The Fiji Football Association is glad with the
announcement of Australia and New Zealand winning the bid to host the FIFA
Women’s World Cup 2023.

Fiji FA president and FIFA Council member Rajesh Patel
congratulated both New Zealand Football and Football Federation Australia for such
a milestone achievement.

“On behalf of the Board members and the entire football fraternity I heartedly congratulate
NZFA on the massive
achievement of winning the bid to host the FIFA Women’s World
Cup 2023.

“The involvement of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and ofcourse Scott Morrison assisted
us getting over the line,” said Patel

He said it was good news for other Pacific teams as
one of the teams would be seen in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023.

“Since New Zealand will be the host, they will be part of the tournament, so there will be one more team from the Oceania which will be given chance to be part of the tournament,” said Patel.

Patel gave assurance to both Australia and New Zealand Football that Fiji FA will give its full support.

“Please be rest assured of our relentless support in coming months/years
to make this event the best ever in FIFA’S History.”
