The United States and Mexico submitted a joint bid on Friday to co-host the 2027 women’s World Cup that, if successful, would see the North American neighbors stage global soccer’s two showcase events in back-to-back years, Report informs via Reuters.
Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands earlier on Friday put in a joint bid to be the 2027 hosts, while Brazil put forward their bid to the world soccer governing body FIFA last month.
Member associations had until Friday to submit their bids to FIFA. South Africa had also submitted a bid but withdrew last month, saying they felt it was better to present a “well-prepared bid” for the 2031 edition.
FIFA will organise on-site inspection visits to bidding countries in February before the hosts are appointed in May by the FIFA Congress.
