The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup — the eighth edition of the international soccer tournament — will be held in France. This is the first time that the tournament will be held in France.
A total of 24 teams will be competing, with the group stage s for June 7-June 20, Round of 16 from June 22-June 25, quarterfinals on June 27-29, semifinals on July 2-3 and the final on July 7.
The United States enters the tournament as defending champions. The USWNT previously has been unsuccessful in defending its World Cup championships. With a World Cup win in France, the U.S. women would tie the men's teams of Germany and Italy for the second-most World Cup wins behind Brazil's five wins in the men's World Cup. Between the men and women, Germany has won a combined six World Cups, more than any other nation.
