Brazil is facing competition from several other strong contenders for the right to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup, including the joint bids from Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, and the United States and Mexico. However, the Brazilian government has committed to providing full support for the bid, including financial guarantees and infrastructure investment.
The FIFA Congress will make its decision on the host of the 2027 Women’s World Cup on May 17, 2024.
If Brazil is selected to host the tournament, it will be a major boost for women’s football in South America and the world. Brazil has a long and successful history in the women’s game, and hosting the World Cup would be a great opportunity to further promote and develop the sport.
