Commbank, Allianz Stadium Open for Matildas Screening
Sunday, August 13
Following the Matildas’ heart stopping win over France in the quarter-final of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, the NSW Government will open two Sydney stadiums as screening sites to ensure more football fans can cheer on the team in the tournament semi-final.
The Matildas will face England in their knockout clash on Wednesday 16 August at Stadium Australia, kicking off at 8:00pm, scene of some of the greatest moments in Australian sporting history.
The match is already a sell out and to ensure tens of thousands more fans can watch the match in a community atmosphere, the NSW Government has secured the rights and access to screen the match at CommBank Stadium in Parramatta and Allianz Stadium in Moore Park.
Anyone can attend.
“The Matildas’ run at this FIFA World Cup has captured the nation; their quarter-final win was the highest rating TV event since Cathy Freeman’s 400m gold medal run at the Sydney Olympic Games.
“We’re opening up more big screens... we want to give NSW every chance to break that viewing record.
“This is a once in a generation moment in Australian sport, and I want as many people as possible to be able to share in the excitement of the match in front of big screens with a community atmosphere.”
