We just have to make some amendments and modifications, but overall it is very positive. For us, it is important to have stakeholders who are behind this event, and who show dedication. We feel that here in Ahmedabad, and so we're confident that if the venue is picked, it will deliver a great tournament."

Tournament Director of the LOC, Roma Khanna said, "At the end, it is a FIFA World Cup so everything has to be perfect, and certain things have to be improved, but the available facilities at the TransStadia and core infrastructure that is required, is in place, and is very good."

"What is equally important for us is to see enthusiasm for development of women's football not just by hosting the tournament, but by helping football become the sport of choice for young women. This World Cup has the potential of changing women's football, and overall women's sport in the country and we're confident of the support from the Government of Gujarat."
