NSW Premier Chris Minns said: “The Matildas’ run at this FIFA World Cup has captured the nation; their Quarter Final win was the highest rating TV event since Cathy Freeman’s 400m gold medal run at the Sydney Olympic Games.
“We’re opening up more big screens at CommBank Stadium and Allianz Stadium – we want to give NSW every chance to break that viewing record.
“This is a once in a generation moment in Australian sport, and I want as many people as possible to be able to share in the excitement of the match in front of big screens with a community atmosphere.”
