Legacy of Australia’s pioneering female footballers celebrated

The legacy of Australia’s pioneering female footballers was celebrated on Sunday June 25 as 4,000 football fans descended on Sydney Harbour Bridge to mark 25 days before kick off in the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023.

The Unity Celebration showed how far the sport has come since the 1988 FIFA Women’s Invitational Tournament was earmarked as a “pilot” Women’s World Cup with FIFA to then decide if the women’s game warranted the same showcase event as their male counterparts.

Former Matildas vice captain and cap #42 Moya Dodd AO (pictured centre) said: “Watching women’s football grow has been like watching a movie where you know the ending. You enjoy the plot twists, but you just know that in the end the goodies will prevail. During this World Cup, a lot of people will be seeing that movie for the first time. And I know they’re going to love it.”
