The statement read as follows:
The three nations, represented by Peter Bossaert (general-secretary RBFA), Heike Ullrich (deputy general-secretary DFB) and Gijs de Jong (general-secretary KNVB), have a clear and common goal: “Women’s football is known worldwide for its strong sense of community. All parties involved have an eye on the bigger picture. And that’s taking the sport to the next level together, both on and off the pitch. The fact that we, as rivals and good neighbors, can pick-up this project together is in line with this idea. Although the development of women’s football in our individual countries is in different stages, we share the ambition to give the sport a huge boost, both nationally and internationally. We strongly believe that this special piece of teamwork can make the difference and increase our chances to host this tournament.”
The regional effort would be a terrific solution to provide the three countries with access to an excellent level of football and would make for a rousing trip to anyone looking to travel to the event.
The multi-nation bid is following a trend for World Cup events. Australia and New Zealand won the bid to host the 2023 Women’s World Cup, while the United States, Mexico, and Canada won their collective bid for the 2026 Men’s World Cup.
