Today, the United States Soccer Federation and the Mexican Football Federation jointly bid to host the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup, a bid that will capitalize on a period of remarkable expansion in women’s sports to create a tournament of historic success. The United States and Mexico are collaborating to take the global game to NEW HEIGHTS.
The collective goal is to produce a tournament featuring the world’s best players competing on world-class fields in sold-out venues. The required infrastructure, including training facilities, match sites, base camps, and travel accommodations, is currently in place to offer a strong on-field product and top-level performance throughout the tournament. All players and fans will enjoy world-class facilities and amenities, raising the bar for women’s sports even higher.
“This is a pivotal time for Women’s soccer,” said U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone. “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. The U.S. and Mexico are in a unique position to host a World Cup that will leverage the same venues, infrastructure, and protocols used for the Men’s World Cup just a year prior. As a result, we believe the time is right to host a FIFA Women’s World Cup that features a truly world-class experience for players and fans, alike. This will not only unlock the economic potential of women’s soccer, it will send a message to young players around the world that there is no limit to what they can achieve.”
Ivar Sisniega, President of Mexico Football said: “We are delighted to partner with U.S. Soccer to present the bid for the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup. All of the teams that take part in this tournament will experience the warmth and support of our fans, as evident by the success of our women’s professional leagues. This is a great opportunity to grow women’s football and provide the players equal conditions so that they can shine and show the world what great players they are.”
The NEW HEIGHTS bid intends to capitalize on major efficiencies from the FIFA Men’s World Cup in 2026, such as sporting and transportation infrastructure, as well as proven safety standards. This means that a FIFA Women’s World Cup hosted by the United States and Mexico will be in a unique position to sell out high-capacity stadiums for every match, with most facilities seating over 65,000 people, as well as host fan festivals for millions more. The magnitude of this competition will catapult the game and women’s soccer to NEW HEIGHTS.
