FIFA Reveals 2027 Women’s World Cup Host Contenders

On Saturday, FIFA officially confirmed the submission of three bids to host the Women’s World Cup in 2027 from different confederations, marking the closure of the bidding process.

One bid hails from Europe, a collaborative effort between Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany. Meanwhile, Mexico and the United States joined forces to present another joint bid just before the Friday deadline. Brazil stands as the sole country with an individual bid.

FIFA outlined its next steps, stating that a comprehensive evaluation process, including on-site inspections scheduled to commence in February 2024, will be conducted. The findings will be published in a bid evaluation report in May 2024. The ultimate decision on the host country will be determined through an open vote at the upcoming FIFA Congress in Bangkok on May 17, 2024.

South Africa, initially planning to bid, withdrew last month, with their federation opting to focus on presenting a well-prepared bid for the 2031 World Cup.

The United States previously hosted the Women’s World Cup on its own in 1999 and 2003, while Germany hosted the event in 2011. The most recent Women’s World Cup took place in July and August of this year, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, with Spain emerging victorious over England in the final.
