FIFA will choose 2023 women's world cup hosts on 25 June


The hosts for the 2023 Women's World Cup will be choose at the FIFA Council 's online meeting on June 25, the global soccer body said Friday.

FIFA will choose between Brazil , Colombia, Japan and an Australia and New Zealand joint bid in what it said was the "most competitive bidding process" in the 29-year history of the event. None of the bidding nations have previously staged the event.

The hosts were originally to be selected at a meeting of the FIFA Council in Addis Abeba in June but that was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"FIFA remains committed to implementing the most comprehensive, objective and transparent bidding process in the FIFA Women's World Cup history," said Fatma Samoura, FIFA general secretary.

FIFA said it will publish its assessment report on the four bids in early June. In December South Korea and South Africa dropped out of the race.

For the first time the 2023 tournament will feature 32 teams, up from France's 24 in 2019.
