FIFA has released the match schedule for the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, with Sydney announced as the host of the final.
The tournament — which will run from July 20 to August 6, 2023 — will feature games held in nine different cities and 10 separate venues across the two host nations.
Of a total of 64 games, 35 will be held in Australian venues, while 29 will be held in New Zealand.
Sydney will host 11 matches in total, with Auckland and Wellington hosting nine each, while Brisbane has been scheduled for eight games.
Melbourne has been booked to host just six games in total — the same amount as Dunedin — while Perth, Adelaide and Hamilton have five each.
And the Matildas will play all their games in Australia during the tournament.
The Women’s World Cup will begin in both countries on July 20, with an opening ceremony at Eden Park in Auckland ahead of the first match with the Football Ferns.
In Australia, the Matildas will play their opening match the same day at the new Sydney Football Stadium.
The dates for individual games and the team draw will be released later.
