Super Falcons watch: US, Mexico launch joint bid to host 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup

The United States Soccer Federation and the Mexican Football Federation have jointly announced their intention to submit a bid to co-host the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

This would mark the third Women’s World Cup held in the United States and the first in Mexico.

The 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be the second tournament with 32 nations after the upcoming 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. This summer’s event will be the first Women’s World Cup with multiple hosts and the first in the southern hemisphere.

The United States previously hosted the Women’s World Cup twice, in 1999 and 2003.

U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone, who was a key part of the USA’s 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup championship, stated that “Hosting the 2027 Women’s World Cup provides us an incredible opportunity to cap off two historic years of World Cup soccer in the Concacaf region, helping us continue to grow the game among our confederation associations.”

Yon de Luisa, President of the FMF, added that “It is with pleasure that we are teaming up again with the U.S. Soccer Federation in the pursuit of this World Cup for our region, which will undoubtedly be historic.”

The bid for the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup follows the joint hosting of the 2026 FIFA Men’s World Cup by the United States, Mexico, and Canada, which is shaping up to be the largest, most impressive, and highest-attended World Cup in history.

The host for the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup is expected to be named by the FIFA Congress on May 17, 2024.

Overall, the joint bid from the United States and Mexico to co-host the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup holds great promise for the continued growth and development of women’s soccer in both countries and the region.

It is an exciting opportunity for Nigeria’s Super Falcons, who have never missed an edition of the FIFA World Cup.

The Falcons’ best result at the World Cup – reaching the quarterfinals – was achieved in 1999 when the United States first hosted the Mundial.

USA 2003 did not turn out so well for Nigeria as the Falcons lost all their three group games, scored zero goals, and conceded eleven.

The Super Falcons, however, remain Africa’s most successful women’s soccer team, having won the continent’s Women’s Cup of Nations a record 11 times.
