The Philippine women’s national football team made history when it became the first-ever Filipino team to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. And thanks to VISA, Filipinos can score an all-expense-paid trip to New Zealand to watch the Philippines fight for its place on the global stage.
From July 20 to August 20, the best female footballers in the world will gather in Australia and New Zealand to battle for the top spot. The Philippine team is currently under Group A and has three group matches lined up to qualify for the round of sixteen.
The first will see the Philippines duke it out with Switzerland on July 21 at Dunedin Stadium, New Zealand. The second will happen on July 25 at Wellington Regional Stadium, New Zealand, against New Zealand. And the third is scheduled for July 30 at Eden Park, New Zealand, against Norway.
The Philippines is one of only two Southeast Asian teams to make it to the World Cup, the other being Vietnam, making this moment even more historic. It's only fitting that Visa, as the worldwide sponsor of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, plans to commemorate this moment for Filipino customers with an epic raffle.
Football fans have until June 5 to enter Visa’s raffle and score a free trip for two—worth $10,000—to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in New Zealand.
