The inaugural tournament of the Women’s World Cup was in 1991 and was held in China.
Australia and New Zealand will co-host the ninth edition of the women’s biggest football festival in the summer of 2023.
This FIFA Women’s World Cup would be the first Women’s World Cup to be hosted by two countries and the first FIFA senior competition for either the men or the women to held across two confederations.
It would be a battle of grit and a show of character as thirty-two nations converge to battle in a tournament that is played with lots of guts.
The United States Of America women’s national team are the most successful nation in the Women’s World Cup as they have won it a whopping four times.
They are also the defending champions of the tournament after winning the last FIFA Women’s World Cup that was held in France in 2019.
Six nations have hosted the Women’s World Cup in the past and they are China, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden and the United States Of America who have hosted the tournament on two different occasions while others have only hosted it once.
The Lionesses of England alongside The Gals of the United States Of America are the odds-on favorite to go on to lift the trophy but only one winner can be crowned in this showpiece.
The likes of the Die Nationalelf of Germany and possibly Canada can also fancy their chances of achieving greatness.
