The association between China PR and the USA stretches beyond the 1991 tournament: they are also the only two countries to have hosted the Women’s World Cup on two separate occasions (1991 and 2007 in China PR, 1999 and 2003 in the USA).

France 2019 will be the third time that the tournament has been played on European soil, following Sweden 1995 and Germany 2011.
