The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is the eighth edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup, the quadrennial international football championship contested by 24 women's national teams representing member associations of FIFA. It is hosted by France between 7 June and 7 July 2019, with matches staged at nine cities.[1]

In March 2015, France won the right to host the event;[2] the first time the country is hosting the tournament, and the third time by a European nation. The United States enters the competition as defending champions after winning the 2015 edition in Canada. It is also the first Women's World Cup to use the video assistant referee (VAR) system.

Host selection

On 6 March 2014, FIFA announced that bidding had begun for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. Member associations interested in hosting the tournament had to submit a declaration of interest by 15 April 2014, and provide the complete set of bidding documents by 31 October 2014.[3] As a principle, FIFA preferred the 2019 Women's World Cup and the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup to be hosted by the same member association, but reserved the right to award the hosting of the events separately.

Initially, five countries indicated interest in hosting the events: England, France, Korea Republic, New Zealand and South Africa. However, the number of bidding nations was narrowed down to two in October 2014, when the French Football Federation and Korea Football Association submitted their official bid documents to FIFA.[2] Both The Football Association and New Zealand Football registered expressions of interest by the April 2014 deadline,[4][5] but in June 2014 it was announced that each would no longer proceed.[6][7] The South African Football Association registered an expression of interest by the April 2014 deadline;[8] however, it later decided to withdraw prior to the final October deadline.[9] Both Japan Football Association and the Swedish Football Association had also expressed interest in bidding for the 2019 tournament, however Japan chose to focus on the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Summer Olympics,[10] whilst Sweden decided to focus on European U-17 competitions instead.[11][12]

The following countries made official bids for hosting the tournament by submitting their documents by 31 October 2014:[13][14]

On 19 March 2015, France officially won the bid to host the Women's World Cup and the U-20 Women's World Cup. The decision came after a vote by the FIFA Executive Committee.[17] Upon the selection, France became the fourth country to host both men's and women's World Cup, having hosted the men's tournament in 1938 and 1998.

Qualification

The slot allocation was approved by the FIFA Council on 13–14 October 2016.[18] The slots for each confederation are unchanged from those of the previous tournament except the slot for the hosts has been moved from CONCACAF (Canada) to UEFA (France).[19]

  • AFC (Asia): 5 slots
  • CAF (Africa): 3 slots
  • CONCACAF (North America, Central America and the Caribbean): 3 slots
  • CONMEBOL (South America): 2 slots
  • OFC (Oceania): 1 slot
  • UEFA (Europe): 8 slots
  • Host Nation: 1 slot
  • CONCACAF–CONMEBOL play-off: 1 slot

Qualifying matches started on 3 April 2017, and ended on 1 December 2018.

Qualified teams

A total of 24 teams qualified for the final tournament.[20] Each team's FIFA Rankings in March 2019 are shown in parenthesis.[21]

Chile, Jamaica, Scotland, and South Africa made their Women's World Cup debuts, while Italy took part in the event for the first time since 1999 and Argentina took part for the first time since 2007. Brazil, Germany, Japan, Nigeria, Norway, Sweden, and the United States qualified for their eighth World Cup, continuing their streak of qualifying for every World Cup held so far.

Venues

Twelve cities were candidates.[22] The final 9 stadiums were chosen on 14 June 2017; Stade de la Beaujoire in Nantes, Stade Marcel-Picot in Nancy, and Stade de l'Abbé-Deschamps in Auxerre were cut.[23]

The semi-finals and final will be played at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in the Lyon suburb of Décines, with 58,000 capacity, while the opening match was played at Parc des Princes in Paris.[24]

Officiating

On 3 December 2018, FIFA announced the list of 27 referees and 48 assistant referees for the tournament.[34][35][36]

On 4 June 2019, FIFA announced that Canadian referee Carol Anne Chenard and Chinese assistant referee Yongmei Cui had pulled out for "health reasons."[37]

Video assistant referees

On 15 March 2019, the FIFA Council approved the use of the video assistant referee (VAR) system for the first time in a FIFA Women's World Cup tournament. The technology was previously deployed at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[38] The fifteen VAR officials were announced by FIFA on 2 May 2019.[39][40]

Draw

The draw for the final tournament was held on 8 December 2018, 18:00 CET (UTC+1), at the La Seine Musicale on the island of Île Seguin, Boulogne-Billancourt.[41] The 24 teams were drawn into six groups of four teams.[42]

The 24 teams were allocated to four pots based on the FIFA Women's World Rankings released on 7 December 2018, with hosts France automatically placed in Pot 1 and position A1 in the draw.[43] Teams from Pot 1 were drawn first and assigned to Position 1. This was followed by Pot 2, Pot 3, and finally Pot 4, with each of these teams also drawn to one of the positions 2–4 within their group. No group could contain more than one team from each confederation apart from UEFA, which have nine teams, where three groups had to contain two UEFA teams.[44][45]

Squads

Each team has to provide to FIFA a preliminary squad of between 23 and 50 players by 26 April 2019, which shall not be published. From the preliminary squad, each team has to name a final squad of 23 players (three of whom must be goalkeepers) by 24 May 2019. Players in the final squad can be replaced by a player from the preliminary squad due to serious injury or illness up to 24 hours prior to kickoff of the team's first match.[46]

Group stage

The match schedule for the tournament was released on 8 February 2018.[47] Following the final draw, seven group stage kick-off times were adjusted by FIFA.[48]

The top two teams of each group and the four best third-placed teams advance to the round of 16.[46]

All times are local, CEST (UTC+2).[48]

Tiebreakers

The ranking of teams in the group stage is determined as follows:[46]

  1. Points obtained in all group matches (three points for a win, one for a draw, none for a defeat);
  2. Goal difference in all group matches;
  3. Number of goals scored in all group matches;
  4. Points obtained in the matches played between the teams in question;
  5. Goal difference in the matches played between the teams in question;
  6. Number of goals scored in the matches played between the teams in question;
  7. Fair play points in all group matches (only one deduction could be applied to a player in a single match):
    • Yellow card: −1 point;
    • Indirect red card (second yellow card): −3 points;
    • Direct red card: −4 points;
    • Yellow card and direct red card: −5 points;
  8. Drawing of lots.

