Brisbane/Meaanjin has celebrated “Two Days to Go” until the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ with the arrival of a giant 20 metre FIFA Unity Jersey and the official FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ mascot Tazuni via boat on the Brisbane River. Tazuni then made her way to Brisbane Stadium where she was greeted with a Corroboree performance by Traditional Owners and Custodians of Brisbane, the Turrbal Tribe.

The scenes were captured via a team of 360 degree drones and are set to be broadcast to the rest of the world as Brisbane/Meaanjin prepares to host eight games during the tournament. Five of those will come during the group stage - including Australia's second group stage match with Nigeria - while the play-off for third place will round off the arena's three knockout fixtures.
