Qualification process

The slot allocation was approved by the FIFA Council on 13–14 October 2016.[2] The slots for each confederation are unchanged from that of the previous tournament except the slot for the hosts is moved from CONCACAF (Canada) to UEFA (France).[3]

Summary of qualification

Qualifying matches started on 3 April 2017, and are expected to take place until late 2018.

Apart from the host France, 207 of the 210 remaining FIFA member associations can qualify through their own confederation's qualifying process if they choose to enter. The exceptions are Guatemala[4] and Kuwait,[5] whose football associations were suspended by FIFA, and Equatorial Guinea, which have been banned from the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.[6] Guam, Lebanon, Sierra Leone, and Turks and Caicos Islands were initially drawn into qualifying stages but they withdrew from their qualifying tournaments.

More than 30 countries, mostly in Asia and Africa, did not enter qualification, including Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Egypt, which qualified teams for the 2018 men's World Cup.[7]

Confederation qualification

AFC

As in the previous World Cup cycle, the AFC Women's Asian Cup served as the World Cup qualifying tournament for AFC members. The World Cup qualifying process was as follows:[8]

  • Qualifying stage: The qualifying for the 2018 AFC Women's Asian Cup was held from 3 to 12 April 2017.[9] 24 teams entered the competition, with Japan, Australia, and China automatically qualified for the final tournament by their position as the top three teams of the 2014 AFC Women's Asian Cup and thus not participating in the qualifying competition. Jordan also automatically qualified for the final tournament as hosts, but decided to also participate in the qualifying competition.[10] The 21 teams were drawn into one group of six teams and three groups of five teams. In each group, teams played each other once at a centralised venue, and the four group winners qualified for the final tournament. Since Jordan won their group, the runner-up of this group also qualified for the final tournament.
  • Final tournament: Eight teams played in the 2018 AFC Women's Asian Cup, which was held from 6 to 20 April 2018 in Jordan.[11][12] They were drawn into two groups of four teams. The top two teams of each group qualified for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup as well as advance to the knockout stage, while the third-placed teams of each group advanced to the fifth-placed play-off, where the winner of the play-off qualified for the World Cup.

Qualifying stage

Four teams advanced from the qualifying stage: Philippines (who advanced as group runners-up to Jordan who had already automatically qualified for the final tournament as hosts), South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.

CAF

As in the previous World Cup cycle, the Africa Women Cup of Nations will serve as the World Cup qualifying tournament for CAF members. The World Cup qualifying process will be as follows:

  • Qualifying stage: The qualifying for the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations will be held from 4 April to 9 June 2018. 24 teams entered the qualifying competition, with four teams (Nigeria, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, South Africa) earning byes to the second round, and the remaining 20 teams entering the first round. Qualification ties will be played on a home-and-away two-legged basis. The seven winners of the second round will qualify for the final tournament to join the hosts Ghana who qualified automatically.[13]
  • Final tournament: Eight teams will play in the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations, which will be held from 17 November to 1 December 2018 in Ghana.[14][15] They will be drawn into two groups of four teams. The top two teams of each group will advance to the knockout stage, where the winners of the semi-finals and the third place play-off will qualify for the World Cup.

FIFA have banned Equatorial Guinea from qualifying for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, meaning they could not qualify for the World Cup regardless of their performance in the Africa Women Cup of Nations.[6]

UEFA

As in the previous World Cup cycle, UEFA will organise a tournament for its members designed only for World Cup qualifying. The World Cup qualifying process will be as follows:[20]

  • Preliminary round: The 16 lowest-ranked teams of the 46 entrants according to their UEFA coefficient entered the preliminary round,[21] which was held from 3 to 11 April 2017. They were drawn into four groups of four teams, where each group played in single round-robin format at one of the pre-selected hosts. The four group winners and the best runner-up (not counting results against the fourth-placed team) advanced to the qualifying group stage.
  • Qualifying group stage: 35 teams, including the 30 highest-ranked teams which receive byes and the five qualifiers from the preliminary round, will play in the qualifying group stage, which will be held on dates in the FIFA Women's International Match Calendar from 11 September 2017 to 4 September 2018. They were drawn into seven groups of five teams, where each group will be played in home-and-away round-robin format. The seven group winners will qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, while the four best runners-up (not counting results against the fifth-placed team) will advance to the play-offs.
  • Play-offs: The four teams will play two knockout rounds of home-and-away two-legged matches, which will be held from 1 to 9 October and 5 to 13 November 2018, where the winner of the second play-off round will qualify for the World Cup.

Preliminary round

Five teams advanced from the preliminary round: Kazakhstan, Albania, Israel and the Faroe Islands advanced as group winners, and Moldova advanced as the best runner-up.

Qualifying group stage

  The seven group winners qualify directly for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.

Ranking of second-placed teams
To determine the four best second-placed teams from the qualifying group stage which advance to the play-offs, only the results of the second-placed teams against the first, third and fourth-placed teams in their group are taken into account, while results against the fifth-placed team are not included. As a result, six matches played by each second-placed team will count for the purposes of determining the ranking.
