USA and Mexico Announce Joint Bid to Host 2027 Women’s World Cup

This Wednesday, the United States and Mexico plan to bid to co-host the 2027 Women’s World Cup. 

The U.S., along with Canada and Mexico, is already set to host the 2026 Men’s World Cup; also, the 2028 Olympics will be taking place in the U.S. in Los Angeles. 

In 1999, the U.S. hosted the first women’s World Cup when the USWNt won the tournament in a dramatic penalty kick shootout against China at the Rose Bowl. In 2003, the U.S. hosted again when China was scheduled to host, but the tournament was moved to the U.S. after a severe outbreak of SARS in China. 

“The United States has always been a global leader for the women’s game, and we would be honored to co-host the world’s premier event for women’s soccer along with Mexico,” said U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone, who played in two World Cups, including the 1999 tournament. “Hosting the 2027 Women’s World Cup provides us an incredible opportunity to cap off two historic years of World Cup soccer in the Concacaf region, helping us continue to grow the game among our confederation associations”

“A record six teams from Concacaf will play in the Women’s World Cup this summer, and the United States and Mexico want to continue to push the envelope for the development of women’s soccer across the entire region.”

According to FIFA, this Wednesday was the deadline to submit expressions of interest. Big agreements are due by May 19, and official bids by Dec. 8. South Africa has announced a bid, and Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands have announced a joint bid. Brazil’s sports minister has said that the nation will bid as well. 

The host for the 2027 Women’s World Cup is expected to be named by the FIFA Congress on May 17, 2024.
