The official emblem of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Trinidad and Tobago 2010 was unveiled to the world during a gala ceremony in Trinidad and Tobago on September 12, 2009. The ceremony featured elements of the country’s diverse culture, such as steel pan players, tassa groups, fire-breathers, moko jumbies, and other traditional characters. The emblem features an amalgam of the steel pan and the tassa drum, two musical instruments that represent Trinidad and Tobago’s rich cultural heritage.

After this unveiling, FIFA Vice-President Jack Warner delivered the feature address, stating that Trinidad and Tobago will now be a haven for women’s football. He said: “From today and well into the future, this emblem will be associated with the home of women’s football. This emblem will be associated with excellence and brilliance. This emblem is a true representation of Trinidad and Tobago. [. . . ] It represents the cultural diversity of our nation state and significantly symbolizes the unity of all races which we enjoy.”
