Mundial Femenino Santiago“Soccer occupies the first place of the most played games in the world, followed by more than a quarter of gamers, that will place us in places where possibly they had never heard of us, this is a huge opportunity that I know our mayor will take advantage of,” he assured.

Paulino said that “the Women’s World Cup will be held from October 16 to November 3 of this year, it will be about 19 days and will be sharing the venue with Santo Domingo, but the greatness of the event is that it not only brings the players, but with them come from several days before, the coaches and also soccer fans. There will be many days of high presence of foreigners who will require, in many cases, staff who speak several languages, we will have a great opportunity, but also a great challenge”.

For the Santiago Tourism Cluster, the celebration of the Women’s World Cup will mark a before and after, not only for the sport, but also for tourism in the city.
