2019 OFFICIAL MASCOT - ETTIE

Ettie is a young chicken with a passion for life and football. She comes from a long line of feathered mascots and is the daughter of Footix, the Official Mascot from the 1998 FIFA World Cup France™. Her strong family connection to the Gallic rooster, who is still a popular national French symbol, makes her a fitting choice as the Official Mascot for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019. Ettie’s name comes from the French word for star, étoile, as she came from the bright star that her father Footix was awarded for the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Footix cast his star far into the night sky so it could shine brightly, and after a few years of travelling through the cosmos it came back to him in the form of his twinkling daughter, Ettie.
