The Cup of Nations has arrived in Australia, with the Matildas set to battle it out against New Zealand, Argentina and South Korea in matches which form crucial preparation for the World Cup later this year.

Starting on Thursday, February 28, there will be three double-header match days across the eastern seaboard of Australia, with the matches technically classified as friendlies, but still part of a tournament which all four managers will be hoping to gain plenty from.

The first match day, while formerly scheduled to be played at Jubilee Oval in Kogarah, has been moved to Leichhardt Oval due to a poor playing surface at the aforementioned venue.

The second and third match days will be on Sunday, March 3, and Wednesday, March 6, with limited rest for the teams between games, as they travel first to Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, then finish the tournament at AAMI Park in Melbourne.

Australia are favoured to take the tournament out, but under coach Ante Milicic, fans will be intrigued to see what, if any, changes the Matildas will make moving forward.
