FIFA: Women’s World Cup Will Expand To 32 Team In 2023

The Women’s World Cup is ready to expand, in a move which certainly benefit the confederation which landed seven of the eight quarter-finalists at this summer’s tournament.

The 2023 tournament will include 32 teams, and the short-term results will be more growth of the game worldwide as well as a few more blowouts in the group stage.

The tournament expansion also means the end of poor third-place teams getting spots in the knockout rounds.

According to FIFA:

The FIFA Council has unanimously agreed to a proposal to expand the number of teams taking part in the FIFA Women’s World Cup from 24 to 32, with effect as of the next edition of the tournament in 2023.

Since the bidding process for the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 is already underway − with the nine bidders initially expected to submit their bid books by 4 October 2019 – the FIFA Council exceptionally made this decision remotely, and not at one of its meetings, the next of which is scheduled for 23-24 October in Shanghai.

Having been presented with a background document on the expansion, FIFA’s decision-making body voted in favour of adopting the 32-team format and, as a consequence, updating the hosting requirements and the timeline of the bidding process for 2023.
