Everyone has been waiting to find out the match schedule and the excitement is now going to crescendo. We can't wait for the curtain to rise on the nine host cities and 10 stadiums of the competition so that the most prestigious international stage allows us once again to see women's football pushing the limits."
Richard Colbeck, Australia's Minister for Sport, also expressed his enthusiasm for the competition "This event will embody our country's passion for women's football and give Australians the opportunity to see the best players in the world at work and to be inspired by them [...] It is an honor for our country to host 35 matches, including the final, and this sporting showcase further reinforces our reputation in terms of organization of major events."
Grant Robertson, New Zealand's Minister for Sport and Recreation, said the whole country was looking forward to hosting 24 group matches and 5 knockout matches "Holding the same number of matches as Australia during the group stage is an honor for our country and there is no doubt that the people of New Zealand, crazy about sport, will experience this unique event intensely. Everyone will support the Football Ferns hoping to see them go far in the competition."
