The biggest-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup™ Trophy Tour is set to make a stop in the Philippines this March 2023.
The tour will see the official FIFA Women’s World Cup™ Original Trophy visit country on 01-02 March 2023 with key activities being lined up during the tour to inspire people of all ages by ‘Going Beyond’ and to celebrate the rocketing popularity of the women’s game.

Edwin Gastanes. “It is a unique moment for everyone to see the trophy which is only seen during the official draw and the final match of the Women’s World Cup.”
