Six in World Cup bid
« on: March 02, 2007, 02:04:04 PM »
The football associations of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Peru and Switzerland are the six FIFA members who formally expressed an interest in organising the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2011 by the 1 March 2007 deadline.

The first step on the way to hosting FIFA’s premier women’s football competition was to submit an official declaration of interest form to FIFA.

FIFA will send the six associations in the near future a document entitled “Organising Association Agreement” and the list of requirements for the competition.

Having declared their interest in organising the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011, the above-mentioned member associations must meet the following deadlines in the bidding procedure:

- 3 May 2007      Deadline for sending FIFA the “Form of Bidding Agreement”;

- 1 August 2007   Deadline for submitting the definitive bid to FIFA, which must include the signed “Organising Association Agreement” and the bid dossier.

The host country will be decided by the FIFA Executive Committee on 31 August 2007. The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011 will be the sixth time that this tournament has been staged.

The FIFA U20 Women's World Cup will be hosted in Chile and their  President, Michelle Bachelet has expressed her full support for her country’s hosting of the tournament at a reception for a FIFA delegation.

President Bachelet, who will be honorary president of the Local Organising Committee (LOC), indicated that the competition could serve to boost the practice of sport, particularly amongst women, something which she said is fundamental for her country.

“The growth of our sport in the coming years will be particularly great in the women’s game. This World Cup provides a huge opportunity for Chileans to see the best players in the world, the future stars of the women’s game, and to experience very exciting and high-quality football.

"It is our intention that this event serve to leave a lasting legacy in Chile, and especially to women’s football in the country, and this event is a great chance to do this.

Of the five (including this year) that there have been so far, I think only one has been in Europe. So it ought to be Europe's "turn", but who knows what criteria they use.

Germany certainly seems to have been the most high profile bidder.
