FIFA has revealed the bold and exciting brand identity that will define the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™. Based on a unique visual approach, the identity aims to unite and inspire people around the power of women’s football and especially the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The brand identity and logo include landscape images of the hosts, as well as the colors that distinguish them. Thus we find sketches of forests, lands, mountains, cities, and stretches of water. One of the main elements of the design is a circular pattern of 32 squares of all colors. This was not chosen at random, far from, as it illustrates the increase in the number of participating teams and addresses a graphic element that is widespread in the two countries’ indigenous cultures.
The idea primarily symbolizes the convergence of the best teams in the world, but it also symbolizes the projection on the world, through football, of the state of mind and values of the two host countries, particularly from a football point of view.
Commenting on the identity of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, Fatma Samoura, Secretary General of FIFA, said:
“Women’s football continues to grow and transcend greatness! The motto of the competition thus perfectly reflects how much FIFA wants to take women’s football, especially in the hearts and minds of football fans around the world. The brand identity beautifully illustrates the increase in the number of participating teams. From 24 to 32 countries, taking into account the colors and diversity of the different national teams participating in the main competition of women’s football. We can’t wait for it to start.”
The brand identity was revealed at a live event attended by New Zealand Women’s Football Director Sarai Barman, Australian striker Kiah Simon and her New Zealand counterpart Hannah Wilkinson. Broadcast on Optus Sport in Australia and Sky TV in New Zealand, the event saw guests discuss the brand’s range, logo and design, which includes unique designs created in collaboration with local artists.
During the ceremony, Sarai Barman said that she was particularly inspired by the vision presented by the brand:
“The main objective of the FIFA Women’s World Cup is to highlight the best female talent. In Australia and New Zealand, the whole world will be able to notice everything we are trying to achieve for women in football and in society.
It is a movement and everyone should be a part of it. The competition will be an extraordinary showcase for the best players on the planet, the two wonderful hosts and their wonderful cultures. It will be unique, just like the logo. You’ll never see anything like it. Support him! »
In addition to the visuals created for the occasion, a specific musical identity was also revealed during the ceremony. Title lonlinessIt’s the work of composer and producer Kelly Lee Owens, and he’s a real big name in electronic music. While attending the ceremony, Owens explained that she was inspired by the same ideals and values at the origin of the official logo. Beyond Greatness™.
