Jacob’s Creek joins a group of sponsors who share our mission to hold the best FIFA Women’s World Cup ever in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand this year, and we can’t wait to bring many of their ideas and initiatives to life to engage even more people with the tournament.”
Eric Thomson, Jacob’s Creek, and Pernod Ricard Winemakers Global Marketing Director said, “Great wine brings people together just as great sporting events do, and at Jacob’s Creek we can’t wait to be part of the passion and excitement that the largest women’s sporting event in the world will bring. That’s why we knew we had to be the first wine to team up with the FIFA Women’s World Cup.”
He further added, “Sport is so often the realm of other alcohol categories but we’re not afraid to break conventions at Jacob’s Creek and felt that the Women’s World Cup opened up new moments for people to enjoy our wines.”
