Round of 16 Means Coupe du Munzee Updates!

The Coupe du Munzee specials have been on the map for two weeks now, which means it’s time for an update! The Coupe du Munzees will officially be changing in quantity on Saturday, June 22 at 00:01 MHQ time based on the advancement of teams in the Women’s World Cup!

Though we started out with 24 icons for each of the 24 teams in the Women’s World Cup, we told you that we’d be removing icons from the map as teams became eliminated in real life. However, we have decided to leave 1 physical icon per team for the 8 eliminated teams on the map. That means if you need a losing team icon to complete a badge, there’s still hope to be had!

While the 8 eliminated teams will have their original quantity of 11 physical icons reduced to 1 each, the 16 advancing teams will see their physical icons increase from 11 to 30. Are these numbers a bit overwhelming? Overall you can look forward to a grand total of 488 Coupe du Munzee specials on the map, for an overall increase of 54 percent in Coupe du Munzee specials! However, it will now become much more challenging to cap eliminated team icons.

The advancing Coupe du Munzee teams, reflecting the results of the Women’s World Cup, are as follows:

  • Germany
  • Nigeria
  • Norway
  • Australia
  • England
  • Cameroon
  • France
  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • USA
  • Sweden
  • Canada
  • Italy
  • China PR
  • Netherlands
  • Japan

That means that the following teams have been eliminated in the Women’s World Cup and reduced to 1 physical icon each:

  • South Korea
  • South Africa
  • Jamaica
  • Scotland
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand
  • Argentina
  • Chile


Remember that though there will be an increase in the number of icons per winning team, as well as overall increase in the amount of specials, not all teams icons will remain abundant for long. Starting on June 27, only the teams advancing to the Quarterfinals will see an increase, while all eliminated teams will be reduced to 1 icon per team.

The special double points days for Flat Friends and German Coupe du Munzee specials will NOT continue on into the Round of 16. However, there are still 7 badges that players can earn along the way.

Capping the Coupe du Munzee specials might not be the easiest feat, but either is being a professional athlete! It’s a great time to use your physical Munzee Magnets, because there will be more specials to be capped by all players starting on Saturday!

Munzee on!
