Bid Champions

Football Federation Australia and New Zealand Football have engaged a diverse group of trailblazers from society to support and amplify our bidding campaign.

These ambassadors are committed to spreading the word about football through their personal channels, encouraging everyone to #GetOnside As One for our FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ Bid. 

From our much-loved Matildas and Football Ferns players, to current and former elite footballers, and local community leaders, these Bid Champions represent the enthusiasm, dedication and diversity of football within our passionate sporting nations.

Demonstrating the power of the world game in a time of unprecedented and growing support for women in sport, this group also includes a cohort of influential Australian and New Zealand leaders.

These leaders embody the best of our country across sport, entertainment, media, arts, politics and business, and play a significant role as enthusiastic advocates of our Bid to host this prestigious event.

As One, they stand ready to welcome the world to our nations in 2023.
