It has been announced that there have been four applications submitted to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2027.
Names have been proposed by the “South African Football Association (SAFA)” and the “Brazilian Football Association (CBF).”
The “United States Soccer Federation” and the “Mexican Football Federation” have teamed up on the other two joint declarations of interest.
FIFA will likely issue a bidding agreement to those who are interested in the next stage, and the member associations will have until May 19 to respond and declare their interest.
The Secretary General of FIFA, Fatma Samoura stated, “We are overjoyed by the declarations of interest we got, especially because they come from member associations with strong football customs, indicating four confederations, thus verifying the enduring prominence of women’s football throughout the world.”
The most extensive and sophisticated bidding process in the FIFA Women’s World Cup’s history is available to all member associations. By means of public voting on May 17 of the years to come. This year, the FIFA Congress will choose the hosts.
In 1999 and 2003, the United States sponsored the FIFA Women’s World Cup, and its national team earned the trophy four times, making it the most effective team in the competition’s history. Germany hosted the event back in 2011, as part of the united European bid, and also won twice in 2003 and 2007. The Netherlands, which hosted the tournament in 2017, are the only country to have ever won a major trophy, as opposed to Belgium.
Brazil has twice sponsored the men’s World Cup. But they have never organised the Women’s World Cup. South Africa, which hosted the men’s World Cup in 2010, is attempting to host the women’s competition for the first time in Africa.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup is set to take place this year in Australia and New Zealand from July 20 to August 20.
