USA and Mexico collaborate to bid for hosting 2027 Women’s World Cup

The United States and Mexico are teaming up to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup. This joint-bid is not the only one in the running, as Germany, Netherlands, and Belgium have also joined forces in their bid. Meanwhile, Brazil has submitted their bid as a standalone host.

If Mexico and the US do win the bid, the 2027 Women’s World Cup will take place just one year after the 2026 World Cup, where the USMNT, Canada, and Mexico will jointly host the event.

US Soccer president Cindy Cone expressed, “This is a pivotal time for Women’s soccer. Around the world, Federations are beginning to invest more and more in the women’s game and records are being rewritten for revenue, viewership, and participation.” She believes that hosting the Women’s World Cup will unlock the economic potential of women’s soccer and send a message to young players around the world that there are no limits to their achievements.

The infrastructure and venues used for the 2026 Men’s World Cup could also be leveraged for the Women’s World Cup in 2027, according to the organizers. The US and Mexico are no strangers to top-class stadiums, with the likes of SoFi Stadium, MetLife Stadium, Estadio Azteca, and Estadio BBVA ready to be showcased.

The USMNT’s unexpected exit in the 2023 Women’s World Cup, where they were eliminated in the round of 16 by Sweden, led to the replacement of head coach Vlatko Andonovski with Emma Hayes. She is highly regarded in the women’s game after her successful stint with Chelsea in the Women’s Super League.

On the other hand, Mexico’s national team has not qualified for the past two World Cups, with their last appearance being in 2015 in Canada. However, if Mexico and the US are selected as co-hosts, they will both gain automatic qualification to the 2027 Women’s World Cup.

The joint bid by the United States and Mexico has the potential to make a significant impact on the global stage of women’s soccer. The FIFA Women’s World Cup has seen increased investment, viewership, and participation, and hosting the competition could elevate the game to new heights.

The bid to co-host the 2027 Women’s World Cup is a testament to the growing popularity and importance of women’s soccer. The joint effort by the United States and Mexico aims to create a truly world-class experience for players and fans alike, using the same venues and infrastructure from the 2026 Men’s World Cup.

The widespread investment and development in women’s soccer will undoubtedly benefit from hosting the 2027 Women’s World Cup. It will send a powerful message to young players all over the world that their potential in the sport knows no bounds. With top-class stadiums and experienced coaching staff, the joint bid by the US and Mexico is a promising prospect for the future of women’s soccer.
