Ready to welcome the world #AsOne!
The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand 2023™ promises to be an historic event on multiple levels.
The June 2020 announcement by FIFA President Gianni Infantino that Australia and New Zealand will play host to the world’s biggest women’s sporting event, means that the 2023 edition will be a tournament of firsts:
- the first in the Southern Hemisphere
- the first to be co-hosted by two confederations (AFC and OFC)

Playing for the Matildas in Australia will be the highlight of my career and an opportunity to inspire girls, both in Australia and New Zealand, and all over the world to play football. We have seen great progress in the women’s game and Australia-New Zealand will take the game to a whole new level.”
