[WED 30 DEC 2020 – 17:43:06 UTC]
FIFA have announced the allocations for the 2023 Women’s World Cup, the first with 32 teams. UEFA have eleven places, the AFC five, CONCACAF four, CONMEBOL three, and CAF four. In addition, there are three places available through an expanded set of playoffs.
The new playoff format sees a total of ten teams compete: two each from the AFC, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and CAF, and one each from UEFA and the OFC. The teams will be drawn into three brackets, each to be held in a central location in either Australia or New Zealand.
In two of the brackets, two teams will play off in a single match, with the winner playing another match against a seeded team for a place at the final tournament. In the other bracket, four teams will play, in two semifinals followed by a final match. The dates of the playoffs are still to be determined.
The Women’s World Cup will be held during the period of MON 10 JUL-SUN 20 AUG 2023 in Australia and New Zealand. The exact dates and host venues will be finalised later.
