In a historic move, Brazil has been selected to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2027, marking the first time the tournament will be held in the South American nation. The decision was announced at the 74th FIFA Congress in Bangkok, Thailand, following a competitive bid process, Wego reports.

According to FIFA’s official announcement, the Brazilian bid triumphed over strong contenders from Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands in an open vote among FIFA Congress members. This marks a significant milestone as it’s the first time the host country for the Women’s World Cup has been determined through a democratic voting process.

Building on the momentum of the record-breaking 2023 event held in Australia and New Zealand, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2027 promises to be an exciting showcase of women’s football on a global stage. This will be the tenth edition of the tournament, with previous hosts including China PR, Sweden, the USA, Germany, Canada, and France.
