It is football season everywhere. And women are not far behind. The Women’s Fifa World Cup is all set to launch today at the playgrounds of France.
It’s the 8th Women’s World Cup at France!
To kick-start off the series, the debut match would be played between the host country- France and South Korea. Where and When? 7June @ Le Parc des Princes in Paris
The host country is currently at 4th rank. Therefore, the French are expected to go all the way to the finals in sync with their ranking.
Food for thought-
The competition has been around since 1991. With ever increasing participation, this year 24 countries would be a part of the Fifa World Cup. Moreover, the series would go on for a month and would be played in nine cities.
Additionally, this is the debut year for four teams- Chile, Scotland, South Africa, and Jamaica.
