Women's World Cup 2023

We've landed it and Adelaide is on the list of venues! It will be a fantastic event and really boost for football in the country.

It will be interesting to see how this effects funding for the W-League, particularly corporate sponsorship and broadcasting.

Amazing!! We really should be hosting stuff like this far more often! I have no doubt we'll nail it and Australia will be considered for many more FIFA events.

Excellent news!

WC coming to Oz!

Could we win it on home soil?
Why not!?!

One aspect of this that will be very welcome will be the corporate investment in the women's game over the next three years. Companies getting on the band-wagon will be very welcome over a period that is likely to be very lean for most sports seeking corporate sponsorship and investment.

The ACT Govt has said Canberra pulled out as a host because they required 3 month exclusive access to Canberra stadium. Given that grounds like Hindmarsh are involved, I assume this means the A-League isn't moving to winter any time soon then.

There would just be a hiatus over the international window. That is what most apex leagues that run a calendar year season do.

Just one or possibly two. Alternate grounds would be used during the exclusion period when it overlaps. I've often though Glenelg oval would be a decent little alternate venue, I think it's the smallest ground in the SANFL. Throw in a regional game or two and you'd be through the overlap in no time.
