“We would love to have the opportunity to roll out the red carpet again in 2027 for the women’s tournament,” SAFA chief executive Tebogo Motlanthe told AFP.

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.
