In a letter released Friday, U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone revealed that the Federation is discussing the possibility of bidding on the 2031 Women’s World Cup.

Cone included the note about the World Cup in two letters she wrote to the co-sponsors of the Even Playing Field Act and the Equal Pay for Team USA Act of 2021, expressing the Federation’s support for both pieces of legislation.

“The U.S. Soccer Federation’s (U.S. Soccer) core mission is to make soccer, in all its forms, the preeminent sport in the United States,” she wrote.

The U.S. will serve as one of the host nations of the 2026 Men’s World Cup after winning the bid alongside Canada and Mexico.

“The Federation will use the 2026 Men’s World Cup, which is projected to be the biggest sporting event in world history, to generate additional interest in women’s soccer and grow the game for women and girls all across the country,” Cone wrote.
