Australia to bid for 2023 women's soccer world cup

Post by bazza »

I would assume that stadium capacity requirements would not be as high as for the men's tournament
I also doubt that Qatar would be bidding since they probably don't let women play sport

Let the speculation of new stadiums and upgrades begin...

Is a good event to bid for. And at least the Matilda's have a chance :)

Will be interesting to see if they base the bid on one state, a few cities, the east coast, or country-wide.

Well - we were successful! Below is the list of stadiums to be used for the tournament. Only thing that has changed since the bid was submitted is the ANZ Stadium redevelopment won't go ahead. Upside it'll hold 13,500 more than it was going to be, downside is it's not a world-class stadium, unless they do some work on it.

ANZ Stadium – Sydney
Capacity: 83,500

Sydney Football Stadium – Sydney
Capacity: 42,512

AAMI Park – Melbourne
Capacity: 30,052

Suncorp Stadium – Brisbane
Capacity: 52,263

HBF Park – Perth
Capacity: 22,225

Coopers Stadium – Adelaide
Capacity: 18,435

McDonald Jones Stadium – Newcastle
