That playoff will award three tickets to the World Cup. In New Zealand, FIFA announced on Monday that the qualifiers will be decided at the Waikato (Kirikiroa) and North Harbor (Auckland) stadiums.

This “qualifier” for the World Cup is the first in history and will be played from 17 to 23 February 2023 with ten teams.

Two teams from Asia (Thailand and Taiwan), two from Africa, two from Concacaf, two from Conmebol, one from Europe and one from Oceania.

The two coming out of South America will be defined by the final stage of the Copa America, where Chile shares a group with Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Bolivia. The top three will advance to the finals.

Jane Patterson, New Zealand’s director of operations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, said the New Zealand players would welcome the ten teams participating in the tournament and fans from around the world with open arms.

“Qualifiers and friendlies will give fans of all ages the opportunity to enjoy the competition for the final three places between teams from around the world, while interest in the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 continues to grow”, he said.

Several teams have already qualified for the World Cup: five teams from Asia (Philippines, Japan, South Korea, China and Vietnam) and four from Europe (Denmark, Spain, France and Sweden) confirmed their presence in the World Cup. It is hosted by two countries, Australia and New Zealand.
