Most outlandish FIFA Womens World Cup in history is about to go down in Australia and New Zealand



By Ed Emeanua


The most outlandish Womens World Cup tournament is about to go down with the opening ceremony set to flag off July 20 at Auckland’s Eden Park before New Zealand and Norway take to the turf in the first game.


The event whose official song is aptly titled ‘Do It Again’ is destined to be quite historic, and a befitting setting for the United States to  mark the defense of its title, this time, on the grandest stage of them all, having won two other previous tournaments in 2015 and 2019.


As if to buttress the significance of this event, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. today announced the designation of a Presidential Delegation to New Zealand for the purpose of gracing the Opening Ceremony of the historic event on Thursday in Auckland. Douglas Emhoff, Second Gentleman of the United States, is expected to lead the Presidential entourage to Auckland.


In the US Presidential contingent are: Honorable Tom Udall, U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand and the Independent State of Samoa; The Honorable Emmy Ruiz, Assistant to the President and Director of the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach; Ms. Tina Flournoy, Member, President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition; and Ms. Lorrie Fair, Chief Program Director for the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, Former U.S. Women’s National Team Player, 1999 Women’s World Cup Champion, and Founding Investor, Angel City Football Club.


The edition will be cohosted by Australia and New Zealand from 20 July to 20 August 2023. It will be a historic festival of football and a special event for its arrays of firsts for its organizer-Fédération Internationale de Football (FIFA).



For starters, this edition will be the first female World Cup to be hosted by more than one nation, and also the only FIFA senior World Cup to take place over confederations, since Australia is under the Confederation of Asia, and New Zealand is among the Oceanian alliance.


Also, the event will be the initial instance for the expanded 32 teams format from the erstwhile 24, identical to the feature for the men’s World Cup from 1998 to 2022


FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will be the ninth of the quadrennial international football engagement for women’s national teams under the auspices of FIFA. Get ready for the action.