Knockout stage

In the knockout stage, if a match is level at the end of 90 minutes of normal playing time, extra time is played (two periods of 15 minutes each), where each team is allowed to make a fourth substitution. If the score is still level after extra time, the winners are determined by a penalty shoot-out.[46]

Branding

The emblem and slogan were launched on 19 September 2017 at the Musée de l'Homme in Paris.[92] The emblem mimics the shape of the World Cup trophy and features a stylised football surrounded by eight decorative shards of light, symbolising the eighth edition of the Women’s World Cup. It alludes to several French cultural icons:

The World Cup's official English-language slogan is "Dare to Shine"; its French slogan is "Le moment de briller".[24]

Ticketing

FIFA and the local organising committee sold tickets for the Women's World Cup beginning with a pre-sale of individual tickets in December 2018, single-city ticket packages in late 2018, and single-ticket sales for the general public beginning on 7 March 2019.[93] The online platform, hosted by AP2S, permitted fans to print their tickets beginning on 20 May 2019, which included seating assignments that had separated ticketholders who had purchased their tickets as a group or family. FIFA responded to online complaints by referring to a warning in the online system that had reminded purchasers that its tickets would not be guaranteed in the same areas, inciting further outrage, but allowed families with underage children to have adjacent seating.[94][95][96]

Mascot

The official mascot, "ettie", was unveiled on 12 May 2018 at the TF1 Group headquarters, and was broadcast on LCI. She made her first public appearance in Paris in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower. FIFA describe her as "a young chicken with a passion for life and football" and state that "she comes from a long line of feathered mascots, and is the daughter of Footix, the Official Mascot of the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France".[97]

Broadcasting rights

FIFA has, through several companies, sold the broadcasting rights for the World Cup to broadcasters.[98]

Qualifying teams for Summer Olympics

The World Cup will be used by UEFA to qualify three teams for the 2020 Summer Olympic women's football tournament in Japan.[99] If teams in contention for the Olympic spots are eliminated in the same round, ties are not broken by their overall tournament record, and play-offs or a mini-tournament to decide the spots will be held if necessary in early 2020 (in principle February/March). However, only a maximum of four teams may contest the play-offs given that only one international window is available. If there are more than four teams eliminated in the same round, the following tiebreakers are used to determine the four teams competing in the play-offs:[100]

  1. Points in group stage;
  2. Goal difference in group stage;
  3. Goals scored in group stage;
  4. Disciplinary points in group stage (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion for two yellow cards in one match = 3 points);
  5. UEFA coefficient at the time of the play-off draw.

For the first time, as per the agreement between the four British football associations (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales), Great Britain will attempt to qualify for the Olympics through England's performance in the World Cup (a procedure already successfully employed by Team GB in field hockey and rugby sevens). Scotland also qualified for the World Cup but, under the agreement whereby the highest ranked home nation is nominated to compete for the purposes of Olympic qualification, their performance will not be taken into account. In effect, therefore, eight European teams will be competing for three qualification places.[44][101]

Controversies

The final's scheduling on 7 July led to a degree of criticism among supporters of women's football, as two continental men's tournament finals will be held on the same day—the Copa América in Rio de Janeiro and the CONCACAF Gold Cup in Chicago.[102] The lack of outdoor advertising across Paris, except for the Parc des Princes stadium and the temporary World Cup museum at Châtelet, was also criticised.[103]

The Women's World Cup was the first major competition to use the updated Laws of the Game approved by the International Football Association Board (IFAB), which came into effect on 1 June 2019. Among the changes, the more severe punishment of goalkeeper encroachment during penalty kicks—including retakes after a video assistant referee review—gained the most attention and caused several successful saves to be disallowed in the group stage.[104][105] The use of the Women's World Cup as a "guinea pig" for the new changes to the rules was also criticised by footballers and coaches for being potentially sexist, as several concurrent men's continental competitions had not implemented them.[106] Following widespread criticism and a request from FIFA, the IFAB issued a temporary dispensation to waive the requirement to show goalkeepers a yellow card for stepping off the line during a penalty shootout during the knockout stage of the Women's World Cup.[107][108]

The round of 16 fixture between England and Cameroon was marred by misbehaviour from the Cameroonian players, who refused to kick-off for several minutes after the second English goal, deliberately fouled several players, and argued with the referee while huddling around her.[109] Cameroonian defender Augustine Ejangue was also seen on camera spitting onto English winger Toni Duggan after conceding an indirect free kick in the penalty area, which England later scored.[110] After the match, England manager Phil Neville said it "didn't feel like football" and that he was "completely and utterly ashamed of the opposition".[111] Confederation of African Football (CAF) condemned some of the action taken in the match, while also criticising the refereeing, while FIFA announced that it would investigate the match.[112][113]
