Tomorrow marks the start of the Women’s World Cup in France, a monumental competition featuring many of the top female athletes in the world. This massive sporting event means something in the world of Munzee as well, as our Coupe du Munzee Specials will begin bouncing around on June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time all the way until July 7 at 23:59 MHQ time to cheer these female athletes on, the Munzee way!
Earn this badge by capturing at least one Coupe du Munzee special!
The Coupe du Munzee specials will hit the map in support of the Women’s World Cup, a competition that allows female football stars to demonstrate their immense athletic talent in a showcasing of some of the most skilled athletes in the world. As you cheer on your home country in the World Cup, be sure to take a moment to recognize the dedication these women have put into their training to make it to such a prestigious level of professional competition!
Unfortunately not all sports give female athletes adequate opportunity to compete on professional levels. Alongside our sponsorship of the InternationElles, a female cycling team that includes our own immeasurably talented Louise, Freeze Tag stands in support of all world athletes. We encourage equality in all professional sports, which is why we are thrilled to support the InternationElles as they demonstrate that female cyclists are every ounce as capable as men. You can support Louise and her team by picking up a Flat Lou from the Freeze Tag Online Store from 10:00 MHQ time on June 8 through 10:00 MHQ time on June 11, with a portion of all Flat Lou proceeds during this sale going towards Freeze Tag’s sponsorship of the InternationElles.
Coupe du Munzee
Ready to learn more about the specials that will be hitting the map in a number of hours?! To honor the 24 teams in the Women’s World Cup, we will have 1 physical icon per team and 11 of each team’s icons bouncing on the map every 6 hours or when captured to represent each player on the field. That means that we will be starting out with 264 specials up for grabs, featuring the following icons and many more!
Though the Coupe du Munzee specials will be on the map until July 7 at 23:59, not all team icons will last the duration of the run. While we will start out with 24 icons, one for each of the 24 teams, these numbers will slowly dwindle as teams fail to advance. With each passing the round the number of icons per team may increase as they remain in the competition. The following schedule will let you know how many icons will remain on the map throughout the World Cup:
- All teams will join the map for the following days:
- June 7 at 00:01 MHQ time through June 22
- 24 team icons (11 bouncers per team)
- Only teams advancing to the Round of 16 will remain on map for the following days:
- June 22-25 (losing teams will be removed during this time period)
- 16 team icons

Badges & Ensembles
Players will be able to earn a badge for capturing one Coupe du Munzee special as well as a variety of other badges as well!
Teams are competing in groups of six, so our Coupe du Munzee specials are also grouped into six Ensembles of team icons, with four teams per ensemble. You will be able to earn a badge for capturing one of each team in an Ensemble, as well as a badge upon your first capture of any Coupe du Munzee special, for a total of seven new badges to earn with these specials.
