The organizing committee for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in Jordan later this year has launched a campaign to boost fans’ interest.
The tournament will kick off in Amman on September 30 and with big stadiums to be filled, the ‘You are our Number 12’ campaign has been kick started to arouse interest.
The drive highlights the key role to be played by the fans as 16 countries from across the world head to Jordan for one of world football’s premier events.
“We will focus our efforts on Jordanian audiences,” said Eng. Salah Al Sabra, Chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC). “The fans are key to holding a truly successful tournament and we want to encourage families to come and support these games.”
LOC CEO Samar Nassar added: “This campaign stems from our conviction that every citizen in Jordan has a responsibility to rally around this event. We can all come together to provide a warm welcome to our visitors from across the world. Player Number 12 is an invitation to all Jordanians to play their part.”
The next key milestone is the tournament’s official draw taking place on May 30 at Al Hussein Cultural Centre.
