Matildas to play their final Pre-Olympic match on home soil at Accor Stadium

Football Australia today announced that the CommBank Matildas will host reigning AFC Women’s Asian Cup™ champions and FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ participants, China PR at Accor Stadium in the second of the two match “’Til It’s Done Farewell” international series to be played during the May/June FIFA Women’s International Window.

On Monday 3 June, through the support of the New South Wales (NSW) Government via its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, fans will see Accor Stadium welcome the CommBank Matildas for their final match on home soil before they depart for the Paris 2024™ Olympic Games.

The CommBank Matildas enter this series against China PR on the back of twelve consecutive sold out matches on home turf, including three sold out crowds of 75,784 – the largest-ever crowds for women’s football matches in the country – at Stadium Australia (Accor Stadium) during their FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ campaign.

Football Australia Chief Executive Officer, James Johnson, said: “As we have seen over the past twelve months, the CommBank Matildas are a box office entertainment juggernaut with an incredible streak of 12 sold out home matches with over 600,000 fans in attendance and millions watching the broadcast of these encounters.

“Our senior national teams are Australia’s teams, and it is important we play matches in as many cities and regional centres as possible, and we are thrilled that the next set of CommBank Matildas’ home matches we will continue to open the door for all Australians to connect and witness the team live.”

“We appreciate the support of the New South Wales and South Australian Governments in partnering with us to provide the CommBank Matildas with memorable occasions for their final matches in Australia as they prepare for the Paris 2024 Olympics,” concluded Johnson.

Australia and China have a long-standing history with the two nations having met on 42 occasions extending back to 1988. The last meeting was in February 2020, where the two nations played out a 1-1 draw at CommBank Stadium in Sydney.

New South Wales Minister for Jobs and Tourism, John Graham, said:  “Congratulations to the CommBank Matildas who have once again captured the hearts and admiration of the nation in qualifying for the Olympics last week.”

“Sydney has kicked another goal as the nation’s home of football, securing the CommBank Matildas’ final match in Australia before they begin their pursuit for gold. This match between the CommBank Matildas and China in Sydney is a fantastic opportunity for fans from across the nation to get behind the CommBank Matildas at a packed Accor Stadium before they head off to Paris,” expressed Graham.
