The Trans-Tasman bid was the the favourite to win as FIFA revealead that they were judged the strongest during the technical evaluation phase as the joint-bid had a 4.1 score while Colombian bid had a 2.8 score.
The announce was made by FIFA’s president Gianni Infantino through an official livestream shared by FIFA official social media.
Both countries have tradition when it comes to women’s football. Australia played seven out of eight World Cup editions and won 2010 AFC Women’s Asian Cup while the Football Ferns appeared in five World Cups and won OFC Women’s Nations Cup for six times.
The upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup will be the first edition with 32 teams. The tournament will be held in twelve venues: seven in Australia and five in New Zealand. Oceania Football Center congratulates both countries for this major accomplishment.
