While focus remains on the 2023 World Cup, The United States Soccer Federation is looking ahead to 2027 and beyond.

Per Sam Stejskal of The Athletic, USSF president Cindy Parlow Cone said the federation “definitely plan on bidding” to host the 2027 or 2031 Women’s World Cup during a press conference Thursday.

The news comes after FIFA announced 16 host cities across the United States, Canada and Mexico as joint hosts of the men’s 2026 World Cup.

Germany, Belgium and Holland have made an official joint bid to host the 2027 tournament, while Chile and a group of Nordic countries have shown interest in submitting bids.

The last time the United States hosted a Women’s World Cup was 2003, with matches played across the country.
