71th FIFA Congress, Zurich 2021
The 71st FIFA Congress has unanimously voted to bring the bidding process for the hosting of the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ in line with the process for the men’s FIFA World Cup™. The allocation of all future hosts will be voted on by the FIFA Congress, just as is the case with the FIFA World Cup, and will no longer be decided by the FIFA Council (as was still the case most recently in June 2020, when Australia and New Zealand were announced as hosts of the 2023 edition in a transparent vote).
In his address to all 211 FIFA member associations, President Gianni Infantino outlined 11 areas for action in football over the coming year, in which FIFA will take a leading role. From improving the men’s and women’s international match calendars for the sake of the players, to looking at opportunities to use modern technology to further connect the global football community, President Infantino listed the top priorities for world football’s governing body
