Faroe Islands working together with Nordic countries on joint bid to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup

Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands are working together on a potential joint bid to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup, reports BBC.

BBC writes that the six Nordic football federations met earlier in February to discuss the idea and will now look to identify possible cities and stadiums for the tournament.

A statement added: “The six football federations have so far concluded that a joint application should be based on common Nordic values.

“[We] will join together for an application for one of the greatest future international football championships.”

The 2019 World Cup begins in France on 7 June, while Fifa will determine the hosts of the 2023 event next year.
