FIFA Congress votes on future of Women’s World Cup hosting, to explore new competition opportunities
Zurich, May 22: The 71st FIFA Congress has unanimously voted to bring the bidding process for the hosting of the FIFA Women’s World Cup in line with the process for the men’s FIFA World Cup. The allocation of all future hosts will be voted on by the FIFA Congress, just as is the case with the FIFA World Cup, and will no longer be decided by the FIFA Council (as was still the case most recently in June 2020, when Australia and New Zealand were announced as hosts of the 2023 edition in a transparent vote).
Zurich, October 22: Following the decision in June to award Australia and New Zealand the right to host the next FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023, the process to select the host cities for the tournament took its first steps on 19 October with confirmation that virtual workshops between FIFA and the 12 candidate cities will take place from 20 October to 4 November.
