The 2027 FIFA Women's World Cup will be the 10th edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup, the quadrennial international women's football championship contested by the national teams of the member associations of FIFA. The tournament will involve 24 national teams, including that of the host nation, assuming the current format of the finals is maintained.
Host selection[edit | edit source]
The bidding process hasn't started yet, but there are some proposed bids for the World Cup.
Nordic Nations[edit | edit source]
The Nordic nations (Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) have expressed interest in a combined bid to host the World Cup with a statement from Norwegian Football Association president Terje Svendsen saying "We have a good Nordic co-operation and the Nordic countries have a leading position in women's football." The only Nordic nation that has previously hosted a Women's World Cup is Sweden, which did so in 1995.
Netherlands[edit | edit source]
The Dutch government declare an interest in hosting the tournament after a successful UEFA Women's Euro 2017 which saw the Dutch win the whole tournament. The Netherlands have never hosted a World Cup.
USA[edit | edit source]
Carlos Cordeiro, who was elected president of the United States Soccer Federation in 2018, expressed an interest in having the USA host the tournament as a part of his campaign platform, stating "I believe we can and should host the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2027." If successful, this would see the USA hosting the Women's World Cup one year after co-hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
