In the wake of the success of the Matilda’s, the Albanese Government pledged $200 million for women’s sport.

The boost in funds aims to improve women’s sporting facilities and equipment. This announcement comes after the Matildas’ historic Women’s World Cup run sparked an unprecedented outpouring of support for women’s football.

Women’s participation and excellence has always had a rich and varied history in Australia despite the lack of government and corporate support.
