Students from UCFB and GIS have been fortunate enough to have attended, and in some cases worked at, the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The tournament has been a triumph, showing the world once more why football is the world’s sport, with drama, excitement and underdog tales for the planet to see.

Many of our students and graduates were able to attend some fixtures while at the 2023 GIS Melbourne Global Sports Summit.

One of the games they witnessed was Germany’s 6-0 victory over Morocco at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.


One graduate on the summit said: “It was brilliant to get to watch a Women's World Cup game whilst visiting Melbourne on the GIS Summit.

“It was particularly great to see such a huge and diverse crowd at AAMI Park supporting the women's game and the atmosphere was great. Thanks to GIS for the experience.”

BA (Hons) Football Business and Media student Rio Rosenberg is also one of the UCFB representatives working at the tournament, covering the game for both Hayters TV and FIFA.

She said: “This year, I set a goal for myself to cover the Women’s World Cup. It’s an opportunity I’ve been waiting my whole life for, really.

“Especially with it being in Australia and New Zealand, two places I’ve never been to before the World Cup; My first World Cup, it’s an incredible experience for me.”
