2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Final
|Event||2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Final|
|Date||7 July 2019|
|Venue||Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon, France|
The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Final is scheduled to take place on 7 July 2019 and will determine the champion of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, the eighth edition of FIFA's premier women's football competition. It will be played at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon, France, between the winners of the semi-finals fixtures.
The final will be held at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon, France, known as Stade de Lyon during the tournament. The 57,900-seat stadium was opened in 2012 and is the third-largest in France, behind the Stade de France and Stade Vélodrome in Marseilles. It primarily serves as the home of the Olympique Lyonnais men's team. The club's women's team has won six UEFA Women's Champions League titles, including four consecutive titles from 2016 to 2019.
Lyon was chosen as the venue for the final in September 2017 and will also host both semi-final fixtures.
The scheduling of the final was criticized by many followers of the women's game. The finals of two men's continental championships—the Copa América in Rio de Janeiro and CONCACAF Gold Cup in Chicago—will be held on the same date.
