Queensland Government backs 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup bid
Queensland Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk has announced backing for the bid by Football Federation Australia (FFA) to host the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.
Revealing funding to back the bid, Premier Palaszczuk stated "we want Queensland to be known as a world-class destination for major events.
"Hosting World Cup teams would make Queensland the centre of attention for a massively growing global audience."
If successful, Queensland's backing would potentially see the state host tournament fixtures as Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium and the new North Queensland Stadium in Townsville.
Welcoming the funding, FFA Chief Executive, David Gallop stated "we are thrilled to have the support of the Queensland Government.
"The confirmation of this support and the inclusion of Brisbane as a proposed Host City significantly strengthen's Australia's bid.
"This will secure an outstanding legacy for female sport in Queensland and Australia, powering FFA's drive towards Gender Equality in Football."
