Aucklanders will be the first in New Zealand to see the FIFA Womens World Cup 2023 Unity Pitch up close, so round up your whānau and friends and head to Te Komititanga Square in the Commercial Bay precinct between 19-22 January!
The Unity Pitch, produced by FIFA, is a vibrant and unique multi-colored astro-turf football pitch, and will have a fun programme of free events and activities to get amongst over the four days

The schedule includes an opportunity for fans of all abilities, including those who are visually impaired, to test their football skills, a chance to high-five FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 mascot Tazuni as well as a meet and greet with the Football Ferns from 1.30pm on Friday 20 January.

See the full schedule, here.

The Unity Pitch represents a patchwork of the tournament brand colours, reflecting the two unique local cultures of World Cup co-hosts Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia, and the coming together of 32 participating nations.

The activation coincides with the international between the Football Ferns and world champions the USA at Eden Park on Saturday 21 January at 4.05pm and is a hint of what is to come when the global tournament kicks off in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland in July.

Challenge your work-mates!
