The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is just 43 days away and we're super excited to be heading over to cover the event.
The Women's Game wants to make sure that your trip to France is a fantastic experience so we've prepared a guide to help out.
When is it?
The FIFA Women's World Cup will begin on June 7 when hosts France face the Korea Republic at Parc des Princes in Paris with the final taking place on July 7 at Stade de Lyon.
There will be 24 teams from six confederations who will be competing across four groups of six.
Matildas matches and Group.
The Matildas were drawn in Group C alongside Italy, Brazil and Jamacia. It's a bit of deja vu for Australia as they come up against Brazil for the third consecutive time at a World Cup while they face Italy for just the second time in their history.
Australia v Italy

After this stage and if the Matildas make it out of their group, it's hard to tell where they will go. There are three different options including Le Havre (seven hours drive), Nice (four hours drive) or Montpellier (two hours drive).
Quick facts about France
France is a country in Western Europe with Paris being one of the most visited capital cities in the world. The country, which has a population of 67.2 million, borders Spain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switerzland, Monaco and Andorra. France is currently on Central European Summer Time which is GMT+2 meaning they are eight hours behind Australia's east coast.
They also use Euro which is the official currency of 19 of the 28 member states of the European Union.
Has France hosted a World Cup before?
Yes, they have. France has hosted two World Cups previously with their last coming in 1998.
Do I need a visa?
Now the following information is for Australian passport holders and may be different if you are planning on entering the country on a different passport.
With France being part of the Schengen area, this allows Australians to enter France without a visa for tourist reasons so you don't need a visa for travel up to 90 days in any 180-day period. However, it should be noted that the Schengen zone encompasses 25 other European countries so if you are to travel to other countries inside this area during your time at the World Cup this would count towards your 90-day limit.
