The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ presents a unique opportunity for football in Australia. Not only would hosting this tournament see Australia welcome world class athletes to its shores, it would also allow the nation to continue building foundations aimed at transforming the face of football.
“Hosting a Women's World Cup in Australia would be seen as the next chapter in our long history of the sport. It would be the start of a new era, so the possibilities are limitless. Our future is about professionalism, capturing the imagination of our daughters, providing a clear pathway for their dreams to come true and honouring our past by celebrating the now and being involved in our future.”
Tracie McGovern, former Matildas midfielder
Through its Gender Equality Action Plan, Football Federation Australia will leverage the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ to accelerate growth of the game.
