Canberra hopes for 2022 Matildas games – FTBL | The Home of Football in Australia – The Women’s Game

“As far as the overseas countries go, I know what we’re capable of and I hope they see the benefits of being in the nation’s capital. It’s something we really need to show the world. . We have a lot to offer here.”

The capital region was not in the initial bid to host the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup matches, with Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide ultimately being selected as host cities for the chosen matches in Australia.

However, according to the AsOne bid, fifty-four base camps offered by the team were included in both Australia and New Zealand. This is the first time that FIFA has included a base camp option in a FIFA Women’s World Cup.

According to the offer, “A base camp is a hotel and a training site, they are twinned, and this is where teams have the flexibility to base themselves throughout the competition, rather than moving from city to city. “

Canberra has already been selected as a base camp for the 2015 AFC Men’s Asian Cup. The capital region hosted Iraq, North Korea and Qatar during the tournament.

For now, the Matildas’ next games against Brazil will be in Sydney. The first will take place on October 23, 2021 at 7:45 p.m. AEDT and the second will take place on October 26, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. AEDT. Both games will be played at Commbank Stadium, formerly Bankwest Stadium, in Sydney’s west.

Football Australia has announced that tickets for the match will start going on sale on Monday, October 11, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. AEDT. Only fans in the Greater Sydney area are eligible, with ticket holders aged 16 and over requiring full immunization.

Two more Matildas home games against the United States in late November and Socceroos’ home World Cup qualifier on November 11, 2021 could also take place in Sydney.
