“As for overseas countries, I know what we are capable of and hopefully they will see the benefits of being in the country’s capital. It’s something we really need to showcase to the world. We have a lot to offer here. “

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

However, according to the AsOne bid, 54 team proposal-based camps are included in both Australia and New Zealand. This is the first time that FIFA has included a base camp opportunity in a FIFA Women’s World Cup.

According to the bid, “A basecamp is a hotel and a training ground, they are matched together, and this is where the teams have the opportunity to base themselves throughout the competition rather than move from city to city.”

Canberra has previously been selected as the base camp during the 2015 AFC Asian Cup for men. The metropolitan area hosted Iraq, North Korea and Qatar during the tournament.

For the time being, the upcoming Matildas matches against Brazil will be held in Sydney. The first takes place on October 23, 2021 at. 19:45 AEDT and the other will be held on October 26, 2021 at. 20.00 AEDT. Both matches will be held at Commbank Stadium, formally Bankwest Stadium, in Western Sydney.

Football Australia announced that tickets for the match will go on sale on Monday, October 11, 2021 at. 14.00 AEDT. Only fans from the Greater Sydney region are eligible to participate with ticket holders aged 16 and over who must be fully vaccinated.

A possible two other Matildas matches at home against the USA at the end of November and the home football match in the Socceroos on 11 November 2021 can also be held in Sydney.
