Women World Cup: FIFA Congress Set To Decide Host Country
By Sampson Adedeji
The FIFA Council is set to take a decision on the country will host the future editions of the Women’s World Cup, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The FIFA Council has officially entrusted the Congress with the responsibility of deciding which country will stage the event.
The most recent was in June 2020 when the hosting rights for the 2023 edition were awarded to Australia and New Zealand.
As FIFA seeks to enhance the image of women’s football around the world, this proposal represents a major step in aligning the FIFA Women’s World Cup with the flagship men’s competition.
The final step in the validation of this proposal is that it will soon be submitted for a final decision to the 71st FIFA Congress, which will bring together all the players concerned by videoconference on May 21, 2021.
