Lambert Maltock Predicts Upward Trajectory Of Women’s Football In Oceania

The FIFA Council’s decision to award the co-hosting rights of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to Australia and New Zealand will have enormous benefits in terms of the growth and development of the game in our region.

A delighted Oceania Football Confederation President Lambert Maltock described it as a watershed moment and a shot in the arm for our football family across the entire Pacific.

“Women’s football is on the rise in Oceania and with one of our Member Associations co-hosting a premier FIFA tournament the game will receive another major boost to continue on its upward trajectory in the coming years,” he said.

“This World Cup will also be an historic occasion, the first ever inter-confederation FIFA World Cup which will further strengthen the ties and relationship with our close friends at the Asian Football Confederation.” He concluded.
