The U.S. Soccer and Mexico Soccer federations have unveiled a collaborative bid, named NEW HEIGHTS, to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup.
Both federations jointly announced the bid, highlighted its key features, and presented their hosting aspirations to FIFA on Friday morning.
The announcement highlighted a proposed “integrated partnership model that brings host cities, stadiums, partners and FIFA together, allowing the ecosystem to collectively tap into greater economic benefits and drive the women’s game forward.”
Should the joint bid by Mexico and the U.S. Soccer federations be accepted, it would result in automatic qualification for both Mexico and the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) for the 2027 World Cup.
U.S. Soccer President Parlow Cone reveals why they bid for Women’s World Cup
“This is a pivotal time for Women’s soccer,” said U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone. “Around the world, Federations are beginning to invest more and more in the women’s game and records are being rewritten for revenue, viewership, and participation. The U.S. and Mexico are in a unique position to host a World Cup that will leverage the same venues, infrastructure, and protocols used for the Men’s World Cup just a year prior. As a result, we believe the time is right to host a FIFA Women’s World Cup that features a truly world-class experience for players and fans, alike. This will not only unlock the economic potential of women’s soccer, it will send a message to young players around the world that there is no limit to what they can achieve.”
Ivar Sisniega, President of Mexico Football said: “We are delighted to partner with U.S. Soccer to present the bid for the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup. All of the teams that take part in this tournament will experience the warmth and support of our fans, as evident by the success of our women’s professional leagues. This is a great opportunity to grow women’s football and provide the players equal conditions so that they can shine and show the world what great players they are.”
Additionally collaborative bid for the 2027 Women’s World Cup by the U.S. Soccer and Mexico Soccer federations holds significant potential for North American soccer. This bid follows the hosting of the 2026 Men’s World Cup, which is set to take place in both the USA and Mexico, making it a momentous period for soccer in the region.
