Germany Confident To Get 2011 Women's World Cup
« on: March 25, 2007, 10:11:21 PM »
Germany has an excellent chance to host the 2011 women's World Cup, the nation's football supremo Theo Zwanziger believes.

Zwanziger told Focus news magazine in a report made available ahead of Monday's publication that it was Europe's turn after the US hosted the event in 1999 and 2003 and China the next edition later this year. The last World Cup in Europe was in Sweden 1995.

Germany's main European rivals are France, but according to Zwanziger the women's game there has not the same standing as in Germany, whose women's team are the reigning world champions.

Other bidders are Switzerland, Peru, Canada and Australia. The host country will be elected on August 31 by the executive board of the world governing body FIFA.
