Brazil Wins Bid to Host 2027 Women’s World Cup

Brazil will be the first South American nation to host the prestigious Women's World Cup in 2027.

Brazil has been named the official host of the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup!  Announcement was made at FIFA’s congress in Bangkok, where Brazil triumphed over a strong joint bid from Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany (BNG) by a vote of 119 to 78.

This victory signifies more than just a new host country. Brazil’s bid, which emphasized world-class facilities and infrastructure, reflects a growing commitment to elevating the women’s game on a global scale.  

“Congratulations to Brazil. We will have the best World Cup in Brazil. Many thanks as well to the BNG bid, who have been fantastic.” 

“We are working on a transformation, not only for the country but for the continent,” declared Valesca Araujo, operational manager of Brazil’s bid team. Her words resonate with the potential impact this World Cup could have on inspiring future generations of South American female footballers.

It’s important to note that Brazil wasn’t the only contender. The United States and Mexico previously submitted a joint bid, but they withdrew in April to focus on the 2031 tournament. Similarly, South Africa also withdrew their bid in November.

While both bids met FIFA’s hosting criteria, Brazil reportedly received higher marks in technical areas, including:

  • Stadiums
  • Accommodation
  • Fan Zones
  • Transportation

This focus on creating a seamless and enjoyable experience for players and fans alike played a crucial role in securing the winning bid.

The 2027 tournament will be 10th edition of the Women’s World Cup and will maintain the 32-team format established in 2023. Following the recent success of the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which saw Spain claim victory, Brazil’s win injects a wave of excitement into the future of women’s football.

With a rich history of hosting the major sporting events, including the men’s World Cup in 1950 and 2014, Brazil appears well-positioned to deliver a truly unforgettable Women’s World Cup experience in 2027. The focus on infrastructure advancements and fan engagement suggests a tournament that will not only celebrate the beautiful game but also empower and inspire women in sports across South America and beyond.
