Visa Unveils FIFA Women’s '19 Cup Push, ‘One Moment Can Change the Game’

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

May 2, 2019:
Visa has unveiled a multi-platform global campaign for the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France to support its presence as the official payment services partner of FIFA.

Activation includes what Visa called its “largest onsite investment in women’s football,” anchored by 1,600 upgraded POS terminals in nine official venues.

Visa said the campaign, “One Moment Can Change the Game,” “amplifies the meaningful moments women are creating on and off the pitch, whether it be inspiring athletic greatness on the field, influencing business outcomes in the boardroom or driving economic impact at home and across industries.”

“One Moment” showcases a series of vignettes, inspired by the true stories of female football players, including Team Visa athletes Lucy Bronze (Great Britain), Eugenie Le Sommer (France), Kim Little (Scotland), Dzsenifer Maroszan (Germany) and Nadia Nadim (Denmark).

“Women’s football is at a tipping point,” Lynne Biggar, chief marketing and communications officer, Visa Inc., said via the company.

“This year has seen a global wave of support around women’s empowerment and the excitement is spreading with the sold-out opening and final matches for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019,” scheduled for July 7-Aug. 7.

Biggar said that Visa’s long-time partnership with the FIFA Women's World Cup “is more than a sponsorship, it is about being a catalyst for change and elevating women’s football.”

The global campaign will be activated in 33 markets, feature a combination of hero and social films and span broadcast TV, digital, social, print and OOH.

In France, all POS terminals will be enabled with Visa sensory branding, signifying a completed transaction through custom Visa sound and animation.

Commemorative contactless Visa prepaid cards and payment-enabled wristbands will be available at Visa customer service booths in all official venues.

Across its sponsorship portfolio, Visa "curates exclusive, unforgettable experiences for consumers and clients from around the world."

At this year’s tournament, Visa plans to host more than 700 consumers from 28 different countries and more than 65 clients from across Europe and North America. Among the experiences, people will have exclusive access to the centre circle and team warm-ups prior to official matches.

“Women’s football is at a tipping point. This year has seen a global wave of support around women’s empowerment and the excitement is spreading."

According to Sarai Bareman, chief women's football officer, FIFA, “The FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 is going to be the biggest women’s sporting event of the year and we are delighted that Visa can join us this summer for what is going to be the best FIFA Women’s World Cup ever.

“It is vital for the growth of women’s football that we have partners like Visa heavily involved in our showpiece event, and I am pleased to support the launch of their global campaign that centers on women’s empowerment.”
