Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands have announced plans to jointly bid to host the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The three European countries have already expressed their intention to bid to FIFA and have said they will put together a formal agreement by the end of the year, as reported by Reuters.

In a joint statement the countries said: “Women’s football is traditionally known for its strong sense of community, in which all those involved have an eye for the bigger picture, which is namely developing the sport further, both on and off the field.

“The fact that we are tackling this project together as three football competitors, and also good neighbours, ties in very well with this philosophy.

“Women’s football in our countries is indeed in differing phases of development, but we share the aspiration to give the sport a boost nationally and globally by organising this World Cup.”

The previous Women’s World Cup was hosted in France last year while the 2023 edition has been awarded jointly to Australia and New Zealand.

Germany is the only one of the three nations behind the combined bid that has hosted the tournament before, doing so in 2011.

The Netherlands hosted the last edition of the Women’s European Championship in 2017, a tournament the Dutch won.

Belgium has never hosted a major women’s football tournament in its history.
