Trans-Tasman hosts for 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup
The awarding of joint hosting rights for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is a landmark decision for women’s sport in our region Prime Ministers Scott Morrison and Jacinda Ardern said.
For the first time in history, Australians and New Zealanders will be able to experience a tier one football tournament on home soil.
The 2023 event will be the largest, and no doubt the best, Women’s World Cup that has ever been staged.
The event, which will be held between 10 July and 20 August 2023, will provide a near $500 million boost to economic activity for host countries, a significant jobs boost for host cities, and an opportunity for tourist regions in both countries to capitalise on new visitations.
Australia and New Zealand are world leaders when it comes to co-hosting major events with a track record that includes the 2017 Rugby League World Cup and the 2015 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.
