The Women’s World Cup FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ takes place in Australia and New Zealand this year and the Swedish School in Sydney together with the Swedish Community in Sydney is in search of shower chanters, nightingales, Eurovision fans, Abba-enthusiasts and/or soccer fan to participate.
The Swedish Consulate has received a request to participate in the FIFA Fan Festival™ in Sydney and has reached out to the Swedish School in Sydney for help in organising an event. Of course, the Swedish School in Sydney, with the support of the Swedish community in Sydney and the Swedish schools in Australia, wants to support the world’s largest female sports event in Sydney.
We have been asked to perform (10 minutes) with something cultural, and our plan is to organise a ’Sing-along in Darling Harbour’. The Vikings were reported howling while singing, one could easily say that this is in our genes. Therefore, the school and all Swedish associations in Sydney are now searching far and wide for all shower chanters, nightingales, Eurovision fans and Abba-enthusiast to participate in the ‘Sing-along in Darling Harbour’. Practice ”Dancing Queen” by ABBA to perfection. However, at the FIFA Fan Festival™, there will be big screens displaying the song lyrics, similar to a typical sing-along session at Skansen.
How much we will perform, is unclear. It depends a lot on how the Swedish team performs and how they progress. We have been asked to come and perform on August 2nd at 5:55 pm (assembly before 5 pm, when the game starts). If we behave ourselves and the Swedish national team performs well, we might be invited on August 6th and 20th, mark those dates in your calendar as well.
Living far away? We wanted to give everyone the opportunity to participate, we will therefore stream the event via YouTube for you to watch and comment. Just register below and you will receive more information as we get closer to the event.
Please note that we have NOT been allocated any match tickets, and as a parent, you are RESPONSIBLE for your child/children during the event.
Attire: Blue and Yellow and/or Eurovision Song Contest (Mello).
