Netherlands faces more competition with Mexico and U.S. in battle for World Cup organization
The Netherlands gains competition in its desire to bring in the 2027 Women’s World Cup. The United States and Mexico have also applied to co-host the tournament.
As a result, there are now three candidates, as South Africa and Brazil have also already applied together. And some more may follow, as the registration deadline does not close for another month. Not until May 2024 will a major FIFA congress announce where the tournament will be held.
Two World Cups in two years
“Hosting the 2027 World Cup gives us an incredible opportunity to conclude two historic years in the Concacaf region,” said Cindy Cone, the female president of the U.S. Soccer Federation. After all, a year before that, the men’s tournament is already in Mexico, Canada and the U.S.
This year, for the first time, the World Cup will be held in multiple countries. From July 20 to August 20, the World Cup will be fought in Australia and New Zealand. The Dutch will meet the United States, Vietnam and Portugal in the group stage.
