FIFA confirmed on Saturday that three bids have been submitted to host the Women’s World Cup in 2027, representing various regions.

Europe has a joint bid from Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany, while Mexico and the United States submitted another joint bid just before the deadline on Friday. Brazil is the only country with a solo bid.

“FIFA will now conduct a thorough evaluation process, including on-site inspection visits that are due to get underway in February 2024, before publishing its findings in a bid evaluation report in May 2024,” the organisation said in a statement.

The ultimate decision will be determined by a transparent vote during the upcoming FIFA Congress in Bangkok on May 17, 2024.

South Africa had planned to bid but withdrew last month with their federation preferring “to present a well-prepared bid for 2031”.

The United States independently hosted the World Cups in 1999 and 2003, and Germany hosted the event in 2011. The most recent Women’s World Cup, held in July and August of this year, was co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand. In the final, Spain emerged victorious against England.
