This can not be a stand alone event. That’s reality. Of course FIFA’s sponsors will support it and 6 or 8 local sponsors will join. Tv money will cover the rest but more so because sponsors will want to make a public show of gender equality and social correctness.

and while I am all for co-hosting , why this ridiculous number of stadiums again . 8 is enough, 12 ridiculous. Co -hosting should help save costs not create more.

Problems in supporting and growing women’s football will be emphasised by organising In Australia-NZ as foreign visitors will bark at the costs.

Yes fans from Japan and South Korea will travel. And from the USA but from Europe or South America ? Colombia would have been worse of course.

The choice in itself for Australia-NZ is fine but blowing up the event to a height it does not deserve will make the fall hurt more.

Did you not look at the date of the cup?
