AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND ARE SHARING THE HOSTING RIGHTS FOR THIS YEAR’S BIGGEST EVENT IN WOMEN’S SPORT.
It’s a tournament of firsts:
First time the FIFA Women’s World Cup is in the southern hemisphere.
There are 32 teams. Previously only 24 teams went to the last stage of the tournament.
Australia and New Zealand are in two different Football Federations (Asia and Oceania).
Worldwide there are 1.2 billion people watching these games.
It is hoped that a record breaking 1.5 million people will be watching the games locally…
…and that is where you can come in. New Zealand is fortunate enough to have the privilege of hosting the Swiss National Team. Their home base is in Dunedin, where Switzerland plays the Philippines on 21 July (5pm kick-off). On 25 July they play Norway in Hamilton (8pm kick-off). The big game against the host New Zealand is again in Dunedin on Sunday 30 July, kick-off at 7 pm.
The progression in the knockout phase of the Swiss team would mean they play in Auckland or Wellington in the round of 16, same venues for the quarter final and even semi-final is in Auckland. The game for 3rd place and final would then be in Brisbane or Sydney. Overall there are 64 matches in 10 different stadiums (6 in Australia and 4 in NZ).
