It is now confirmed, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup co-hosts will be Australia and New Zealand.

For the very first time the two countries are co-hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup. It is also the first time that two countries from different FIFA Confederations are hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Australia and New Zealand emerged as the front-runner this month after FIFA released its bid evaluations, scoring the highest overall score of 4.1 out of 5. Japan and Colombia scored 3.9 and 2.8, respectively. The Brazilian Football Association ultimately withdrew its bid before FIFA published its evaluation report. The joint Australia/New Zealand bid received 22 of the 35 votes cast by the FIFA Council during its meeting held by videoconference.

The “Matildas” (formerly known as the Female Socceroos) Australian women’s soccer team and the “Football Ferns” New Zealand women’s soccer team also had some success in the World Cup and the Olympics. Both Australia and New Zealand played in the Asian Confederation before the first-ever Oceania cup was played in 1983. In the mid-2000’s Australia moved back to the AFC confederation from OFC. Both co-host nations of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup have been to three Summer Olympics. They are both set to make their fourth Olympic appearance in the Tokyo Olympics.
