Perth will host five games at the 2023 Women’s World Cup following an overnight announcement by FIFA. The world’s governing body confirmed the 64-fixture match schedule for the 32-team tournament co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand between 20th July to 6th August, 2023.
Five group stage games will be played at Perth Rectangular Stadium (aka HBF Park), on Saturday 22nd July (Group D), Wednesday 26th July (Group B), Saturday 29th July (Group F), Tuesday 1st August (Group D) and Thursday 3rd August (Group H).
Football West chief executive James Curtis is delighted to have some of the worlds best footballers playing in Perth. “This is a real cause for celebration and is something the whole of the WA community will get behind,” Curtis commented.
“To have five games across four different groups, with nine teams from across the world playing in our backyard, shows the growth of the world game in WA. With already record level growth of female footballers in WA, this tournament will inspire all parts of the community and ensure a legacy is created for years to come.”
“This is also reward for a lot of people in WA football, government, Football Australia and elsewhere who have put in the hard yards to bring the event to Perth. It’s no secret that there was a possibility we could have missed out altogether – instead, we have five matches involving some of the best teams in the world.”
The 2023 Women’s World Cup will be held in nine cities and ten separate venues across Australia and New Zealand. View the full match schedule for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
