Visa will collaborate with UEFA for the 2021 Women’s European Championships in the United Kingdom and the annual Women’s Champions League beginning in 2019.

Meanwhile, as sponsor of CAF, Visa will be the payment service provider at all the venues and will be the official partner of the player escort program.

Also, from December 10, Visa cardholders will have access to an exclusive presale for FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 tickets.
