There is a rumor that Panini is slowly rolling out negotiations for Woman's World Cup 2015 sticker album. 60% of teams have signed and at this point this seams to be possible.

So far there has been no official confirmation from Panini, so we do not know if and when it will be released.

Remember that previous 2011 was quite popular among male and female collectors. And as the years go by, more rare.

Cover below has been provided by Peter Warshope, Panini Group licenensing director and its subject to change.

That facebook page wants a "card collection" (the cover photo has Adrenalyn cards) and I'm sure that won't happen... Now sticker collection seems very possible (and only natural, after the 2011 collection), with that album cover.

But wasn't the 2011 collection only released in Germany? I sincerely hope the collection is released in many more countries.

Correct @dantzig previous album was available in Germany only, but only because they were the hosts. I remember collection being quite popular and saught-after. If I am not wrong Panini printed additional quantities. I am sure that FB group would not mind sticker as well.

Could be cool, only if the rest of teams sign : I don't really imagine an album with 40% of teams with absolutly the same grey/white shirt !

So this year, the album will be released in Canada, for being the hosts, and Germany, for being the former hosts :p

France 98 album was not very far off, with at least 5/6 teams with players on those amazing track suits or whatever they're called... But 40% is still about 10 teams, so I'm sure they'll get much more, if not all.

What about Africa Cup 2015???o_O
There was a 2010 album, but it seems to me it was a major flop... And they don't even take a chance with an Asian Cup either, even though half the world is asian ;) Europe and South America dominate football world, so their tournaments are the ones still sellable.

1 month ago noone knew if the Africa Cup will take place, so...
True, I didn't even remember there would be an Africa Cup until I saw news that some players wouldn't be available in January for their club teams.

The African Nation Cup had to be organized by Morroco but the country canceled the event in december due to Ebola threat. The African Football Confederation has excluded the Moroccan team and gave the organization to Equatorial Guinea only 3 weeks before the start of the competition.

About Africa Cup, there was a rumour about album until was in Morocco. I think they have stopped idea with all mess due to Ebola. I think you can print an album if it has a good market in the area of the tournament. Africa in general is not a good market for stickers (of course WC South Africa was something different!), I think only north Africa can be good.

About Female WC 2015 if I find complete set at Panini I'll see. I missed 2011 (i have only empty album) and I'm not able to spend big amount for a female world cup :)

Anyway 2015 is the year of Copa America with at least 2 albums (Panini and Navarrete), i'm just waiting for that!

Great news. Peter Warsop, Panini Group Licensing Director confirmed on his Twitter account that the World Cup 2015 Panini album for female WC held in Canada is going to be released.

"Panini confirmed a 48 page sticker album for the Women's World Cup. Will attempt to launch in key qualifying Nations."

EDIT : More information from Peter Warsop :
"Album will contain 431 stickers. Pages on all 24 teams plus sections on Venues, Stadiums and Roll of honour."

Right, "will attempt"... My forecast: Canada and Germany to receive the collection..........

Great news. Will certainly be present in France, one of the 3 best teams in the world
........ And maybe France. Could also be released in other countries where Panini has influence, such as Brazil, England or Spain... But no, no more than those 3 countries.

Panini, I dare you to make me being wrong about this! Minimum 8 countries!
