trophy, which will also visit three other African countries – Morocco, South Africa, and Nigeria – before making its way to the host countries of the upcoming World Cup, Australia and New Zealand.
With 32 countries set to compete in the tournament, which will run from July 20th to August 20th, the FIFA Women’s World Cup promises to be an exciting and highly anticipated event for fans of women’s football around the world.
