The CommBank Matildas will complete their 2022 International calendar in Gosford as they meet Thailand in the second match of the Seven Consulting International Series on Tuesday 15 November at Central Coast Stadium.
The Seven Consulting International Series in November is part of the preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™, where the CommBank Matildas will utilise six FIFA International Windows for the best possible lead-up for the tournament which commences on 20 July 2023.
Two-time defending Olympic silver medallists, Sweden, have already been locked in for a Saturday afternoon classic at AAMI Park on 12 November with Thailand rounding out the calendar.
It is a welcome return to Gosford for the women’s national team with the last time being as part of a two match FIFA Women’s World Cup™ farewell series against New Zealand in 2011.
Football Australia CEO, James Johnson, said: “We are pleased to be able to bring the CommBank Matildas to another strong football region of Australia. Hosting the final match of 2022 at Gosford is a wonderful chance to highlight the world-class facilities at Central Coast Stadium and the strong support for our national teams in the region.”
“This year we have seen an exciting mixture of teams in the schedule with nations covering Europe, Asia, North America and Oceania and facing Thailand is a key component of the CommBank Matildas’ preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™.”
“We are appreciative of the collaboration from the Football Association of Thailand and look forward to hosting them ahead of their FIFA Women’s World Cup™ inter-confederation play-off.”
Seven Consulting founder, Declan Boylan stated: “We are proud to have sponsored the CommBank Matildas since 2017 as part of our commitment to raising the profile of women’s sport and look forward to witnessing another step of the journey to a historic moment in Australian football and Australian sport.”
A two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup™ participant, Thailand are one of ten teams to have qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™ inter-confederation play-offs to be held in February next year.
Australia and Thailand last met at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup™ earlier this year with the CommBank Matildas continuing their undefeated streak.
