Kogarah’s Jubilee Stadium has been selected as FIFA Women’s World Cup team training site ahead of the 2023 tournament.
It’s the first time in the game’s history where competing countries will use dedicated training sites during the tournament.
Jubilee Stadium is one of 46 selected training sites across Australia and New Zealand.
While the participating teams will make their final selections after qualification later this year, it puts Georges River Council on the world map, says Mayor, Nick Katris.
“Football is very popular within the Georges River community so, it’s fantastic to see our world-class sporting facilities being selected as a training site for a world-class sport,” he said.
“We look forward to hosting the participating teams for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023.”
