Qatar Airways, the Official Partner and Official Airline of FIFA, unveiled stunning new TVC campaign celebrating the most exciting moment yet to come in women’s team sports: the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019, taking place from June 7 – July 7 in cities throughout France.

The innovative new film features a mother telling her daughter a wonderful bedtime story. It is a flight of imagination, in which she describes an amazing new land where women’s football reigns, where players rule and fans from many nations gather to cheer. The film features one of the most famous faces from the world of football, Brazilian football superstar Neymar, celebrating with fellow football fans.

By the film’s end, we realise that mother and daughter are in fact onboard a Qatar Airways aircraft flying to the very destination she has been describing: a magical land, where the story of women’s football comes alive.

Their relationship is a genuine anchor for the emotion and optimism surrounding the biggest moment yet in women’s team sports: the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019. The look and feel is fantasy-like, and the story is epic and expressive, highlighting the dreams of both players and fans alike.

As an airline, we believe in the power of sports to unite people, and we look forward to bringing fans together in France this summer to take part in the most exciting event yet in women’s sports.”
