The Women’s World Cup will be held in Costa Rica in 2022, launching a series of celebrations marking the 'one-year-to-go' milestone.

The International Federation of Association Football, FIFA, celebrated by inaugurating their 2022 emblem. The women’s football icons and young players across Costa Rica, representatives from the Local Organising Committee, local government and U-20 women’s national team gathered at a special ceremony showing solidarity and support to launch the vibrant new Official Emblem and Slogan.

According to FIFA, the new tournament slogan and emblem aim to unite through the power of football and inspire future stars of women’s soccer. They hope to inspire a new generation of women and girls across Costa Rica, the wider region and around the world.

The representative art portrays distinctive red and blue flashes of colour from the Costa Rican flag and the expressiveness of a traditional carreta (folk ox-cart). The iconic new emblem for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2022 also features design elements inspired by Costa Rica’s rich biodiversity and vibrant culture, including fertile football grounds, volcanoes symbolizing the origin of life, coffee beans representing 11 players, alongside exclusive typography inspired by leaves and foliage.

The official tournament slogan "Vamos Juntas" – ( let's go together in English Language) is a statement of sisterhood, sustainability and legacy, a natural calling that fans, players, teams, Costa Rica and the entire global soccer community can use to unite in sharing their collective passion for football and celebrating the future of the game, FIFA said in its statement.

“The FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2022 is the perfect platform for a new generation of football stars to further grow and blossom," Sarai Bareman, FIFA Chief Women’s Football Officer said. "It will be a tournament that will showcase the world’s best upcoming talent in women’s football, many of whom will hope to go on to even greater things in Australia and New Zealand in 2023.”

According to Bareman, the vibrant new Official Emblem and Slogan aim to unite exciting and symbolic elements of Costa Rican culture, while representing the rich natural elements and biodiversity of the country. "We look forward to an exciting tournament, one which will inspire and leave its mark in 2022 and beyond,” she said.

It is expected that in the next few days, the organizers will announce the game schedule.

A video of the Official Emblem and Slogan launch was released by the organizers on the FIFA YouTube channel.
