The eagerly anticipated ninth edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup is in full swing.
Throughout the next four weeks, a total of 32 teams will engage in fierce competition, battling it out across 64 matches at 10 outstanding venues in both Australia and New Zealand.
Alongside the tournament, the FIFA Museum in Sydney is hosting a pop-up exhibition, titled "Calling the Shots: Faces of Women's Football", which showcases a collection of memorabilia from past editions.
The exhibition stands as a tribute to the inspiring individuals who have profoundly shaped women's football across all its facets, and runs from 20 July to 20 August at the FIFA Fan Festival™ in Tumbalong Park, Sydney.
