Proman, experts in recruitment and workforce management, sign up as National Supporter of FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019

FIFA and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) have added Proman to their line-up of National Supporters for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™. Proman, a key player in the temporary labour market, is now the Official Recruiter in France for the eight edition of this FIFA tournament, taking place in nine Host Cities from 7 June to 7 July.

As the largest familial and independent recruiter for the temporary labour market in Europe, Proman, founded in France, has over 380 branches worldwide. The group’s core values – trust, responsiveness and loyalty – resonate strongly within the beautiful game and create a natural connection between the event and this National Supporter.

Thanks to the partnership, Proman will benefit from a unique platform for their brand exposure both before and during the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™, as well as a bespoke ticketing and hospitality package and use of selected FIFA marks and footage.

Noël Le Graët, President of the LOC and the French Football Association: “We are very pleased to welcome Proman as a National Supporter of next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, the first to be held in France and one that is sure to be the women’s sports event in 2019. We are looking forward to a lively and popular tournament that will be open to all. Proman is a highly dynamic international group with a strong local network. Their commitment to improving the place of women in the workplace makes perfect sense and chimes with the values that we are championing through the organisation of this competition and the development of women’s football.”

Philippe Le Floc’h, FIFA Chief Commercial Officer: “I am delighted to welcome Proman as the Official Recruiter and fourth National Supporter of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Following the launch of ticket sales in September, and ahead of the draw in December, the deal is another sign of the continuing momentum towards next year’s tournament. FIFA is looking forward to working with Proman and is relying on their support to help deliver a great experience for the fans in France in 2019.”

Roland Gomez, Proman CEO: “Proman’s 1,800 employees are proud of this symbolic partnership, which reflects the values of sport and conviviality that are so cherished by our group. We are particularly pleased to be promoting elite women’s sport in connection with what is sure to be a feast of football. The FIFA Women’s World Cup is an opportunity for Proman to use its recruitment expertise for the benefit of sport in France and around the world. This latest tournament to be held in France will provide thousands of employment opportunities across the country.”
