Re: Australia & New Zealand to host FIFA Women's World Cup 2023

why does it need an upgrade ?
average attendance for women's world cup qualifying match is between 10,000 -12,000
why spend all that money for a one off event, even if Matildas end up in the group that play here
a packed stadium every game makes for great atmosphere, whoever gets to play here.

Re: Australia's Olympic qualifying match against Vietnam

They appear to have very good safety precautions in place ,safer then other asian and most european countries at the moment.

Re: Not long before AUFC-W season ends

The W League is NOT a development tool used to validate the NTC program. What does validate the program is the integration of NTC players into the mainstream WNPL. Most would agree that the transition to WNPL from NTC is problematic. I could only imagine the huge STEP from NTC to W League. I think ...

The last point you make is very valid.

Those young players are missing out b...
