From June 7th to July 7th, the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be held in France. 24 teams, 52 games, will compete in nine stadiums in France.
One year after the French men’s football championship, football has attracted more and more female audiences, and the eighth women’s football World Cup will certainly attract many new supporters. It is reported that the women’s football World Cup semi-finals are scheduled on July 2 and 3, and the finals will be held in Lyon on July 7. As the official timekeeper for the 2019 event, Hublot is demonstrating the brand’s faith, passion and support for women’s football.
Hublot Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said: ‘In less than a year since the French men’s football championship in Russia, the number of women’s football registered by the French Football Association has increased by 15%. We are enthusiastic in supporting this sport as sharing the basics Values-Fearless, believe in future success. The FIFA Women’s World Cup will change the impression of only male fans and attract women to the stadium. Who knows, maybe future players will be born from them and they will be Hublot professional football players. Like close friends, talented. ‘
At present, Hublot has three close friends of female professional football players. They are former French international player and Paris Saint-Germain left back LaureBoulleau; American international star and Orlando Pride forward AlexMorgan; and young Norwegian international player and Lyon forward AdaHegerberg (her sister AndrineHegerberg plays for Paris Saint-Germain).
Surprisingly, the first women’s football match in France dates back to the First World War. Two years later, the Women’s Football Championship was founded in 1919. Fifty years later, the French Football Association was formally established in 1970. Today, the French Football Association has 2.2 million registered members, of which 165,000 are female members (vs. 54,000 six months ago). There is no doubt that the FIFA Women’s World Cup will play a facilitator role for the media, women and the public. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
