“Stadium Australia was originally planned to only host tournament matches, but given the significant interest in match tickets, we have decided to move to a larger venue,” FIFA explained. Sydney Football Stadium and Stadium Australia are both located in Sydney, Australia, so tourists are unlikely to experience any inconvenience.
With the decision, FIFA expects to draw more spectators to the opening day of the Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup. “FIFA’s mission is to organize the biggest and best Women’s World Cup in history this year,” said FIFA Secretary-General Fatma Samura.
Australia will play Ireland in the first group match on July 20 at 8pm local time. The official opening game is the first leg of the group stage between New Zealand and Norway, which will be held at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand, an hour earlier on the same day. Eden Park has 48,000 seats, and if 10,000 spectators are mobilized for the first match between Australia and New Zealand, about 130,000 people will attend the opening day.
