News Brazil to Host 2027 Women’s World Cup

In a landmark decision, Brazil has been chosen to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup. FIFA’s 211 member associations voted to select the South American bid over a joint proposal from Belgium, Netherlands, and Germany (BNG). The decision was made during the FIFA Congress on Friday.

The voting process was unprecedented, marking the first time all FIFA member associations were given the opportunity to vote on the host for the women’s tournament. Previously, this decision was made exclusively by the FIFA Council, the organization’s executive committee.

Brazil’s bid triumphed with 119 votes against 78 for the European bid. Out of the 211 members, 207 were eligible to vote in the electronic ballot, which allowed for three options: Brazil, BNG, or abstain.

The Brazilian bid team celebrated jubilantly on the podium following the announcement, calling it a significant victory for women’s soccer, their nation, and the continent of South America. This win highlights Brazil's commitment to advancing women's sports and showcases the country’s enthusiasm for hosting international sporting events.

The field of candidates had narrowed down to two after the joint bid by the United States and Mexico was withdrawn late last month, and South Africa pulled out in November. The clear majority in favor of Brazil underscores the global support for their vision for the tournament.
