Belgium, Germany, Netherlands launch 2027 Women's World Cup bid

Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands unveiled plans on Monday for a joint bid to host the Women's World Cup in 2027. 

Under the slogan, "Three Nations, One Goal," the three federations on Monday said they will detail their plans in an official document by the end of the year before starting negotiations with national governments and potential host cities.  

"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 statement said.

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

A deadline for the bids hasn't yet been set by FIFA. 

The last Women's World Cup in 2019 was hosted by France and the 2023 tournament will be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand. 

Germany previously hosted the tournament 2011 while the Dutch were hosts, and champions, of the last UEFA Women's Championship in 2017. 

It would be the first time Belgium hosted a major women's tournament.
