The Victorian Government has announced more than $25 million in upgrades to AAMI Park, further enhancing Victoria’s home of football ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™.
In a boost for players and fans, the works will deliver a range of upgrades to the existing stadium sports lights, video screens, player, corporate, spectator and broadcast facilities and improved Wi-Fi connectivity.
Works will start in November and are expected to be finished in June 2023.
The announcement was made alongside the news that the Matildas will host Sweden on Saturday 12 November at AAMI Park, marking their first game in Victoria for nearly four years.
Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, Steve Dimopoulos: “We’re excited to welcome the Matildas and Sweden to the nation’s sporting capital and can’t wait to see AAMI Park packed with passionate football fans this November.”
“Ahead of hosting six games of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™, we’re investing in upgrades to AAMI Park so our Matildas and fans will have the best facilities.”
The FIFA Women’s World Cup™ will be the biggest women’s sporting event in the world and Victoria will host four group matches and two round-of-16 games, with the draw expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
