Spain to defend Women’s World Cup in Brazil in 2027

The 74th FIFA Congress, held this Friday in Bangkok, has voted to grant the South American country the right to host the tournament in its tenth edition.

The historic day of August 20, 2023, which culminated with Spain’s conquest of the first women's World Cup trophy for the Spanish, is now firmly part of Spain’s football legacy. However, this Friday, a new objective arose over the horizon, providing more stars to aim for.

This new objective’s location was confirmed in Bangkok by the vote held during the 74th FIFA Congress between the two final nations bidding to host the Women's World Cup in the year 2027: the joint bid of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, as well as the stand alone one proposed by Brazil.

The representatives of the 211 national federations, with President Pedro Rocha heading the Spanish delegation, voted to award the tournament to the South American country, the first time Brazil has taken on the task of hosting a Women's World Cup.

The vote was held after detailed presentations of both bids in the main hall of the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in the Thai capital and then it was the turn of FIFA President Gianni Infantino to reveal the result of the vote.

Emotional words of thanks from the head of the CBF, Ednaldo Rodrigues, rounded off the election process, during which the photograph of Spain, as reigning champions of the tournament, presided over proceedings.
