England has its sights set on the Women’s World Cup in 2031

A sign. While FIFA has not yet awarded the organization of the Women’s World Cup in 2027, the next edition is already attracting interest. England would have started to work on a bid for the Women’s World Cup in 2031. The announcement was made by Debbie Hewitt, the president of the English Football Association (FA). The British leader explained that the priority remained the men’s Euro in 2028, for which England is officially a candidate. But the country could also position itself for the Women’s World Cup, an event never before organized in the United Kingdom. The bidding process will not begin until FIFA awards the 2027 edition, for which four bids are competing: Brazil, South Africa, a duo formed by the United States and Mexico, and finally European trio composed of Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
