A Must Do in Paris during the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup


The FIFA Football museum presented by Hyundai  is quite the unique experience. Hyundai, in partnership with the FIFA World Football Museum, created a masterpiece of a pop-up museum focused on the history and culture of women’s football called “The Women’s Game”. It’s main objective is to depict the true passion that is seen day in and day out in the history of women’s football. 

The temporary exhibition on the history of women's football can be visited at the Jardin Nelson Mandela in Les Halles, Paris, from 15 June until 7 July 2019. Entry to the exhibition is free and it is open every day from 10:00 to 20:00. 

I loved walking around and learning about the sport I played and live for everyday of my life. As you walk around you can find artifacts and memorabilia dating back from the late 1800s when women’s football began. Check out these boots! - 




The museum highlights the struggle for women to find acceptance in the machismo cultures. Through the years women were banned to play, except for while men were away at war during WW1 and WW2. Little by little advocates broke through and were able to pave the road to where we are now. From a sold out stadium in Azteca in 1971... to soccer balls created specially for women’s tournaments... to stolen World Cup trophies! Yes- STOLEN trophies to this day not found... The Women’s Game museum is a must see!
