Exactly two months from today, the wait for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ will be over. To commemorate the day and build anticipation for the biggest and best Women’s World Cup yet, FIFA are officially launching our Team Reporters’ Twitter accounts.
These 24 experts will offer behind-the-scenes content that can’t be found anywhere else, utilising their exclusive access to the squads as they document each team’s expedition around France across all our digital platforms. From English to Dutch and Portuguese to Thai, 13 languages will be used across the 24 Twitter accounts, bringing fans around the world even closer to the action. Not only will the Team Reporters cover the tournament on social media, but also with live blogs for every match – a first for the Women’s World Cup.
Our Team Reporters are comprised of 16 women and eight men embedded in the thick of the action, dedicated to peeling back the curtain for their followers.
Watching the growth of women’s football over the past 15 years, and with an undeniable momentum building, there is an excitement that France 2019 will catapult the women’s game to another level.
The landscape is slowly changing positively. With Chile making their debut at the Women’s World Cup, many girls will see that if they love football it will be possible for them to make a career in it.
It’s what World Cup dreams are made of: teams and players from countries like Jamaica have defied the odds and claimed a place on the biggest stage. It will serve as a beacon of hope, encouragement and empowerment for females in developing countries.
