FIFA received four bids to host the 2027 women’s World Cup, soccer’s governing body said on Monday, with the hosts set to be appointed at its Congress in May next year.

Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands have submitted a joint expression of interest to host the tournament while the other joint bid includes the United States and Mexico.

Brazil and South Africa were the other two countries to submit a bid. FIFA said it would send the Bidding Agreement to all interested countries, who will have until May 19 to confirm their involvement.

“We are thrilled by the expressions of interest received, not least because they come from member associations with a strong football tradition representing four confederations…” FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura said.

“All member associations can rely on the most robust and comprehensive bidding process in the history of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.”
