FIFA Women’s World Cup schedule: All match dates, times, teams for Australia & New Zealand tournament

The 2023 Women’s World Cup schedule is placed because the FIFA tournament prepares to mind to New Zealand and Australia for the very first time.

This is actually the ninth Women’s World Cup ever and will also be the greatest yet with 32 teams competing across 64 games.

The tournament is scheduled to start This summer 20, 2023 in Auckland, Nz before concluding on August, 20 in Sydney, Australia.

The United States will enter this latest Women’s World Cup as protecting champions, while England is chasing their first title getting topped by 2022 European champions.

The Sporting News concludes the entire agenda for the 2023 Women’s World Cup below.

Women’s World Cup 2023 tournament format

For the very first time in Women’s World Cup history, the 2023 edition may have an expanded field of 32 teams competing – eight greater than the prior tournament.

That expansion means more matches are going to be performed than in the past with 64 to occur across New Zealand and Australia.

With two extra groups put into this mixture for 2023, just the top-two teams will advance toward the knockout stages. In 2019, the 4 best third-placed sides also progressed towards the Round of 16, however, that will not function as the situation in 2023.

  • Group stage: This summer 20-August 3
  • Round of 16: August 5-8
  • Quarterfinals: August 11-12
  • Semifinals: August 15-16
  • Third-place playoff: August 19
  • Final: August 20

When do Women’s World Cup matches begin in New Zealand and Australia?

Kickoff occasions for that 2023 tournament happen to be released by FIFA and they’re staggered over the group stage to make sure multiple world timezones could be covered.

This summer-August window from the Women’s World Cup falls during the cold months season in New Zealand and Australia, so daytime heat will not matter.
