The Socceroos and Matildas will play matches in Canberra over the next 18 months after securing funding in the ACT government's 2019-20 budget on Tuesday.

Canberra was snubbed when the A-League expanded for the second time in a decade last December, but Football Federation Australia has promised the capital three internationals.

The match schedule will be announced on Friday.

The Socceroos haven't played in Canberra since hosting a World Cup qualifier against Kyrgyzstan in 2015, while the Matildas used to be based at the Australian Institute of Sport.

The ACT government also allocated $20 million towards a new $24.5 million facility set to become the new Capital Football headquarters.
