Jane Fernandez talks to Elmo about the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup

Our very own Jane Fernandez had a chat with Sesame Street’s Elmo as they talked about the exciting future of women’s football in Australia.

There was plenty to talk about as Jane Fernandez sat down for a chat with Elmo from India’s Sesame Street.

Jane has a special role as Elmo said, she’s the 'Head of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Australia Office' which means that she is responsible for managing the big event when it comes to Australia in three years’ time.

Jane had a special message to all the young football fans out there as everyone gets excited to watch the tournament in Australia.

"Football is the game that connects us all. It’s the world game, it connects us all across the world and to all the football fans we really can’t wait to see them all in Australia and New Zealand in 2023," Jane said.

"To all the fans, we want you to keep playing football and if you’ve never played before, now is a great time to start to learn."

Elmo could not hold in his excitement as he counts down the days until 2023.

"Elmo can’t wait for 2023 already," he said.

Jane asked if Elmo would be able to make it to Australia for the World Cup and you’ll be happy to hear his reply.

“Yes baby! As long as Elmo’s mummy and daddy can bring him there," he said.
