  1. Opening ceremony is in Australia...well makes sense but it is only fair New Zealand gets the closing ceremony
  2. Australia will no doubt be playing the opening game but I can only imagine New Zealand will be playing their home game simultaneously on the same matchday. But what I am more interested in is the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup Group Draw and seeing who ends up in Australia's group but also who ends up in New Zealand's group. They still haven't told us the allocation for spots I mean since there will be 32 teams for 2023, it only makes sense that they use the same allocation for the Men back when the Men's World Cup had 32 teams FIFA World Cup allocation when it was 32 teams
  3. Yeah okay but at the same time Australia and New Zealand did have the better bid
  4. I mean was it ever really in doubt that Australia/New Zealand weren't going to win the rights to host? I mean they have better infrastructure, better tourism hub, better airport access for teams to arrive in country by plane, better transportation hub to get from and to the stadiums I am sorry to say all of this but it is true and that is why they were awarded the tournament
  5. I love it...Australia and New Zealand are co hosts...this is not only great for the Women's game but great for Women's football as a whole. The first time the tournament will be held by 32 teams and it only made sense that Australia/New Zealand won this right to host given the infrastructure.
  6. It seems Qatar are ready because their stadiums are next to being complete
  7. Yeah apparently multi-nation bids are going to be the way to go now starting from 2026 and beyond
  8. Since I am Canadian, I can't wait until the 2026 FIFA World Cup comes to Canada personally myself. Pros outweigh cons here, people: - Improved infrastructure. - Team automatically qualifies for World Cup especially if you are Canada, USA or Mexico - Getting revenues in form of tickets sold, merchandise, selling TV rights, etc. - Give other countries' national teams a chance to shine on the world stage. Like really where can you go wrong? - Chance of home fans meeting global superstars face to face - Increase awareness about the game in general public here in Canada especial
  9. The 10 US cities that I would choose even though I am Canadian 1- Boston 2- New York City 3- Los Angeles 4- Miami 5- Seattle 6- Atlanta 7- Washington, DC 8- Dallas 9- Denver 10- Philadelphia
  10. But I wonder how allocation will work for the Women since it will be 32 teams? For me I think allocation would have to be similar to how the Men have done it: CONCACAF (3.5) CAF (Africa)- (5) AFC (Asia)- (4.5) CONMEBOL (South America)- (4.5) OFC (Oceania)- (0.5) UEFA (Europe)- (13) Basically equals up to 32 teams for the women and you can have your Inter continental playoffs for the women (AFC vs OFC) (CONCACAF vs CONMEBOL) Basically giving the Women's World Cup more of a Men's World Cup type feel
  11. So far the only 3 bids that are for sure definite are: Australia/New Zealand co hosts Colombia Japan Honestly, for me I know I want to see the tournament hosted in Australia/New Zealand. Because not only would it be the first time in the history of the Women's World Cup that it would be hosted in 2 different countries but this would be the first time the tournament expands to 32 teams. 32 teams worked out well for the Men for decades so who knows what this can do for the Women's Game
