Football Federation Australia has acknowledged and thanked the Queensland Government for backing their bid to host the 2023 Women's World Cup.
Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane will be the venue that could potentially host a number of Women's World Cup matches during the month long tournament in June and July.
FFA Chief Executive David Gallop AM thanked the QLD Government for their support which will see Australia's third largest city join the action-packed tournament.
"We are thrilled to have the support of the Queensland Government," said Gallop. "The confirmation of this support and the inclusion of Brisbane as a proposed Host City significantly strengthen's Australia's bid.
"This will secure an outstanding legacy for female sport in Queensland and Australia, powering FFA's drive towards Gender Equality in Football."
Queensland Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk was proud to support the Matildas in their bid to host the World Cup.
"We want Queensland to be known as a world-class destination for major events," said Palaszczuk.
"Hosting World Cup teams would make Queensland the centre of attention for a massively growing global audience."
The FFA has received $5 million in funding from the Australian Government and the NSW Government has publicly supported the bid.
Australia are competing with six other countries for the right to host the tournament but their main rivals include Japan, Argentina, Colombia and possibly a joint South-North Korean bid.
There is a likelihood that the FFA will need to schedule matches at Suncorp Stadium around possible NRL fixtures for the Brisbane Broncos.
In the timeframe of the Women's World Cup this year, the Broncos played only once with three successive away matches during June and July.
