England planning to host the Women’s World Cup for first time

England is planning to launch a bid for hosting the Women’s World Cup in 2031, an event it has never previously hosted.

The UK plans to host major events between now and 2040 to “help retain the UK’s position as a world-leading host nation”. The 2031, 2035, or 2039 Women’s World Cups have been identified as potential targets the UK could aim to host.

The list of future major tournament hosting opportunities was announced by UK Sport, the government-funded agency responsible for investing in and supporting Olympic and Paralympic sports and leading major sporting event hosting.

It [Women’s World Cup] has a special appeal to us,” said Simon Morton, UK Sport’s director of events.

“The impacts that we look for most strongly now around big sporting events are societal. The ability to have these moments of real shared human experience where we bring people together. particularly in a sort of post-Covid world, particularly in an increasingly digital world. are the impacts that are really rising to the fore when we think about hosting these big, big tournaments.

The potential of sporting events to bring the country together at scale, there’s almost nothing else that does that. And that’s really where we’re focusing our emphasis on the impacts of events. When we look at a Women’s World Cup that’s the sort of impact that we want to achieve.”

Saudi Arabia to rival UK

Monika Staab, the technical director of the Saudi Arabia women’s team, recently said they are interested in hosting the Women’s World Cup in 2035.

FIFA will announce the hosts for the 2027 Women’s World Cup in May 2024. Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands have launched a joint bid to host the 10th edition of the tournament in 2027. South Africa, Brazil, and a joint bid by Mexico and the United States are among other bids.
