relive the World Cup Opening Ceremony at Eden Park in Auckland


Video duration: 10 minutes.

The 2023 World Cup kicked off on Thursday with a show staged at Eden Park in Auckland, ahead of the inaugural match between New Zealand and Norway.

Accustomed to the All Blacks’ haka, Eden Park in Auckland vibrated to the rhythm of paintings depicting Maori traditions and women’s football on Thursday 20 July, on the occasion of the opening ceremony of this 2023 World Cup (which will take place from 20 July to 20 August). Ten minutes of entertainment to officially launch the competition in view of the first match of Group A, between New Zealand, co-organizer of the competition with Australia, and Norway.

Contingents representing the 32 nations present in Oceania this summer performed on the lawn, while New Zealand artist BENEE, accompanied by Australian Mallrat, performed the official song of this competition “Do it again”. The first day of the World Cup, however, was marred by an earlier shooting in central Auckland that left three people dead, including the suspected perpetrator.
