FIFA has received four bids to host the Women’s World Cup in 2027, with Brazil and South Africa submitting bids and Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany launching a joint expression of interest. The United States and Mexico have also put in a combined bid to stage the tournament. Countries have to submit their full bids by 19 May, and the hosts will be chosen by the FIFA Congress via public voting on 17 May 2024.
FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura expressed her excitement for the expressions of interest received, noting that they come from member associations with a strong football tradition representing four confederations. She also reassured all member associations that they can rely on the most robust and comprehensive bidding process in the history of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The United States hosted the tournament in 1999 and 2003, but not as a joint bid, while Germany hosted it in 2011. The 2023 World Cup will take place in Australia and New Zealand between 20 July and 20 August. The United States, Mexico, and Canada will co-host the men’s World Cup in 2026.
