From 7 June to 7 July, France hosts one month of competition, 52 matches and 24 teams, all battling it out in 9 stadiums around the country. One year after the French men’s team secured victory, football is attracting increasing numbers of female spectators. Similarly, the 8th FIFA Women’s World CupTM will certainly draw in many new supporters.
The semi-finals are set to take place on 2 and 3 July, with the final on 7 July in Lyon. As the Official Timekeeper of the 2019 edition of the tournament, Hublot is showing its support for women’s football. The ambitious watch manufacturer demonstrates its conviction and enthusiasm for women’s football, despite the sport having existed for some one hundred years.
Since the French men’s team won in Russia, the number of female French Football Federation members has risen by 15%, an incredible amount in less than a year.
We are enthusiastically supporting the sport because we share fundamental values.
To dare is often to believe in future successes.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup is set to change the image of solely male fans. It will certainly attract women to the terraces and, who knows, perhaps result in future players just as talented as our professional footballer friends.
CEO of HUBLOT
