No England Women's World Cup Bid

No England Women's World Cup Bid

Despite earlier expressing an interest in potentially hosting the 2019 Women's World Cup, the Football Association have today dropped their bid.

An expression of interest had been made to FIFA, but today a statement was released by The FA explaining.

'The FA can confirm that it will not be progressing its initial interest in hosting either the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2019, or the U20 Women's World Cup in 2018.'

The statement goes on to say that 'expressions of interest' were made in order for the FA to gain a greater understanding of the bidding process, and the benefits associated with hosting either or both of the tournaments, along with an understanding of the interest expressed so far in hosting them and by who.

'Having assessed all of these factors the FA will not be furthering its interest in these competitions at this time. The FA remains committed to growing women's football and continues to invest in the game domestically both at the elite and grassroots level.'

Had England carried on with their 'interest' they would've potentially faced competition from France, South Korea, New Zealand and South Africa who are currently the countries bidding the host the tournament.
