The FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup is an international football competition contested by the senior women's national teams of the members of Fédération Internationale de Football
Football
Association (FIFA), the sport's global governing body. The competition has been held every four years since 1991, when the inaugural tournament, then called the Women's World Championship, was held in China. Under the tournament's current format, national teams vie for 23 slots in a three-year qualification phase. (The host nation's team is automatically entered as the 24th slot.) The tournament proper, alternatively called the World Cup Finals, is contested at venues within the host nation(s) over a period of about one month. The seven FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup tournaments have been won by four different national teams, including the United States, which beat Norway
Norway
2–1 in the first final. The current champion is the United States, after winning their third title in the 2015 FIFA

Women's World Cup.

History[edit] In 1988 – 58 years after the first Men's FIFA
FIFA
World Cup tournament in 1930 and approximately 17 years after the FA ban on women's football was eliminated in 1971[1] — FIFA
FIFA
hosted an invitational in China
China
as a test to see if a global women's World Cup was feasible. Twelve national teams took part in the competition – four from UEFA, three from AFC, two from CONCACAF
CONCACAF
and one from CONMEBOL, CAF and OFC. The tournament saw European champion Norway
Norway
defeat Sweden
Sweden
1–0 in the final to win the tournament, while Brazil
Brazil
clinched third place by beating the hosts in a penalty shootout. The competition was deemed a success and on 30 June FIFA
FIFA
approved the establishment of an official World Cup, which was to take place in 1991 again in China.[2] Again, twelve teams competed, this time culminating in the United States beating Norway
Norway
in the final 2-1.

In the 1999 edition, one of the most famous moments of the tournament was American defender Brandi Chastain's victory celebration after scoring the Cup-winning penalty kick against China. She took off her jersey and waved it over her head (as men frequently do), showing her muscular torso and sports bra as she celebrated. The 1999 final in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California
Pasadena, California
had an attendance of 90,185, a world record for a women's sporting event.[3] The 1999 and 2003 Women's World Cups were both held in the United States; in 2003 China
China
was supposed to host it, but the tournament was moved because of SARS.[4] As compensation, China
China
retained its automatic qualification to the 2003 tournament as host nation, and was automatically chosen to host the 2007 FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup. Germany hosted the 2011 FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup, as decided by vote in October 2007. In March 2011, FIFA
FIFA
awarded Canada
Canada
the right to host the 2015 FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup. The 2015 edition saw the field expand from 16 to 24 teams.[5] During the 2015 FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup, both Formiga of Brazil
Brazil
and Homare Sawa
Homare Sawa

Japan
made a record of appearing in six World Cups,[6] a feat that had never been achieved before by either female or male players. Christie Rampone

FIFA
awarded France
France
the right to host the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup over South Korea.[8] The tournament will begin on 1 June 2019 and the final will be played on 30 June 2019[9]; both the opening and final matches will be played at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, a venue with a capacity of 58,000 in the Lyon
Lyon
suburb of Décines. Format[edit] Qualification[edit] Main article: FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup qualification Qualifying tournaments are held within the six FIFA
FIFA
continental zones (Africa, Asia, North and Central America and Caribbean, South America, Oceania, Europe), and are organised by their respective confederations: Confederation of African Football
Confederation of African Football
(CAF), Asian Football
Football
Confederation (AFC), Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football
Football
(CONCACAF), South American Football Confederation CONMEBOL, Oceania Football Confederation
Oceania Football Confederation
(OFC), and Union of European Football
Football
Associations UEFA). For each tournament, FIFA
FIFA
decides beforehand the number of berths awarded to each of the continental zones, based on the relative strength of the confederations' teams. The hosts of the World Cup receive an automatic berth in the finals. Since the 2015 FIFA
FIFA
Women's World Cup, the number of finalists increased from 16 to 24.[10] Final tournament[edit] The final tournament has featured between twelve and twenty-four national teams competing over about one month in the host nation(s). There are two stages: the group stage followed by the knockout stage.[11] In the group stage, teams are drawn into groups of four teams each. Each group plays a round-robin tournament, in which each team is scheduled for three matches against other teams in the same group. The last round of matches of each group is scheduled at the same time to preserve fairness among all four teams. In the 2015 24-team format, the two teams finishing first and second in each group and the four best teams among those ranked third qualify for the round of 16, also called the knockout stage. Points are used to rank the teams within a group. Since 1994, three points have been awarded for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss (before, winners received two points). The ranking of each team in each group is determined as follows:[11]

Greatest number of points in group matches Greatest goal difference in group matches Greatest number of goals scored in group matches If more than one team remain level after applying the above criteria, their ranking will be determined as follows:

Greatest number of points in head-to-head matches among those teams Greatest goal difference in head-to-head matches among those teams Greatest number of goals scored in head-to-head matches among those teams

If any of the teams above remain level after applying the above criteria, their ranking will be determined by the drawing of lots

The knockout stage is a single-elimination tournament in which teams play each other in one-off matches, with extra time and penalty shootouts used to decide the winner if necessary. It begins with the round of 16. This is followed by the quarter-finals, semi-finals, the third-place match (contested by the losing semi-finalists), and the final.[11] Results[edit] See also: List of FIFA
