ModSquad Celebrates the Women’s World Cup


ModSquad has World Cup fever! Continuing the fun we had last year, we joined in the excitement of the recent Women’s World Cup games with a tournament of our own. People from our Operations Centers in Sacramento, California; Austin, Texas; and Derry, Northern Ireland, as well as those working remotely around the globe, split into teams and made their picks in ModSquad’s 2019 pool.

As the world’s finest female players astounded viewers with impressive athletic feats (and impressive athletic feet!), we cheered on our selected teams, with our eyes on a singular goal: to win prizes including the coveted ModSquad Women’s World Cup trophy. Out on the field, the team from the United States dominated the event, as many pundits had predicted, persevering throughout the competition to win their second consecutive trophy and fourth overall. We’re sure that those in our U.S.-based Operations Centers and tournament players who chose the U.S. team were pleased with the outcome. But many other teams had avid ModSquad supporters, both in the States and elsewhere.

Women’s World Cup fans at our Austin Operations Center show their support.

On our downtime, we tune into the day’s match. (Us and a billion other people!)

Whether they’re amazingly astute students of football (or soccer, depending on their location) or they’re just really, really lucky, these are the winners of our World Cup pools. Join us in congratulating the following folks:
