There is no bigger event than a FIFA World Cup™ and for Adelaide to be a part of it is an honour and an exciting journey that we will all travel on over the next three years.
These events don't happen without critical support from both State and Federal Government, and I want to thank our National Government, our State Goverment, Steven Marshall our Premier, and Corey Wingard our Minister, who have been critical behind the scenes in making sure we put in a really strong bid to be a part of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup™."
