BREAKING: FIFA has awarded the 2023 Women's World Cup to a joint bid from Australia and New Zealand. https://t.co/BuTQhnYFLp— Andrew Das (@AndrewDasNYT) June 25, 2020
- Joint bid with New Zealand and Australia.
- Colombia was the other bid to host, after several other federations dropped out.
- Also announced that FIFA Council had approved $1 billion in investment in women’s soccer over the next four years (I'll believe it when I see it)
- Tournament will be the first time 32 teams compete (normally it's 24)
