The FIFA Women's World Cup trophy was presented at an elementary school in Paris on Tuesday, as part of the trophy's tour around France.

"For us it is important to put it in our city and for the children it is very important because the future of the women’s football in France is with the girls who play football in school but also in clubs," said the director of Local Organising Committee (LOC) in charge of planning the event in France.

Paris will host the opening match of the upcoming Women’s World Cup, as France will face the Republic of Korea on Friday June 7.
