FIFA womens world cup trophy

With just 19 days to go before the deadline that is the 15th April 2014 for host countries to submit their interest to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019. South Africa is the only country to officially state its intention to bid for the tournament. Brazil, Poland and Sweden who have all hosted major tournaments recently have previously expressed an interest for this event.

Tomorrow the 28th March 2014 FIFA will be releasing the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Rankings will the USA still be holding onto first place?

    Read on Twitter that South Korea announced a bid. We’ll see if anymore announce it tomorrow. Or its South Africa vs South Korea.

      We have not heard of any other official bids yet… They are leaving late if they are going to submit.

    I think you are absolutely right A-Hamm.

    The 2019 bid should attract some strong proposals – I was actually surprised that there was not more interest for the 2015 edition. There are so many benefits to hosting the global tournament, and with the right nation, the women’s game will have a fantastic stage to showcase what they can do and enjoy the celebration of the game.

    Canada have a tough act to follow, as in my opinion Germany were great hosts of the World Cup 2011. Lots of excitement building up to the tournament and fantastic attendances throughout. I think the only disappointment for Germany was their earlier than anticipated exit.

    Hopefully there will be a competitive bidding process…the 2011 one between Germany and Canada (with Australia, Peru dropping out before the vote) was the only real one right? 1991, 1995, and 1999 were awarded to China, Sweden & USA because they were 3 of the best programs (and best shots at good attendance), so no bidding process right? Then 2003 same thing for China, but when it switched to USA because of SARS, China then got the rights for 2007 automatically with no bid process. 2015 had Zimbabwe attempt to challenge Canada but that was never going to happen. Hopefully this one has 4 or 5 countries attempt to win the vote without dropping out.

    And hopefully there is no controversy like with the Men’s WC voting for 2018 & 2022. Though I doubt there would be.

    I wonder if there will be some last minute Football Associations officially submitting interest for this tournament. The competition is getting bigger with every edition – I would imagine it would be a privilege to host
