Reporter Ahn Young-joon = The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which will be held in Australia and New Zealand in July, will also hold a fan festival like last year’s World Cup in Qatar. This is the first time a fan festival has been held at the Women’s World Cup.
FIFA announced on the 1st (Korean time), “We will hold fan festivals in nine cities in Australia and New Zealand where the Women’s World Cup will be held.”
FIFA explained, “The Fan Festival will provide a lively environment for football fans from all over the world who have gathered to watch the World Cup to enjoy music, entertainment, local culture and food as well as football.”
Prior to the Men’s World Cup, fan festivals were held in major cities every tournament since 2006.
In particular, at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, a large-scale fan festival park was created at Alvida Park in Doha, and it was a great success at the box office, with a cumulative 1.85 million people visiting during the tournament. 먹튀검증

Meanwhile, the Women’s World Cup will begin in July, and the Korean women’s soccer team, led by coach Colin Bell, is in Group H along with Colombia, Germany and Morocco.
Korea, which aims to advance to the round of 16, will have its first group match against Colombia on July 25th.
