FIFA delegation to visit WWC 2023 venues

The preparation for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is heating up and the FIFA delegations will begin their visit to Australia and New Zealand to review the stadiums that will host the matches.

After completing the mandatory quarantine period in the host countries, a FIFA delegation, including experts from key operational areas, will visit the nine host cities and ten stadiums in Australia and New Zealand, as well as inspect other potential tournament venues across the two co-hosts.

During the two-week visit, FIFA representatives will also meet with key stakeholders and representatives in Australia and New Zealand, including host Member Associations and local authorities, to discuss preparations and key operational matters for the tournament.

Rhiannon Martin, Head of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Project – FIFA told OFC news they want to witness the first-hand on-going preparations and progress for the tournament.

“Following an extensive number of virtual workshops and collaboration with host cities and many stakeholders across Australia and New Zealand since the tournament was awarded last year, this visit will be an important step in the overall tournament preparations as well as our aim to organise an incredible FIFA Women’s World Cup with Australia and New Zealand in 2023.”

Last month, the FIFA Council approved the establishment of a new FIFA subsidiary to manage the organisation of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 in Australia and New Zealand. 

Building on the success of the record-breaking 2019 event, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is the ninth edition of the tournament and will be the first to feature 32 teams, as unanimously decided by the FIFA Council. 

It will take place in Australia and New Zealand from July 20 to August 20, 2023.
