The decision was made last weekend at the federation’s executive council meeting.

The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany have already made a joint bid. South Africa was in the running to host the women’s competition in 2023 but withdrew.

In 2010, the southern African country became the only African country to host a World Cup.

The 64 matches held in one month took place in ten stadiums, five of which were purpose-built. These facilities are now used by soccer and rugby teams.
