FIFA has moved quickly to speak regarding several reports that the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 could be postponed by several months.

Australia had its hottest day on record earlier this year after the remote coastal town of Onslow in Western Australia reported temperatures of 50.7C (123.26F).

Player safety is measured by wet-bulb globe temperature (WBGT) in football which takes into account temperature, humidity, wind speed and other factors that can influence players.

The full list of nominees for the Women’s 2022 Ballon d’Or has been announced, with Ada Hegerberg winning the inaugural Ballon d’Or Feminin back in 2018 and Megan Rapinoe scooping the prize the following year, but the Covid-19 pandemic caused the 2020 ceremony to be cancelled.

As a result, the tournament would be played during summertime in Australia and New Zealand, and during wintertime in Europe. The tournament is currently scheduled to be held between July 20 and August 20 next year, during wintertime in the host countries.

‘So much effort has gone into getting to this point. And we just can’t wait to kick it off. The goal is always to do things better, to take this tournament to the next level – we want to see 1.5 million attendees at our matches, we want to have over 1.5 billion people watching as well,’FIFA Chief operating officer Jane Fernandez. said.
