    Australia and New Zealand to host 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup

    Australia and New Zealand to host 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup-12394886-3x2-xlarge-jpg

    Australia and New Zealand have been successful in their historic joint bid to host the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.


    Key points:
    • The joint Australia-New Zealand bid won 22 of the 35 votes from the FIFA Council
    • The trans-Tasman bid was favourite to win after being awarded a strong capability score
    • Sydney's Stadium Australia is expected to host the final


    The trans-Tasman bid beat out that of Colombia by 22 votes to 13 at the FIFA Council meeting in Zurich early this morning.

    The tournament will be the first co-confederation-hosted FIFA World Cup (Australia, being part of the Asian football confederation and New Zealand a member of the Oceanic branch), as well as the first FIFA Women's World Cup to be held in the Asia-Pacific region.

    There were 4 contenders.

    Brazil pulled out, then Japan.

    Europe, including England/GB voted as a block for Colombia

    Especially if they swap jerseys after the game.
