On the back of our Socceroos’ most successful men’s World Cup performance in Qatar 2022, history is about to be made again!  

Never before has Australia hosted a FIFA World Cup. In July and August 2023, the best women’s football countries in the world will descend on our shores – and those of our Kiwi neighbours – to compete to be crowned FIFA World Champions. We have seen the global hype surrounding the success of Qatar’s hosting of the men’s FIFA World Cup, now this is our time to shine!

Captained by the 3rd best ranked female footballer in the world, Sam Kerr, our beloved Matildas will play three Group Stage matches in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne respectively and we want you to join us in cheering them on to the knock-out stages and, hopefully, to ultimate glory.

Join us as we do battle with Ireland, Nigeria and Canada with a choice of 3 tour options. 

Led by our Tour Host, the respected former Socceroo captain, Paul Wade OAM, our tour includes hotel accommodation and breakfast, domestic flights between games, local transport and 3 pre-match events prior to each of the three Group Stage matches.

The tour does not include match tickets – these can be purchased directly via the FIFA ticketing website – and we will not be including flights to/from the host cities, due to the enormity of the potential city and regional airport options. We will, however, be happy to assist with making these arrangements on your behalf.

So come join us for a chance to participate in Australian football history as our Matildas take on the world.

Determining whether your health, fitness, and pandemic vaccination status qualifies you for one of our tours, is entirely your responsibility. This includes every aspect of passport, visa, vaccination and health immigration requirements and, whilst we will always direct you to the local Embassy, Consulate or the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT – ) for clarification, we will not be held responsible for any tour guest who breaches the requirements and regulations of the host country/city. Any breaches of these responsibilities which might prevent you from travelling to or participating in any aspect of the tour, will be at your exclusive cost up to and including any losses which we incur as a result of your breach.

Whilst COVID-19 regulations and preventative requirements differ from country to country and state to state, you accept that you will willingly comply with any stated preventative measures that will minimise the spread of COVID-19 to fellow tour guests, fellow passengers or other members of the general public. Failure to do so may result in the immediate cancellation of your tour. In such a case, you will be exclusively responsible for all associated costs, fines and penalties and we will not be held responsible for any legal action whatsoever associated with the cancellation of your tour. You acknowledge that you are aware of, and assume responsibility for, the risks associated with travelling at this time. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we accept no liability in relation to these additional health risks.

In the unfortunate event that you contract COVID-19 whilst on tour, you agree to isolate from the group at your own expense and follow all local regulations relating to isolation, prior to potentially re-joining the tour. All associated costs will be at your expense and we will not be held responsible for any incurred loss whatsoever.

As a condition of booking, you are required to take out adequate travel insurance for yourself and all nominated members of your booking. You will be required to provide us with evidence of such insurances, if asked. We recommend comprehensive travel insurance. Such travel insurance should cover you and all of your nominated tour guests against the cost of cancellation by you/them, the cost of assistance, including medical and repatriation expenses in the event of personal injury, accident, illness or death, loss of or damage to baggage, loss of money, personal liability insurance and other expenses. It is a condition of us accepting your booking that you have made adequate insurance provision to cover you and your nominated tour guests.

Cancellations By Real Deal Sports Tours

In the event the tour is cancelled/postponed by Real Deal Sports Tours – for instance if there are insufficient registered guests to make the trip viable – we will offer you a full refund. This extends to payments made directly to us and not to any other service provider.

Cancellations By Tour Guest

You acknowledge that, in the event that you cancel your tour for whatever reason, all payments are non-refundable. It is for this reason that we strongly recommend that you ensure you take out comprehensive travel insurance. Cancellation by a tour guest almost always means that we incur additional costs. As such, every cancellation will cost the tour guest $100 in addition to any and all other costs incurred by us.
