Hyundai, which has been FIFA’s official mobility partner for over two decades, will continue to provide transportation for the movement of teams, officials and staff involved in FIFA events, in addition to showcasing driving technology and future mobility services from the group’s subsidiaries, Boston Dynamics and Supernal.
The renewed contract will see Hyundai provide mobility services at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in July and the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
“As we embark on this renewed collaboration, we look forward to showcasing the capabilities of our mobility solutions and partner brands on a global scale. Together with FIFA, we aim to inspire and unite fans around the world through the power of football.”
FIFA President Gianni Infantino also praised the continued partnership.
“We’re thrilled to continue our longstanding partnerships with Hyundai and Kia,” Infantino said. “Over the years, they have consistently demonstrated their commitment to supporting FIFA, and we value their dedication to enhancing the overall experience at our tournaments.
“As we enter this new era together, we’re excited about the prospects that lie ahead with the addition of Boston Dynamics and Supernal. Together, we’ll continue to work on uniting the world through football.”
Boston Dynamics is a Hyundai group affiliate dealing with robotics, while Supernal is an air mobility unit. Both subsidiaries’ core aim is to advance modes of mobility.
