The President and First Lady of Iceland have teamed up with Inspired by Iceland to invite you to join Team Iceland as we count down the days until Iceland’s first ever World Cup appearance! Starting June 16, Iceland is gearing up for its most exciting sports season yet. No matter where you are from, you can show your support and spirit for the Icelandic men’s soccer team by signing up for #TeamIceland, a digital hub to celebrate all things Icelandic. Members of the team will even be entered to win a trip to Iceland in June when the first game kicks off!
Iceland made FIFA history when it became the smallest country to ever qualify for the World Cup with a population of only 340,000 people. Now the team looks forward to traveling to Russia in June to compete in Group D with matches against Argentina, Croatia and Nigeria.
By signing up for Team Iceland, you will receive a personalized digital jersey with your own squad number and unique Icelandic name. Icelanders’ surnames are made up of the first name of their father or mother, combined with ‘dóttir’ for daughter and ‘son’ for son. In the spirit of inclusivity, Team Iceland gives the whole world the chance to support the Nordic nation as they take their place on one of the biggest stages in sports history.
Simply click here to join Team Iceland, get your very own Icelandic name and find out more information on how you can win a trip to the country in June. And be sure to let us know how you’ll celebrate Iceland on the road to the World Cup by tweeting us @IcelandNatural using #TeamIceland!
