“This is a weighty worldwide rivalry that truly puts Australia and New Zealand in the centre of world football for a month. These competitions go beyond sports and truly unite the Australian community, as we saw in 2022.

“The CommBank Matildas are one of our two iconic national teams and one of Australia’s most adored sporting organisations, and Football Australia enthusiastically supported this decision.  It will make sure that more people can now watch the CommBank Matildas’ FIFA Women’s World Cup debut game.”

The final result is expected to boost the effect and visibility of women’s football in Australia and the competition.

It is the result of a thorough evaluation of the competition and operational consequences, as well as a thorough engagement process with key stakeholders.

According to FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura,

“FIFA’s mission is to organise the biggest and best Women’s World Cup in history this year, and fans, those who bring colour, passion, and atmosphere to Stadiums will be such an integral part of the tournament’s success.”

“With this in mind, we have made a decision that will allow more than 100,000 fans to attend the first gameday, giving them additional chances to interact with the FIFA Women’s World Cup as a month of football we will never forget begins.”

Stadium Australia, the location of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Final, also holds the record for the largest single-game attendance of the CommBank Matildas with 36,109 spectators watching Australia take on the United States in November 2021. This July, the CommBank Matildas ticket demand is expected to put that record in jeopardy.

“We want this game to set the tone for the remainder of the competition, and it will be a fantastic start for the CommBank Matildas at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. We view it as a terrific opportunity for Australia to present itself to a worldwide football audience, and we invite all team supporters and football enthusiasts to attend for a great day, Johnson said.”

And advanced to the semifinals of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 will take on Vera Pauw’s squad. They will also participate in the World Cup this summer.

It is wonderful that we will get to play in front of our supporters in Tallaght Stadium before travelling to Australia for the World Cup, according to Pauw. We need to test ourselves against a top-notch opponent in order to get ready for the World Cup. So I’d want to thank everyone at the FAI who helped schedule this game.

France, one of the best teams in the world, will present us with the right kind of challenge. There is still a lot of hard effort being put into our World Cup preparations. And we have some great games coming up. We are thrilled to be going back to Tallaght Stadium. Because we have made so many memories there.

Republic of Ireland vs France:

“Having a season package for our home games in 2023 is also fantastic news. We are excited to play in front of our supporters in some big games since this is yet another important step in the growth of women’s and girls’ football in Ireland.”

“We are delighted to confirm this home game for the Ireland Women’s National Team against an opponent who is among the best in women’s football right now,” FAI CEO Jonathan Hill said in response to the game’s announcement.

“We looked into hosting this game in Aviva Stadium. However, it was unavailable due to the planned redevelopment of the surface. For what will be the final game, we are now trying to sell out Tallaght Stadium. The perfect way to send the Ireland team off to the World Cup.”

In conclusion

After talking with senior players on the team, the Irish women’s football team decided against changing the colour of their shorts from white to a darker hue. The choice was made just one day after the England women’s team decided to switch to dark blue shorts. Because players expressed worries about playing while on their period.

How they spoke

“The Football Association of Ireland can confirm that, following discussions with the Ireland Women’s National Team players, the team will wear the traditional green jersey, white shorts, and green socks as part of the international competition,” a spokeswoman for the FAI said.

“The FAI discussed the possibility of changing the colour of the shorts with the senior leadership group within the squad and with management, but the players felt that sticking with white shorts was the preferred option given the supply of protective knickers.”

Before this summer’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Many other women’s sports teams made the decision to switch their shorts, including England and New Zealand. The shift was made by other GAA teams as well. With Kerry among other inter-county teams adopting black shorts.
