From Tuesday through to November 4, FIFA will hold virtual workshops with representatives from candidate Host Cities Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Launceston, Auckland, Hamilton, Christchurch, Dunedin, and Wellington.
The virtual workshops will provide a forum for the candidate Host Cities and Stadiums to learn more about the venue selection process from FIFA and the host member associations – Football Federation Australia (FFA) and New Zealand Football (NZF).
Each candidate Host City will also have the opportunity to present an update on their plans, which will be followed by an interactive Q&A session where operational aspects will be discussed.
Following the conclusion of the virtual workshops and in line with FIFA’s policy to follow the recommendations and guidance from health authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic, visits to all candidate cities will be organised when it is safe to do so.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will be the first FIFA World Cup – men’s or women’s – to be co-hosted by two Confederations, as well as the first FIFA Women’s World Cup to feature 32 teams.
