MANILA, Philippines–The trophy that will be handed out to the winner of the Fifa Women’s World Cup will be in Manila for a promotional tour, the Philippine Football Federation announced Wednesday.

A public event at Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City is set on the afternoon of March 1 where the trophy will be shown before football fans and mallgoers in a move to drum up support before the Philippine women’s football team takes part in Fifa’s biggest showpiece in July.


“We are delighted to welcome the FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy in Manila as the excitement continues to build up for the Filipinas’ debut in the most prestigious women’s football tournament in,” said PFF president Nonong Araneta.


It will be the third stop of a busy trophy tour Fifa is holding before the World Cup, starting with Japan this weekend and South Korea on Monday.

Following the Philippine leg that ends March 2, the trophy travels to Vietnam (March 4 to 5), China (March 9 to 11), Morocco (March 20), South Africa (March 22 to 23), Zambia (March 24), Nigeria (March 26), Brazil (March 29 to 30) and Argentina (March 31).

Next up are Colombia (April 3), Costa Rica (April 7), United States (April 10 to 14), Jamaica (April 16), Canada (April 19 to 20), Switzerland (April 29 to May 1), Germany (May 2 to 3) and Denmark (May 4).

The trophy is also heading to Sweden (May 6 to 7), Norway (May 8), Ireland (May 10), England (May 13 to 14), Italy (May 16), The Netherlands (May 18), France (May 20 to 21) and Spain (May 22) before being flown to Australia and New Zealand for tours within the two countries.

The Filipinas will compete for the first time on the global stage, but will be hard-pressed to get results against New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland in Group A.
