Brittany, land

of champions?

Some of French women football’s biggest names are originally from Brittany…

…and have been chosen to be ambassadors at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup France 2018


Camille Abily, born in Rennes

  • 183 caps / 37 goals
  • Appeared at two FIFA Women’s World Cup finals
  • Played at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in 2002
It’s great for Brittany to welcome this World Cup, as it’s a land of football. I hope it encourages young girls to play. And I hope as well that some reluctant parents will discover women's football, thanks to this U-20 World Cup

  • Appeared at two Women’s World Cups

It’s cool that Brittany welcome this World Cup, I like very much my land, it’s a land of football, and in women's football, especially. I hope it’s gonna be a nice football fest there and that it will end up with a title for France!

  • 42 caps /2 goals
  • Won the adidas Golden Ball at the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in 2012

It’s the best place to host the World Cup. Just because people in Brittany really love football and women's football. Plus, they are so welcoming there.
