The FIFA World Cup Draw will take place on Saturday 22 October in Auckland, New Zealand. New Zealand will host the World Finals with Australia next year. Dutch footballers have the qualification for the World Cup in their hands.
Coach Mark Parsons’ team is second in the group with 14 points, one point behind Iceland. The two countries meet at the end of the qualifiers on September 6 in the Netherlands. The lionesses qualify for the 2023 World Cup. In 2019, they reached the final of the World Championships in France. The USA was very strong in this with a score of 2-0.
32 countries are participating in the ninth edition of the Women’s World Cup, an increase of eight from the previous World Cup. In the draw, at the Aotea Center in Auckland, participants will be divided into eight groups. In addition to the two hosts, nine teams have now qualified.
New Zealand will play the opening match in Auckland on July 20, and the World Cup final will take place in Sydney, Australia on August 20. “The preparations for the biggest women’s sporting event are in full swing,” said FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura. “This World Cup has the power to inspire and encourage girls and women to take part in football.”
