Women’s World Cup introduction
Let’s start with some basic to get you on track. The Women’s World Cup will have 24 qualified nations, that all competes for the World Cup trophy. This year the host nation will be France and they’ll play the first game of the World Cup against South Korea on the 7th of June at 21:00 o’clock, so be sure to tune in to watch the game. We’re going to see 36 matches in the groups that are divided across 9 cities in France on 9 iconic stadiums. Each group has 4 nations and the top 2 from each group proceeds to the knockout stages, while the 4 best third places also goes through. From there it’s all win or go home, until we’ve found a new World Cup Champion on the 7th of July.
Women’s World Cup Winners
The first ever Women’s World Cup was held back in 1991 in China, and it was that day USA started their history as most winning nation, as they took their fist gold medal. The World Cup has since 1991 been held every fourth year and this year is going to be the 8th World Cup. We’ve seen 4 nations win the World Cup trophy: USA, Norway, Japan and Germany, with USA being the most winning with their 3 World Cup wins. But who do you think is going to be the next World Cup Champion this year?
Even though we got a strong lineup for this summer’s World Cup, with favourites such as USA, Germany, England, France, a lot of other great nations didn’t qualify. Mentionable nations are Denmark, Switzerland and Belgium. But other teams made history with their qualification. For instance, this will be Jamaica’s World Cup debut this summer, so a lot of great things are going to happen this summer.
