Australia’s opening 2023 World Cup match moved to Sydney’s largest stadium

Tournament co-hosts Australia were set to play their first match against the Republic of Ireland on Thursday, 20 July at 20:00 (AEST) at the Sydney Football Stadium, which has a capacity of just over 45,000. The match will be played at the same time, on the same day, but now will be held at Stadium Australia, which holds over 83,000. Only knockout matches were scheduled to be played at Stadium Australia, “but given the significant interest in tickets, FIFA has taken the decision to move Australia’s first match to Sydney’s largest Stadium.”
