How to discover your ‘Fancestry’ in time for the FIFA Women’s World Cup

Do you want a second team to support at the FIFA Women’s World Cup? Here’s a fun and simple way to help pick one for you.

As the FIFA Women’s World Cup gets closer, organisers have launched ‘Fancestry’, an online quiz that helps identify the team that might match your personality.

It takes a couple of minutes, is a bit of fun and the tool creates a custom-designed football jersey that represents your unique Fancestry.

The jersey features four segments, each depicting the competing nations that represent the users’ Fancestry.

‘How we can welcome all 32 teams to our tournament’

FIFA Women’s World Cup Head of Marketing Kim Anderson believes the tool will enable fans in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as elsewhere around the world, to discover more teams to cheer for.

“We know our fans in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand are among the most welcoming in the world,” Anderson said.

“We’re confident they will fully embrace the Fancestry initiative, so all teams can feel supported while they’re competing thousands of miles away from home.”

This year’s tournament will feature eight debutant teams.

Ms Anderson added that having a vibrant ‘home’ crowd away from home could be a lift for the teams, and further showcase the power of football.

“This tournament is about inclusivity and unity, so using the Fancestry tool to find out which teams fans can align with will bring communities together and create a greater buzz in stadium.”

“Most teams have not travelled to our part of the world before, and by launching Fancestry, our goal is to encourage more supporters to adopt teams so that all 32 nations will feel welcomed and supported while they are here on the world’s biggest sporting stage for women.”
