Brazil has been confirmed as host of the 2027 Women’s World Cup.

On Friday, 211 member nations voted on the bid during the 74th FIFA Congress in Bangkok to decide between Brazil and a joint bid from GermanyBelgium and the Netherlands as hosts for the next edition of the tournament.

A joint bid between the United States and Mexico was withdrawn three weeks ago with the two countries deciding to focus on the 2031 tournament and calling for a “historic first” equal investment with the men’s tournament being hosted across the two countries in 2026.

South Africa also withdrew its bid in November 2023, citing a determination to prepare a more comprehensive bid for the 2031 World Cup.

This was the first time Congress had voted on the hosts for a women’s tournament. Previously, hosts were decided based on voting from the FIFA Council.

Brazil was confirmed as the front-runner during FIFA’s evaluation report of the two bids. Brazil has never hosted a Women’s World Cup, but hosted the men’s tournament in 1950 and 2014.
