Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium have announced a joint bid to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup.
The three countries’ football associations said they had presented plans to world governing body Fifa and will draft further details, such as the host cities, in the coming months.
The 2023 edition will be held in Australia and New Zealand.
Germany hosted the Women’s World Cup in 2011, while the Netherlands staged the Women’s Euro 2017 championship. Belgium has never held a major women’s tournament.
