During the meeting, Japan outlined its top-class facilities and also emphasised that Japanese culture will be incorporated as part of efforts to further elevate the tournament.
As the only nation in the world to have won the FIFA Women's World Cup in all categories (FIFA Women's World Cup Germany 2011, FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Costa Rica 2014, FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup France 2018), Japan has been unwavering in their efforts to promote the women’s game.
“Japan has been striving to host the Women's World Cup since 2007,” said Tashima.
“We have the capacity and experience to host mega sporting events and we have a strong passion towards women’s football. As part of our aspirations to host FIFA Women’s World Cup, we want to raise the tournament to a new and higher level, and to further promote the success of female athletes.”
