The ninth edition and the biggest football tournament in women’s sporting history, FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, took a flying start on July 20 in Australia and New Zealand and has already started breaking records.
The 32 competing teams have been divided into eight groups, with four sides in each group. In a round-robin style, all the teams in the specific group will play every other team in that group once.
The top two teams from each group will then advance to the knockout round of 16 teams. Following the Round of 16, there will be quarterfinals, semifinals, and the final game of the tournament.
The tournament’s enlargement has increased the number of available berths, enabling several nations to make their international debuts. Particularly, this year marks the debut of the Philippines, Vietnam, Morocco, Zambia, Haiti, Panama, Portugal, and the Republic of Ireland.
Without any doubt, the Women’s World Cup this year will be unique, and given the competition’s high level, organisers had no trouble selling out all sponsorship packages. Let’s look at the sponsors of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023.
