FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 kicking goals!
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Volunteer Program was launched at King George Square in Brisbane on Friday 4 November, with Federal Sport Minister the Hon. Anika Wells MP leading the announcement alongside FIFA and Football Australia.
FIFA will engage a significant volunteer workforce across all nine host cities in Australia and New Zealand to assist at FIFA Fan Festival locations, stadiums, training sites, hotels, transport hubs, airports, and within the cities.
FIFA has officially launched tickets for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, with individual match tickets now available. Brisbane has eight huge games scheduled between 22 July and 19 August 2023, including a Matildas match on 27 July 2023. Tickets are available at FIFA.com/tickets.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 continued to kick goals with the Tournament Draw taking place in Auckland, New Zealand, on Saturday 25 October 2022. Brisbane is confirmed to host some of the world’s most prolific football nations in the Group stage including England, France, Brazil, Germany, Republic of Ireland, Korea Republic, Nigeria, and the Matildas.
The newest member of the FIFA family was announced on 19 October 2022 – Tazuni! The Official Mascot for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is a football-loving teenage penguin whose name is a fusion of her home (the Tasman Sea) and ‘unity’, a key value of next year’s tournament.
Brisbane also welcomed delegates from France and Nigeria who landed in Brisbane recently for an inspection of Brisbane Stadium. France take on Brazil in Brisbane on 29 July 2023, while Nigeria play the Matildas on 27 July 2023 before playing the Republic of Ireland on 31 July 2023.
