The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup is the 9th World Women’s football competition will be held in Australia and New Zealand 20 July – 20 August. 32 teams will take part in the tournament.

History of the FIFA Women’s World Cup

The first Women’s World Cup took place 61 years after the Men’s World Cup. For a long time, women’s football was banned, and eventually in the 1970s some countries started to form women’s national teams. In 1988 an international invitation tournament was held in China among 12 teams from all continents which was a success.

Finally, it was decided to organize the first Women’s World Cup, which was held from 16 November to 30 November 1991 in China. The teams of the USA and Norway reached the final. Then, on 30 November, they competed for the championship at the Guangzhou Stadium. For the first time in their history, the Americans became world champions, defeating the Norwegian team with a score of 2:1.
