Campbelltown will welcome the South Korean women’s national football team during next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup after the city was confirmed as the team’s home base for the tournament.
FIFA confirmed Campbelltown as one of 16 team base camps hosted in Australia during the Women’s World Cup, which is being hosted by Australia and New Zealand from 20 July to 20 August 2023.
South Korea will use Campbelltown Stadium as a training venue during and before the tournament starts.
“The FIFA Women’s World Cup promises to be a massive nation-wide event that will draw people from all across the world so we’re really excited to be hosting the South Korean team in our city during the tournament,” Mayor George Greiss said.
“It’s a ringing endorsement for the quality of Campbelltown Stadium’s pitch and our capacity to host top-class international teams during one of the world’s biggest sporting events,” Cr Greiss said.
“We look forward to welcoming the South Korean team and helping them to prepare for their World Cup matches,” he said.
South Korea have been drawn in Group H and will kick off their campaign against Colombia on Tuesday 25 July at Sydney Football Stadium.
The team’s most recent success came at the 2022 AFC Asian Cup, where they finished the tournament as runners-up following a thrilling final against China.
