FIFA Women’s Soccer World Cup History

The Women's Soccer World Cup has a fascinating history. Initially, Women's football was not legal. However, this changed in the early 1970s when several countries lifted the ban. Italy went ahead to host the first-ever professional Women's soccer competition. The game attracted many spectators leading to the formation of continental tournaments. 

In 1984, Ellen Wille pointed out that FIFA did not show any interest in Women's soccer. This is despite the apparent success of the Women's Continental Tournament held in the same year. However, her statement made a difference as FIFA sent an invitation. It is one of the reasons why Ellen Wille is considered the mother of football.

In 1988, China held an invitational tournament which was successful. 12 teams participated from different confederations, including CONCACAF and UEFA. The first match, which was between China and Canada, attracted a crowd of 45,000 people. The rest of the matches had an average crowd of 20,000 people. 

Considered a success, FIFA went ahead to establish the Women's World Cup, initially called the FIFA Women's World Championship. The first World Cup for women took place in 1991. Since then, FIFA has held the competition every four years, one year after the Men's competition.

The Country with the Most Hosted Women’s Soccer World Cup Finals

In the FIFA Women's Soccer World Cup history, only the USA and China have hosted the most finals (twice each). China hosted the Women's World Cup finals in 1991 and 2007, while the USA hosted the 1999 and 2003 finals.

Participating Soccer Federations

Teams from 6 FIFA confederations participate in the FIFA World Cup. So far, the participating soccer confederations include:

CONCACAF

The North, Central American, and Caribbean Association Football Confederation started operating in 1961. However, it was not until 1991 that they introduced the women's competition. Members of the confederation include the likes of Mexico, Canada and Team USA, the Women's World Cup reigning champions.

Other members are Haiti, Guatemala, Trinidad, and Tobago. Team USA is the only CONCACAF member that has won the FIFA World Cup with four titles. It is also the sportsbook's favorite for this year.

CONMEBOL

CONMEBOL has been fully operational since 1916. In 1991, CONMEBOL Copa América Femenina was introduced. The confederation has 10 members, including Brazil, Venezuela, Chile, Paraguay, and Argentina. Unfortunately, none of the members have won the FIFA World Cup yet. 

However, Brazil was the runner-up in the 2007 competition and is the sportsbooks' favorite this year. Despite winning only two of their last five matches, the team is in great form.

UEFA

The Union of European Football Associations was established in 1954. After 67 years, the federation founded the UEFA Women's Championship. UEFA has 55 members, including France, England, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, and Germany. 

Out of the 55 members, only Germany and Norway have won the World Cup titles. Germany won the trophy in 2003 and 2007, and Norway in 1995. However, none of these teams are this year's favorites. Instead, the strongest team is England. England have won four of their last five matches and boasts a great line-up.

CAF

CAF, or The Confederation of African Football, as it is also known, was launched in 1957. However, it was only in 2020 that the Women's tournament was introduced. CAF's member teams include Morocco, South Africa, and Zambia. 

Unfortunately, the women's teams have yet to win the FIFA World Cup. However, for the 2023 World Cup, Morocco is the strongest team. Morocco has Imane Saoud, one of the best African Midfielders.

AFC

Headquartered in Manilla, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) was launched in 1954 and formed the AFC Women's Asian Cup in 1975. The confederation's members include Australia, India, South Korea, and Japan. Japan is the only team that has won the FIFA World Cup. 

For the 2023 World Cup, Australia is the strongest team and will likely be the group b winner. As one of the co-hosts, Australia is under pressure to perform better. They also have Gustavsson, an incredible coach who always uses the 4-2-3-1 formation.

OCF

The Oceania Confederation was established in 1966. However, OFC Women's Nations Cup has been around since 1983. Some of the members include New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji, and Solomon Islands.

None of the teams from the confederation have ever won the World Cup. However, for the 2023 competition, New Zealand is the strongest team. New Zealand qualified automatically for the World Cup, one of the benefits of hosting the competition.

FIFA Women’s Soccer World Cup Trophy

The trophy for the FIFA Women's World Cup was introduced in 1991. Angelo Brogioli designed the trophy, and it was used up to 1995. 

Norway won the World Cup in 1995 and took the trophy home as it was the norm. However, in 1997, the cup disappeared during the renovations of Norway's Stadium. Fortunately, Briogioli had a replica of the trophy, which he handed over to FIFA. The trophy is displayed in Zurich at the FIFA World Football Museum. 

 FIFA introduced another trophy in 1997. William Sawaya designed the trophy, whereas Moroni and Sawaya developed it. The trophy weighs 4.6kg and has a height of 47 centimeters. Its top is brass with gold plating, whereas the bottom material is made of Candeias granite. The bottom also contains a plate with a list of teams that have won the World Cup since 1991.

The Country with the Most World Cup Titles

The USWNT has won the World Cup four times. They lifted the trophy in the 1991, 1999, 2015, and 2019 editions of the tournament.

Records and Awards

The FIFA world cup has other awards besides the World Champions title. For instance, at the end of the competition, FIFA presents the top goalscorer and the goalkeeper with least received goals with the golden boot and golden glove awards.  

For example, Miraildes Maciel Mota of Brazil has the most FIFA appearances. She has participated in 7 different FIFA Women's World Cup tournaments. On the other hand, Hope Solo of USWNT has won two golden glove awards. Solo became the best goalkeeper in 2011 and 2015. 

Finally, team USA holds the record for the highest number of World Cup titles. As has been noted, USWNT has won the World Cup four times.

FIFA Rankings and Seeds

Since the introduction of the Women's World Cup, FIFA ranks teams based on their performance. The governing body uses points gathered on every game to determine which team occupies a particular spot on the list. The best-performing teams get the highest rankings and seeds. 

You can use the information to determine who is likely to advance to the finals. High-ranking teams tend to perform better compared to low-ranking teams. Moreover, the list keeps changing as the tournament advances.

Format of The FIFA Women’s Socer World Cup 2023

The Women's World Cup has a distinct format. First, teams must qualify for the tournament by playing matches in their respective confederations. After that, they compete in the group stage before advancing to the round of 16. The round of 16 winners advance to the other stages of the competitions, as noted below:

Qualification - the Road to Australia and New Zealand

The qualification stage saw teams in their respective confederations compete for a spot in the World Cup. FIFA arranged the qualification format of all confederations except for UEFA — UEFA teams (51 countries) were placed in 9 groups of five or six teams each. The countries competed in a round-robin format (home-and-away) to determine the 9 teams that qualify for the tournament. The runners-up took part in the UEFA playoffs to determine the teams that will fill the remaining (two) slots.

Each confederation was assigned a specific number of slots to fill. However, the remaining three slots were filled using inter-confederation playoffs. A total of 10 countries took part in the playoffs, including teams like Senegal and Thailand. Ultimately, the best three teams joined the other 27 countries and 2 host nations who qualified automatically for the 2023 FIFA World Cup.

Group Stage - Tables and Standings

The FIFA World Cup has 8 groups of 4 teams each. To create the groups, FIFA randomly drew teams from four pots. Teams from the same confederation were not allowed to appear in the same group except for UEFA where up to two UEFA teams could be in the same group. 

The final draw took place on 22nd October 2022 in Auckland. The tournament's group stage was then scheduled to take place from 20th July to 3rd August. Some of the arenas that would host group matches include Brisbane Stadium and Waikato Stadium.
