“It is a great honour that the China Post today released this special stamp to commemorate the FIFA Women’s World Cup returning to its cradle as it’s maiden edition took place here in China back in 1991.

I would like to thank China Post and the designer Wang Hong for this great visual element and their commitment to women’s football,” said Wowari Makudi, chairman of the Committee for Women’s Football and the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
