"Not only is this going to promote female soccer across our state – it’s going to be a massive opportunity to showcase South Australia to a global television audience of more than one billion people”. Steven Marshall –Premier of South Australia

THE LEGACY

Hosting the FIFA Women's WorldCup 2023™ will see South Australia focus on profound change for women's football and sport more broadly. The tournament will be used as a platform to unlock investment both on and of the playing field. It will drive gender equity, capitalise on participation opportunities across all age groups and recognise the significant contribution women make in reading the game. Our efforts will create a lasting legacy for football, women and South Australia.

Football South Australia has developed the Legacy Plan that will focus on three key areas:

1.Unlocking Infrastructure

2.Grow participation

3.Increase leadership

 

Football South Australia will work collaboratively with government, Football Australia and the corporate sector to unlock investment to deliver the plan.
